Aubameyang Joins Marseille On Three-Year Contract

Aubameyang Joins Marseille On Three-Year Contract

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has completed his move to Marseille from Chelsea.

The 34-year-old signed a three-year contract with the Ligue 1 club but his transfer fee wasn't disclosed.

He will join his new club in Germany as part of their pre-season plans. 

Chelsea confirmed his departure in a statement, stating: “We would like to thank Pierre and wish him well as he begins the next chapter of his career.”

Aubameyang joined Chelsea from Barcelona in a £10.3 million deal last September.

He endured a turbulent spell at Stamford Bridge, mustering three goals in 21 appearances and starting only 11 matches.

The Gabon striker was thought to be in line for a return to the Nou Camp, where he scored 13 goals in 24 games, until Marseille came calling.

His departure makes him the 13th player to leave the Bridge permanently as the Blues are reducing the size of their squad this summer.

He has previous experience in Ligue 1, playing 120 times in the competition for Saint-Etienne, Dijon, Lille as well as Monaco and scoring 41 goals across those games.

With 92 goals for Arsenal and 141 strikes for Borussia Dortmund, Aubameyang will become Marseille's main attacking threat, starring alongside former Arsenal teammates like Alexis Sanchez and Matteo Guendouzi.
