Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has finally completed his move to Spanish club, Barcelona.
The club unveiled him today on its Twitter page.
Aubameyang’s contract at Arsenal was terminated by mutual consent on Tuesday, with the 32-year-old having arrived in Spain on deadline day to thrash out terms with Barca.
A potential loan deal was explored first but the Blaugrana were unable to match Aubameyang’s £340,000-per-week salary and so the Gunners subsequently agreed to let him go as a free agent and sign for the Liga giants on a permanent deal.
Aubameyang trained with the Barca first team ahead of the deal being concluded and the club have now announced his arrival on a three-and-a-half-year contract.
“FC Barcelona and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang have reached an agreement for the player to join the club after the striker terminated his contract with Arsenal FC,” a statement on the Blaugrana’s official website reads.
“The player will sign a contract until 30 June 2025 with an option to agree departure on 30 June 2023 and his buy-out clause will be set at 100 million euros.
“Shortly the club will provide details of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s presentation as a first-team player.”
