Isn’t still hard to believe? Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang had a fallout with Mikel Arteta before suddenly signing for FC Barcelona on a free deal.

Following Aubameyang’s shock departure from Arsenal to Barcelona, it was later reported that the Gabonese star simply took a salary pay cut at Barca, compared to what he was earning at the Gunners.

According to Aubameyang his father and lawyer, who negotiated the deal, knew that Aubamayeng was to grab a lifetime opportunity by playing for Barcelona.

“My father did it all with my lawyer and they can say it best,” he told Mundo Deportivo.

“But the week before, we already knew that I could end up signing for Barca. The week before, there were already contacts and I knew it.

“I really wanted to go to Barca. I gave up my salary because it is an opportunity that you have once in your life,” he added.

Meanwhile, the 32-year-old striker and his teammates are due at Napoli’s ground ahead of Thursday night’s UEFA Europa League game.
