Chelsea have already lost out to Barca in the current transfer window a few times, as the Blaugrana have signed away from many stars that The Blues were also interested in.

BarcaUniversal has now reported that despite the English club’s interest, Aubameyang has no intention of leaving Spain. The site noted that has been dreaming of a move to Barcelona and won’t throw away that chance after just six months.

Aubameyang has only played 23 games for Barcelona in all competitions thus far but has scored 13 goals during those appearances.

This season he will also face competition from former Borussia Dortmund teammate, Robert Lewandowski.

Barcelona could miss out on transfer targets César Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso after angering Chelsea

Barcelona’s ruthless transfer policy this summer has not only angered players but some clubs as well.

The Spanish club have already upset Frenkie de Jong by demanding that he leave the club and by not paying him his outstanding money, and now they’ve angered English side Chelsea as well.

As reported by Barca Universal, the English club are angry with the Catalan giants and have since blocked negotiations for both César Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso.
