Embattled Chelsea striker, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was spotted cheering on Barcelona during El Clasico against Real Madrid on March 19.

The former Arsenal skipper joined the Blues from the Catalans during the 2022 summer transfer window but has found game time hard to come by.

According to Goal, Aubameyang has made little to no impact since his arrival at Stamford Bridge, with the forward enduring a disastrous stint with the 2021 Champions League winners.

He has struggled to the point that he has been frozen out of the team, with Graham Potter overlooking him on a number of occasions.

The Gabonese was not in action during Chelsea's Premier League clash against Everton over the weekend, and the forward used the opportunity to fly out to Spain to watch Barcelona in action.

Aubameyang spotted at Camp Nou

The 33-year-old forward was spotted at Camp Nou on Sunday, cheering on his former side as they battled fiercest rivals, Real Madrid during El Clasico.

Auba is understood to have joined his former teammates in the dressing room shortly after their 2-1 epic win over the La Liga champions.

Goals from Sergi Roberts and Franck Kessie were enough to earn Barcelona the maximum points at home.

Meanwhile, Auba's return to Camp Nou comes at a time when he has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge after just one season with Chelsea.

Barcelona are believed to be among the top destinations for the former Gabon international.

What Potter, Chelsea must fix

Sports Brief had earlier reported on the things Potter needs to fix at Chelsea immediately to save his job, as he faces arguably the greatest test of his career in keeping the sinking Blues afloat.

Talks have been rife that perhaps managing a 'top-six' English club came a tad too soon for a manager who had shown so much promise at Brighton & Hove Albion and at Östersunds.

Potter has learned that excellent performances without results no longer cut it and his favourite excuse of the 'players having given everything' after a loss has rubbed fans the wrong way.
