Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA ) has banned Gabon forward, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from playing for football clubs outside of Barcelona and Chelsea.
The Gabonese desire to play for Atletico Madrid has now met a brick wall owing to the ban placed on him by FIFA.
Recall that Aubameyang moved to Stamford Bridge from Barca in the summer while Thomas Tuchel was still in charge of the team.
The height of it was Potter bringing on Aubameyang in the fourth minute against Manchester City last week and taking him off in the 67th minute.
Not pleased with the arrangement and lack of game time at Chelsea, Auba is planning his way out.
Soccer pundit and trasfer expert, Fabrizio Romano, tweeted on Wednesday: “Aubameyang can’t play for any other club than Barcelona & Chelsea due to FIFA rules. 100% confirmed.
“Been told Barça would love the idea to bring Auba back… but only if it’s 100% free transfer, different salary terms and only if Memphis Depay leaves (Atléti want him).”
