Chelsea outcast scuppers their transfer plans by snubbing exit after ‘club agreed loan’ to stay and fight for place –

PIERRE EMERICK-AUBAMEYANG has snubbed the chance to leave Chelsea for the MLS.

Aubameyang, 33, was lured to Chelsea by Thomas Tuchel last summer despite enjoying a fine spell at Barcelona.

The pair knew each other well from their time together at Borussia Dortmund.

And it was hoped that ex-Arsenal captain Aubameyang could be the man to fire Tuchel’s side to silverware.

But the veteran managed just one game before his pal was axed by Todd Boehly and he has suffered since after netting just three times in 17 games since Graham Potter replaced the German..

After falling down the Stamford Bridge pecking order, the striker’s latest blow came when he was axed from Chelsea’s 25-man Champions League squad.

However, there was hope that Aubameyang’s career could be reignited after American outfit LAFC made an approach and Chelsea agreed to let him go there on loan.

But now The Telegraph have claimed that the ex Barcelona star has rejected the opportunity to go to America.

And instead he would rather stay and try and fight for his place at Stamford Bridge.

The Gabon star had been hoping to rejoin Barcelona in January.


There were no other options at the time as Aubameyang was not able to pay for a third club in the same season.

And that appears to have left him in limbo with Potter hardly giving him a sniff in the starting XI.
