Striker suspended by Borussia Dortmund for the third time has a deteriorating relationship with the German press
Even a decade after he left to join Milan as a 17-year-old apprentice, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang still regards the picturesque medi town of Laval in western France as his home. Last summer the Borussia Dortmund forward, who could replace Alexis Sánchez at Arsenal, had just beaten Robert Lewandowski to finish as the Bundesliga’s top scorer with 31 goals when he was spotted wearing a shirt he had exchanged with Antoine Griezmann as he played a game of five-a-side with his friends in the Park de Saint-Berthevin.
“It allows me to maintain my shape,” he explained. “Every time I leave Laval, I feel really good, my body is rested. I’m going back to Dortmund full of energy.”Continue reading...

• Mourinho admits: ‘Most probably other big clubs are interested’• Chelsea wait in wings after Manchester City step back from bidding
José Mourinho believes “other big clubs” are interested in the Arsenal forward, Alexis Sánchez, despite Manchester City appearing to clear the way for Manchester United to secure the Chile forward citing the escalating costs of any deal.
City have stepped back from the bidding, for now at least, for a player they had originally hoped to secure for around £20m in January. They suspect Chelsea, rival suitors last summer, have expressed late interest in Sánchez, despite the fact the Premier League champions would have to offer wages virtually double those paid to Eden Hazard to meet the Arsenal player’s salary demands. There has been no formal contact between the two London clubs.Continue reading...
