Chelsea misfit Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is reportedly willing to take a pay cut to return to Barcelona this coming summer.

According to a report by Spanish outlet SPORT, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is keen on rejoining Barcelona. The Chelsea misfit is even ready to reduce his salary to return to Spotify Camp Nou in the summer transfer window. And the decision-makers at the Catalan club are fond of the veteran striker.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had the world at his feet just two years ago. He was scoring goals for fun, won the Premier League Golden Boot and became the Arsenal captain. The Gunners were also desperate to keep him for the long haul, only for things to turn sour all of a sudden. And since then, the Gabonese striker’s career has spiralled out of control.

The 33-year-old was phenomenal for Barcelona in the second half of the 2022/23 season. And he ended the campaign as the Catalan club’s joint-top scorer, despite only being there for four months. But Barcelona parted ways with him after just six months following the arrival of Robert Lewandowski.

The veteran striker returned to England, joining Chelsea on deadline day last summer. But he has failed to stamp his authority at Stamford Bridge, managing only three goals and one assist in 848 minutes of game time. And Aubameyang’s stock has reduced so much that he has featured for only seven minutes since the January transfer window shut down.

The Chelsea misfit does not feature in Graham Potter’s plans. And Barcelona’s eagerness to re-sign Aubameyang might be good news for Chelsea. Meanwhile, the 33-year-old is open to taking a pay cut to rejoin Barcelona in the summer transfer window.

The former Arsenal captain knows Barcelona’s financial situation has not improved much in the last few months. Yet, he dreams of rejoining the Blaugrana and is ready to reduce his wages. In addition, the decision-makers at Spotify Camp Nou are fond of Aubameyang, meaning a summer reunion might be on the cards.
