Chelsea striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang made a positive gesture on social media that has led to speculation about his potential return to Barcelona. He shared an Instagram story of El Classico that he was watching on his tablet, hinting at his admiration for his former team.
Aubameyang is reportedly unhappy with his playing time at Chelsea and feels undervalued by the London-based club. This has sparked rumors about his future, with Barcelona being mentioned as a possible destination.
The Gabonese striker, who previously left an iconic celebration at the Santiago Bernabéu, enjoyed his ex-teammates victory in the first leg of the Copa del Rey semifinals. The match was a tight affair, without great chances for either team and a solid display of resistance from Xavi’s men, sealed by a Militao own goal.
Despite his brief stint with the Catalan club, Aubameyang remains a fan favorite among the Camp Nou faithful. In just 24 appearances for La Blaugrana, he managed to score 13 goals and provide one assist, leaving a lasting impression on the Blaugranes.
With Barcelona looking for a potential backup for their main striker Robert Lewandowski, Aubameyang’s social media post could be a potential hint towards his interest in returning to Barcelona as per the report from SPORT, but it is unclear whether the Gabonese player will move to Barcelona or seek a new opportunity elsewhere to feel more valued.
