Arsenal star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang seems to have hinted that he will stay at the club despite ongoing speculation about his future.
The 31-year-old is said to have demanded £ 250,000 a week in wages to even consider signing a new deal – but a recent sneaky signal in a live Instagram video sent hysterical supporters.
An eagle-eyed user asked Aubameyang to blink at the camera to confirm if he would put paper on the pen, and the club captain seemed to exaggerate a wink before smiling wildly.
Arsenal star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang seems to have sneakily hinted that he would stay at the club
Attacker was asked to blink if he planned to sign a new agreement and duly cheekily responded
The former Borussia Dortmund leader has only one year left to execute his current contract in North London, and the tastes of Barcelona, Real Madrid, Juventus and Inter Milan have all been linked to a bold move.
He is currently earning around £ 200,000 a week, although his terms contain several add-ons. It has also been suggested that Aubameyang was aware that his next contract would likely be his last major contract, making him determined to benefit as much as possible financially.
But the uncertainty surrounding the rumored impasse seems to have been dispelled thanks to its naughty antics on social networks.
Aubameyang had driven Arsenal fans crazy during a live Instagram video with his brother Willy
The 31-year-old has less than a year on his contract and Mikel Arteta is determined to keep it
The exchange that made fans wild surfaced on Sunday evening on Twitter, and images were taken from Aubameyang’s live Instagram session with his brother Willy.
The story urged him: “Blink if you are a gunna sign. Aubameyang, in typical wisecrack style, responded in style to add more fuel to the fire.
A user believes that the new agreement is “essentially confirmed” after the fit leader dropped the index.
Another wrote: “It cannot be a coincidence that the man blinked like bait. “
And a third account added: ‘He’s completely teasing us …’
Arteta also issued a warning to the board of directors regarding the future of Aubameyang
Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta recently sent a powerful warning to the club’s hierarchy about the future of the skipper.
Having led his team to four consecutive wins, Arteta is desperate to continue boosting Arsenal’s fortune and seems to be aware that Aubameyang will prove crucial to his efforts.
He said, “If you ask me, we can’t be a team that has to sell its best player to try to bring in and improve our team, that’s for sure. “
Aubameyang scored 63 times in 102 games with the club, and his strike against Norwich also made him the fastest player to score 50 goals for Arsenal in the Premier League.
