Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang told Milan fans he’d “love to come back, but if they are sleeping, what can I do?”
The Gabon international grew up in the Rossoneri youth academy, but was sold for a minimal fee and found success in the Bundesliga.
New Milan directors Massimiliano Mirabelli and Marco Fassone have made no secret of the fact Aubameyang is one of their prime targets for the attack.
He was holding a livestream on Instagram when fans asked if he would return to Milan.
“I’d love to come back, but if they are sleeping, what can I do?” replied Aubameyang in Italian.
He then did an impression of the San Siro announcer after a goal.
“And with the Number 7….”
Other options include Andrea Belotti of Torino and Fiorentina’s Nikola Kalinic.
This is only the latest social media clue that Aubameyang would relish a return to Milan, as he also ‘liked’ a post noting he wanted to come, but the problem was the €80m price-tag placed on him by Borussia Dortmund.
