Borussia Dortmund star admits he wants to leave the club

The Spain worldwide has a release clause of around £45million and it's thought Dortmund are looking at him as a possible replacement for star striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who has suggested he could be moving this summer.

The 27-year-old has been at the Bundesliga club since joining from Saint-Etienne in 2013, but admitted he is now thinking about his next step despite his attachment to Dortmund.

Real Madrid have been eyeing a move for the Gabon global for quite some time now and with Madrid keen to offload Karim Benzema, having offered him to Chelsea and Arsenal, and with Cristiano Ronaldo's form dipping slowly, Aubameyang seems like the flawless player to take over. "I am fully considering a move away in the summer", he told RMC. But I always ask myself the question: if I want to reach the next level, do I have to go? The 27-year-old has a Dortmund contract until 2019, but a move to London could see him earn up to 13 million euros, while he now pockets nine million, claims the German daily. "I will take some time to reflect".

The Gabon global is contracted until 2020 and has 16 goals in 15 Bundesliga games this season.

"Everyone tells me about England, but that is not the league which excites me the most".

'Real Madrid is still a dream, but there has been too much noise'.

However, the financial packages on offer in the Premier League could prove to be extremely tempting and the lure of working with Pep Guardiola at Manchester City could also be too good to turn down.

The Gabonese star then said that Spain's La Liga remained the most attractive league in his eyes, albeit also leaving the door open for French football, calling the more competitive season in Ligue 1 "really good to see". "And there is not only Real in life, even if it's still a dream". "It is really pleasing to see", he said. This is my first language, it can attract.
