Borussia Dortmund star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang confirmed that he was negotiating with Milan and was "very interested in this project".
The striker was one of the main transfer goals of the Italian team, who made many purchases before the current season. Eventually, the price of 80 million euros proved to be an insurmountable obstacle for the Rossoneris.
"True, the representatives of Milan contacted me and offered me a deal," Aubameyang announced in an interview with RMC. "I was very interested in this project, but eventually there was no transfer for many reasons," he added.
The 28-year-old Gabonese began his football career at the academy in Milan in January 2007. After a few loans, including Dijon or Monaco, he was finally sold to Saint-Etienne in January 2012 for 1.8 million euros.
In the current season, Aubameyang has already scored nine goals in eight Borussia Dortmund matches.
