AC Milan sporting director Massimiliano Mirabelli has revealed that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could not secure his return to San Siro as Borussia Dortmund were not keen on his sale.
The Rossoneri spent over €230 million on 11 players over the summer with most of their business done prior to the new season.
Aubameyang had been keen on making a return to the Rossoneri, where he began his professional career, but Borussia Dortmund took him off the transfer market accusing the San Siro outfit of showing a lack of respect.
Speaking in a Facebook live session on the club’s official page, Mirabelli confirmed that the Gabon international had wanted to return to the Rossoneri, but Borussia Dortmund ‘struggled to allow him to leave’, he said: “He’s a great player and he wanted to come to Milan, but there are some weddings which you just can’t arrange. Dortmund struggled to allow him to leave and that is what happened, but he is still a great player.” » ( Read more of AC Milan chief admits Borussia Dortmund struggled to let Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang leave… )
