Aubameyang: China talks were a disaster

Borussia Dortmund star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang insists he never took interest from China seriously, labelling the talks a "disaster".

The Gabon international was heavily linked with a move to the Chinese Super League (CSL) in the close-season, but ended up staying at Dortmund.

Aubameyang, 28, said the negotiations were unprofessional, insisting it never seemed serious.

"China, I didn't take it seriously, it was a lack of professionalism," he told RMC on Thursday.

"They delayed to send us a written offer, it was a disaster."

Instead, Aubameyang has made a tremendous start to the season for Dortmund, scoring nine goals in eight games in all competitions for the Bundesliga leaders.
