Aubameyang: I could leave Dortmund, but I'd never join Bayern

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang admits he could leave Borussia Dortmund at the end of the season but has ruled out Bayern Munich as a potential destination.

Aubameyang has long been linked with a move away from Signal Iduna Park, with Real Madrid and Manchester City thought to be among his admirers.

The Gabon captain "100 per cent" ruled out a January switch but concedes his future is far from clear.

"No one can predict the future," he told Fussball Bild. "The only thing for sure is that I'm currently with Dortmund and I love it there.

"But I cannot say that I'll stay for another two, five or 10 years. It is possible that in June a club comes to an agreement with Dortmund.

"At the moment I really don't think about it. I focus only on the work with my team-mates with Dortmund and Gabon."

The availability of one of the world's top strikers - Aubameyang has scored 20 goals in 22 appearances in all competitions this season - could pique the interest of Bundesliga leaders Bayern.

However, Aubameyang says a move to Dortmund's rivals is out of the question, adding: "Never would I switch to Bayern."

Aubameyang is currently captaining Gabon on home soil at the Africa Cup of Nations, scoring in each of their opening two 1-1 draws against Guinea-Bissau and Burkina Faso.
