Chelsea on the verge of signing Pierre Emerick Aubameyang from Barcelona.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has broken his silence after he
was assaulted during a violent robbery at his home in
Barcelona, leaving him with a broken jaw.
Spanish newspaper El Pais reported that at least four men
climbed into his garden and threatened him with firearms and
Aubameyang was assaulted and intimidated by the men in
front of his wife, Alysha Behague, with the criminals managing
to open a safe inside the house and steal several jewels.
Several witnesses claim that the thieves fled in a white Audi
‘Hey guys, thanks a lot for all the messages,’ former Arsenal
captain Aubameyang posted on Instagram.
‘On Sunday night, some violent cowards broke into our home
and threatened my family and my children, just to steal some
‘They injured my jaw but I will recover in no time, and thank
God no one else was physically harmed.
‘The feeling that we are no longer safe in our own home is
hard to understand and describe, but as a family, we will
overcome this and stronger than ever.
‘Thanks for all the support, it really means a lot to us. Auba.’
Aubameyang has been living in Barcelona since February after
joining the Spanish club on a free transfer from the Gunners.
The 33-year-old has been in talks with a return to London this
summer with Chelsea keen on signing the Barcelona forward .
Earlier this month, Barcelona striker Robert Lewandowski had
his £59,000 watch stolen outside the club’s training ground
whilst he signed autographs for supporters.
Last year, Barcelona’s 19-year-old winger Ansu Fati had his
house broken into while he watched the team play at Camp
Some of the player’s family were still in the house while the
thieves broke in and stole money, jewellery and watches.
In 2018, the house owned by Barcelona left-back Jordi Alba
was also targeted by thieves, who entered the property whilst
his family were inside.
