That’s exactly why his club side, Borussia Dortmund, is doing everything in their power to shrug off would-be buyers.

According to Dortmund chief executive officer Hans-Joachim Watzke, the team will only take offers for their prized striker in the realm of €100 or €120 million.

Watzke told Kicker:

“It was no coincidence we renewed his contract until 2020,” Watzke said. “It is our wish that he will score many goals for Borussia Dortmund in the future.

“If someday there really arrives an offer of €100 or €120 million for him, we will discuss it. But we want to keep him above 2020.”

The club agreed to a five-year extension with the striker back in July 2015, but with teams like Real Madrid swarming, Dortmund is surely wary of a potential exit this summer.

Aubameyang, 26, has tallied 36 goals and seven assists across all competitions during the 2015-16 season. Dortmund currently sits second on the German Bundesliga table, five points off the pace set by Bayern Munich.

With Mats Hummels, Ilkay Gundogan and Marco Reus also linked with moves away from Westfalenstadion, Dortmund must work extremely hard this offseason to keep its core group of players in Germany.
