Barcelona extended an olive branch to Aubameyang this summer, but in the end he chose to renew his contract with Arsenal. In an interview recently, he responded to this matter and explained why he refused Barcelona’s offer.
Aubameyang said: "I have received some offers, especially from Barcelona, but also from other clubs. But my first choice is to stay. There are two reasons. The first is because of coach Arteta. We talked a lot during the home isolation. We talked a few times at home and he persuaded me, especially about the planning of Arsenal."
“In addition, the second reason is the love I get from the club’s fans and all the club’s staff. Since I came here, I have been treated like a family by them. Since I am a member of this family, I will Will choose to stay, it's that simple."
