Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is unlikely to move to the Premier League as he favours a transfer to Real Madrid.
The Gabon forward, who has scored 30 goals in all competitions this season, was heavily linked with a switch to Arsenal in the January transfer window.
He was also recently cited as a target for Manchester United by the Manchester Evening News, who claim the Old Trafford club will compete with Real and Ligue 1 giants Paris St-Germain for his services.
But Aubameyang has told French newspaper L'Equipe that he sees his destiny at the Bernabeu because of a promise he made to his late grandfather.
"In 2014, just before the death of my grandfather, who was born in Avila 100 kilometres from Madrid, I gave him the promise to play one day for Real," Aubameyang said.
"It'll be complicated, but this (promise) is anchored to a corner of my heart."
