Marseille is all set to complete the signing of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from the Blues

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang can breathe a sigh of relief. The transfer process to Marseille was not complicated by the Pensioners, who were willing to let him go for free. Since the 2022/2023 season ended, Aubameyang and his agent have been diligently looking for a new club, as his name will not be included in Chelsea's scheme next season. The process of finding a new club was difficult at first. There are hardly any European clubs who want to ask for her hand and there are only Saudi Arabian clubs who do. Meanwhile, Aubameyang emphasized that he only wanted to stay in Europe. Fortunately, Les Phocéens came at the right time when he had no other options.

The problem at that time was only one, Aubameyang, who is still under contract at Chelsea until 2024, must be paid a transfer fee. Marseille refused to make payment. This French club wants to get Aubameyang for free. The Telegraph report stated that the Blues finally agreed to release the 34-year-old player for free to Marseille by terminating his contract.

Previously, Aubameyang had agreed to the contract offered by Marseille. The duration of the contract is three years. The Gabon national team player also received a significant cut in his salary. Ligue 1 side has communicated that they cannot afford Aubameyang's salary, who is currently at Chelsea. After all the agreements have been reached, the next Aubameyang transfer process is just waiting for the official release. Aubameyang is the 14th player to leave Chelsea in the summer of 2023. In other words, Chelsea's clearance mission was a success. Aubameyang is not the last player to leave. Romelu Lukaku and Hakim Ziyech are the next two names to leave Stamford Bridge soon.
