Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s future is complicated by FIFA rules stating a player can only play for two clubs in one season.
Former Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang only returned to London in September to join Chelsea, but his time at Stamford Bridge could soon be up.
The Gabon international has scored three goals in 16 games but has made just four Premier League appearances under Blues boss Graham Potter.
Chelsea have been active in the January transfer window, having already brought in Joao Felix, Andrey Santos, Benoit Badiashile and David Datro Fofana.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is eager to leave Chelsea and wants to return to Barcelona, according to Spanish newspaper Sport.
Aubameyang also reportedly had interest from Atlético Madrid, but FIFA rules state that a player can only be registered for a maximum of three clubs in a season, but only play for two.
Any move for the Gabon international, who played for the Blaugrana earlier this season, could hinge on Atletico’s interest in Barca’s Memphis Depay.
