Barcelona still insist on signing Bernardo Silva even amid Frenkie de Jong’s reluctance to leave.
One of the ways to make the move possible would be the departure of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Mundo Deportivo’s reliable Roger Torello reports. His exit would help finance the move, with Barca getting rid of his wages.
Xavi trusts the striker, and Auba wants to continue at Camp Nou.
However, Chelsea will push hard for his move and are ready to offer him good personal terms. Thomas Tuchel, with whom Pierre-Emerick has a good relationship, could play a key role.
The 33-year-old will have to make a final decision soon, as Barca and Chelsea are scheduled to meet next week.
