WATCH: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Scores Team Goal Against AC Milan

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang might be one of the most wanted men on the planet if transfer rumours are anything to go by, and quite frankly they obviously are, and he's proved why finishing off a great counterattack from Borussia Dortmund.

By now we are well aware that the summer is full of nothing but transfer rumours that contradict each other on such a regular basis that it's pretty hard to keep up with what the last thing said actually is.

When it comes to Aubameyang the big contradiction for the Gabonese forward's potential new home has been the location. There may not have been another rumour with as many clubs involved this summer.

The Dortmund forward has been linked with moves to PSG, Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea, Manchester United, China and AC Milan- it's just a surprise he's not been linked to Bayern Munich yet!

Today the Bundesliga side kicked off their pre-season fixtures with a game in the International Champions Cup against one of those side's. Milan, winning 2-1 and scoring a wonderful team goal on the counter:

At one point it looked like the former St Etienne forward was genuinely on the way back to Ligue 1 with a transfer fee of €70 million being close to agreed and the player reportedly already accepting a contract.

However the Parisiens transfer tactics changed when they replaced Patrick Kluivert as the club's director of football and Antero Henrique became sporting director, taking over the transfer direction for Unai Emery's side.

It actually looks like Dortmund will keep their striker this summer now with reports in Germany saying that they'd put a deadline on a potential move away from the club that interested parties had to meet their asking price.

German newspaper 'Kicker' reported today that the deadline was this morning with no clubs coming forward with the money.

Dortmund fans aren't going to be upset if that's the case.
