CHELSEA look on observe to land Borussia Dortmund celebrity Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang within the January switch window as they appear to bolster their attacking ranks.
However in Auba, the Blues could be getting way more than only a footballer.
In actual fact, Gabonese star Aubameyang is without doubt one of the newest world stars to develop themselves as a “model” – each on and off the soccer pitch.
From luxurious watches and customized threads, to journeys on non-public jets and even the “Batmobile”, the Dortmund ahead is turning into the subsequent Cristiano Ronaldo or Neymar, in some ways.
Success on the pitch is commonly mirrored by equal affluence off it… and we do not simply imply Aubameyang’s automotive.
The Gabon worldwide’s motor of alternative is a very customised Lamborghini, full with ultra-shiny, metallic paint-work, the signature “A” on the bonnet.
The Murcielago has all of the bells and whistles and would have set the star again a whopping £150,000.
The lettering on the bonnet of the automobile is equally flash – because the “A” merged with a lightning bolt is supposed to be an emblem… and hardly a modest one at that.
That trademark letter the truth is is supposed to point out off simply how briskly Aubameyang is – as he’s mentioned to be faster over 30metres than the world’s quickest man – Usain Bolt.
Many think about their automotive to be their satisfaction and pleasure, however in Aubameyang’s case that actually is correct.
Earlier this 12 months he celebrated his birthday cake with a hand-made cake within the form of the Lambo – together with the phrases “#Lambocake” and “#Batman”.
The entire “Batman” – and due to this fact “Batmobile” – craze got here to mild after Auba donned a Batman masks to have a good time a objective alongside “his Robin”, Marco Reus, in 2015.
Whereas it was meant as “a little bit of enjoyable” in accordance with the dynamic duo themselves, the Batman fad seems to have caught on, with Aubameyang even calling his luxurious Lamborghini the “Batmobile”.
However’s it is not simply his automotive that demonstrates Aubameyang’s love of all issues decadent.
The could-be Chelsea star has nicely over 6million followers on his Instagram account – and definitely is not shy about exhibiting off his way of life to his followers.
In addition to fixed journeys on non-public jets, seemingly commonplace in immediately’s sport, Auba seems to have a watch for jewelry.
In addition to his gold rings, fancy watches and a customized iPad – the celebrity even owns gem-encrusted trainers from Nike, one in every of his sponsors.
When sharing that pair of kicks to the world, he did so posed on a runway in entrance of a non-public jet… a far cry from being shuffled right into a packed financial system seat sporting battered trainers.
It is nothing new for Aubameyang both… he as soon as confirmed off a pair of inexperienced soccer boots made by Swarovski – positively not match for the soccer pitch in 2012 whereas at Saint-Etienne.
Fabricated from round 5,000 crystals and costing £2,500 the Nike Mercurials definitely brought on a stir on social media.
His vital different is hardly a shrinking violet both – proving as soon as and for all good issues are available pairs.
Girlfriend Alysha Behague has a string of equally flashy snaps on her social media accounts, together with being sprawled throughout a shocking crimson Ferrari and mendacity on a yacht with the soccer star.
The pair have two kids collectively too, each boys – and they usually clearly don’t have any situation in imparting their lavish way of life on them.
In a single Instagram picture, Aubameyang and one in every of his children – Curtys – are enjoying PlayStation… with golden controllers.
With Chelsea struggling for depth of their attacking ranks, relying closely on Alvaro Morata with Diego Costa all-but gone, Auba may very well be getting ready to bringing his flashy way of life to West London.
He’ll definitely slot in across the likes of Mayfair, however with 17 objectives to his identify already this season, Aubameyang – and his playthings – will not come low cost.
