CHELSEA look on track to land Borussia Dortmund superstar Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the January transfer window as they look to bolster their attacking ranks.
But in Auba, the Blues would be getting much more than just a footballer.
In fact, Gabonese star Aubameyang is one of the latest world stars to develop themselves as a “brand” – both on and off the football pitch.
From luxury watches and custom threads, to trips on private jets and even the “Batmobile”, the Dortmund forward is becoming the next Cristiano Ronaldo or Neymar, in many ways.
Success on the pitch is often mirrored by equal affluence off it… and we don’t just mean Aubameyang’s car.
The Gabon international’s motor of choice is a completely customised Lamborghini, complete with ultra-shiny, metallic paint-work, the signature “A” on the bonnet.
The Murcielago has all the bells and whistles and would have set the star back a whopping £150,000.
The lettering on the bonnet of the vehicle is equally flash – as the “A” merged with a lightning bolt is meant to be a symbol… and hardly a modest one at that.
That trademark letter in fact is meant to show off just how fast Aubameyang is – as he is said to be quicker over 30metres than the world’s fastest man – Usain Bolt.
Many consider their car to be their pride and joy, but in Aubameyang’s case that truly is accurate.
Earlier this year he celebrated his birthday cake with a hand-made cake in the shape of the Lambo – along with the words “#Lambocake” and “#Batman”.
The whole “Batman” – and therefore “Batmobile” – craze came to light after Auba donned a Batman mask to celebrate a goal alongside “his Robin”, Marco Reus, in 2015.
While it was meant as “a bit of fun” according to the dynamic duo themselves, the Batman fad appears to have caught on, with Aubameyang even calling his luxury Lamborghini the “Batmobile”.
But’s it’s not just his car that demonstrates Aubameyang’s love of all things decadent.
