Paris Saint-Germain tried and failed to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the summer, the Borussia Dortmund striker has confirmed.
The prolific 27-year-old Gabon international, who scored 25 Bundesliga goals last term, had been heavily linked with a move to one of European football's top clubs during the transfer window.
Aubameyang has now admitted that there was a concrete approach from the French Ligue 1 champions, but he revealed they made a mess of trying to strike a deal.
The former Dijon, Lille, Monaco and St Etienne hitman told RMC Sport: "PSG were told to go through my father [who is also Aubameyang's agent].
"But instead they bypassed him and spoke directly to the club who, inevitably, closed the door.
"The figure that PSG were willing to pay was far lower than Dortmund expected, so talks came to a stop quickly."
