The 32-year-old has put pen to paper on a contract until 2025, but there is the option for the two to part ways in 2023. His release clause is 100 million euros.

Minutes before Barcelona confirmed Aubameyang‘s arrival, the club were able to register him with LaLiga.

Aubameyang landed in Barcelona on Monday, January 31, and was officially released by Arsenal before midnight on transfer deadline day. He then passed his medical around 22:00 GMT and arrived at the club’s offices half an hour later.

Barcelona were in no hurry to register Aubameyang, as he’s joining the Catalan club on a free transfer and therefore they had more time to get everything in order. Finally, they completed the paperwork on Wednesday.

Although Aubameyang had not yet been registered nor announced by Barcelona, he trained under Xavi Hernandez‘s orders for the first time on Tuesday.

Significant pay cut

Given the fact that Ousmane Dembele did not leave Barcelona in the latter stages of the January transfer window, Aubameyang has only been able to be registered with LaLiga because he has taken a significant pay cut.

It is expected that his money will be backloaded, so next year he will receive a larger salary.
