Borussia Dortmund are “totally confident” striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will remain at the club.
The two clubs play each other in the International Champions Cup in China on Thursday, but the 27-year-old will not feature as he has flown home to be with his pregnant wife.
“Right now he is our player, he stays our player,” said coach Thomas Tuchel.
“I am totally confident [he will stay]. He is a huge personality for us. Right now, I would say he stays but I can’t predict the future.”
The Gabon international scored 25 league goals for Dortmund last season.
