Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's prospective loan move to Barcelona has collapsed over figures after both Arsenal and the Spanish giants were surprised that the striker jetted to Spain on Monday.
Barca finance directors held discussions this morning about how to fit Aubameyang into their salary cap - as the Gabon forward arrived in Catalonia on Monday.
In a photo circulating on social media on transfer deadline day, the 32-year-old was already in Barcelona posing for photos - yet reports in Spain say Barca weren't expecting Aubameyang to show up in Spain and nor were Arsenal, bringing back memories of Peter Odemwingie's infamous QPR transfer saga in 2013.
The parallels are now distinctly similar with Aubameyang in Spain despite a move not being agreed, and now faces an awkward return to London with talks between the two clubs having collapsed over salary figures.
