Youssoufa Moukoko has agreed to sign a new contract at Borussia Dortmund which will make him one of the highest paid players at the club.
The 18-year-old’s future has been up in the air for quite some time, with his current deal at Dortmund set to expire at the end of the season.
The Bundesliga giants have held talks with Moukok over a new contract but have been unable to agree terms with the teenager as his representatives have sought to make him one of the club’s highest-paid players.
Barcelona, Chelsea and Newcastle have all been monitoring his situation – the latter two have even made offers – in the hope of signing him on a free transfer, and 90 Minutes revealed last week that Dortmund would make one final offer to Moukoka in the hope that he will commit his future club.
Sources have now confirmed that within 90 minutes, Moukoko has accepted this latest proposal, which will see her earn around €10 million a year including fees and bonuses.
Speaking to German outlet Kicker, sporting director Sebastian Kehl confirmed that Moukoko had received an attractive financial package, saying: “We have put together a very attractive offer that gives him a lot of room to develop. That should lead to a decision.” He has to work it out with his environment and his advisor.
“Youssoufa can now accept this offer and commit to Borussia Dortmund – or we will go our separate ways. I wish he would choose us because he is not at the end of his development and I see potential in him. But there are limits for us as a club . And we’ve shown those limits. Now it’s up to him to confess in time.”
Moukoko became the youngest player to represent Germany at the World Cup at this winter’s tournament in Qatar, while he has six goals in 22 games for Dortmund this season.
