“Not again,” BVB fans will think. Borussia Dortmund threatens trouble. The reason is called Youssoufa Moukoko. He is on the field for the German national team in Qatar these days.
In the background, the tug-of-war over the future of Youssoufa Moukoko has fully flared up. His contract expires in the summer. Dortmund really wants to keep him. In order to achieve that, one must probably conjure up a well-known theater.
Youssoufa Moukoko gambles high
During his youth, the striker was hailed as a mega gem. Moukoko broke all records in BVB’s youth teams. After his leap to the pros, things got stuck at first. But this season, he threw it all away.
After Sebastien Haller’s bad cancer and the disappointing performances of Anthony Modeste, the 18-year-old is number 1 in attack. And as such, he gambles in the current negotiations.
Is BVB going for it?
He can always allow himself. If it doesn’t work out with Borussia Dortmund, numerous other clubs are dying for Moukoko. For staying in the Ruhr area, he apparently makes clear demands that the Spanish newspaper “Sport” now wants to know.
Accordingly, the first step is to increase the annual salary to seven million euros. That would get him into the higher-earning circles of the team. On the other hand, the jewel should also demand an exit clause, as Erling Haaland already had.
Youssoufa Moukoko emulates Haaland
The Norwegian was able to leave the black and yellow in the summer for 60 million euros. Compared to today’s market prices, it’s a bargain for its performance. The striker also kept his club in the dark about his future plans for months. Thanks to the clause, Haaland was in full control.

If the report from Spain is to be believed, Youssoufa Moukoko now also wants such a clause. Nothing is known about the height. One thing is clear: if Borussia Dortmund agrees to this, there will be a major contract dispute again in the future.
