Borussia Dortmund is known for discovering young talents early on and then later developing them into absolute top stars. Ousmane Dembele, Jadon Sancho and Youssoufa Moukoko are just three examples.
Due to the outstanding path that the latter has taken, those responsible at Borussia Dortmund now apparently want to sign the next top young talent. We’re talking about Saido Balde.
Borussia Dortmund wants top talent and is getting new competition
As reported by “Bild”, Borussia Dortmund should still be one of the clubs that are very interested in Saido Bale from Hamburger SV. The 14-year-old is also being watched by Benfica Lisbon and Paris St. Germain. Now the clubs should get competition. With AC Milan, another top club is said to have put out feelers to the right wing.
The 14-year-old is currently having a strong season in the U17 Bundesliga with Hamburg and has already scored three goals and three assists in eleven games. According to the current status, the attacking player’s contract will expire in the summer of 2024. According to the “image”, those responsible for the second division want to extend the working paper prematurely. Even sports director Jonas Boldt is said to be involved.
Borussia Dortmund: Is the next top talent coming soon?
The newspaper does not mention how high the chances are that Balde will leave his club prematurely and then switch to BVB. However, if those responsible at Borussia are really interested in the attacking player, they could convince the 14-year-old with Youssoufa Moukoko. The storm jewel of Dortmund switched to BVB in 2016 at the age of eleven, went through all the youth teams there and has now even earned a place in the German World Cup squad. They could also show Balde a similar path.
Because of her experience with young talents, the runner-up would have an ace up his sleeve, even if the competition for Balde is fierce. The future will show whether the right winger will soon appear in the black and yellow jersey.
