Youssoufa Moukoko agrees to sign new Borussia Dortmund contract.
According to reports, Youssoufa Moukoko has decided to sign a new deal with Borussia Dortmund, making him one of the highest-paid players in the team.
The 18-year-future old’s has been uncertain for a while because his current Dortmund contract is set to expire at the end of the current campaign.
The Bundesliga heavyweights and Moukoko had been negotiating a new contract, but they had been unable to come to terms because Moukoko’s representation wanted to make him one of the club’s biggest earners.
In the hopes of luring him away on a free transfer, Barcelona, Chelsea, and Newcastle had all kept an eye on his position. As reported last week, Dortmund had given Moukoko one final offer in the hopes that he would commit his future to the club.
Sources have now confirmed that Moukoko has accepted the latest proposal, which will see him earn around €10m a year including fees and bonuses.

Sporting director Sebastian Kehl confirmed in an interview with German outlet Kicker that an attractive financial package had been put to Moukoko, saying: “We have put together a very attractive offer that gives him a lot of room for development. That should lead to a decision. He has to make it 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 would like him to choose us because he is not yet at the end of his development and I see potential in him. But there are limits for us as a club. And we have shown these limits. Now it’s up to him to confess in a timely manner.”
In this winter’s tournament in Qatar, Moukoko made history by becoming the youngest player to represent Germany at the World Cup. This season, he has made 22 appearances for Dortmund and scored six goals.
