Borussia Dortmund give Youssoufa Moukoko a contract ultimatum
The Dortmund youngster has until the end of the week to decide on his future.
Borussia Dortmund have stated thatYoussoufa Moukoko
has until “this week” to accept Dortmund’s deal for a contract extension. His current deal runs out at the end of the season and Dortmund claim that they have a "very attractive offer" for a renewal.
Dortmund Sporting director Sebastian Kehl told the player and his agent that Moukoko has to sign an extension so he can "devote himself entirely to the sporting challenges" before the restart of the Bundesliga.
"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 huge 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 decide.
“Youssoufa and his advisors know that we are expecting a decision this week because we want to have this clarified before the first game back [after the World Cup break] so that the boy can devote himself entirely to the sporting challenges."
Bundesliga’s youngest player ever has already scored 6 goals in 8 starts this season but Kehl believes he can get even better.
"Youssoufa is a great boy,"
"He's been with us for almost seven years, we trained and developed him. He became a professional and a national player with us. He received an incredible amount of support from us and worked hard to achieve success himself."
Kehl went on to talk about Hummels andReus
who are both out of contract by the end of the season, saying:
"From the conversations with both of them I can say that we are very relaxed about the situation. have already made public statements about this in the past few weeks. Mats has decided that he wants to wait and see how things develop for him. He said that publicly himself.
"Of course the players are concerned about their future. That's normal. I'm convinced that we'll find a way to progress together in talks."
