Chelsea and Newcastle transfer blow as ‘Youssoufa Moukoko ends Dortmund contract stand-off by signing three-year deal’

, Chelsea and Newcastle transfer blow as ‘Youssoufa Moukoko ends Dortmund contract stand-off by signing three-year deal’

CHELSEA and Newcastle target Youssoufa Moukoko has decided to sign a new contract at Borussia Dortmund, according to reports.

The wonderkid striker’s current deal is set to expire at the end of this season.

Youssoufa Moukoko has decided to stay at Borussia Dortmund

Moukoko and BVB have been in a stand-off, with the 18-year-old receiving plenty of interest from the Prem.

But according to Bild, he has opted to pen a three-year extension with Dortmund.

They add that the deal will see him pocket around £100,000 a week.

Moukoko could have earned far more had he moved to England.

It’s claimed that, had he run down his contract at Dortmund, he could have pocketed around £170k a week with Chelsea or Newcastle.

And reports even add that he could have been awarded an eye-watering signing on fee worth north of £26million.

Ultimately, Moukoko and his team decided that his development would be best served by staying at Dortmund.

He has made 14 Bundesliga appearances this season, scoring six times in the German top flight.

The 5ft 10in forward has also gained Champions League experience with BVB.

His form during the opening months of this season earned him a place in Germany’s 26-man World Cup squad.

And he was recently warned against moving by German legend Lothar Matthaus.

He told Sky in Germany: “If Moukoko is all about the money, I might recommend him to join Ronaldo in Saudi Arabia.

“But if he wants to further expand his still young and very promising career and wants to become a great footballer, then there is no better place for him to start than with Borussia Dortmund.

“There’s nothing he can’t get there. Fantastic fans, a healthy club, bosses and coaches who trust him and certainly a decent salary.

“What does he want after a few good months in the Bundesliga at Chelsea, Newcastle or anywhere else abroad at the age of 18?

“The competition is tough there. The clubs, fans and everyone else won’t have nearly as much patience or attention for him.

“If he doesn’t score in three games there, he’s on the bench. The competition is huge and the country and people are strange at first.

“I think it would be a mistake if he left BVB for the money now.”

Dortmund have lost wonderkids Erling Haaland and Jadon Sancho in recent summers, while Jude Bellingham is being heavily linked with an exit.
