Real Madrid and Barcelona target has made a decision on his future amid January move rumours.
Youssoufa Moukoko has been a transfer target for a number of elite clubs in Europe, including Real Madrid and Barcelona, as his Borussia Dortmund contract expires at the conclusion of the current season.
The attacker, who recently turned 18 years old, has had a strong start to the 2022–23 season, scoring six goals and dishing out assists in each of 22 games across all competitions.
Due to his performance, Moukoko has been selected for the Germany national team for the ongoing FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar.
Real Madrid is reportedly one of the clubs interested in the services of the youthful prodigy, according to discussions regarding his future that have been going on for a time.
At the Santiago Bernabeu, Los Blancos lack a natural replacement for Karim Benzema as the center forward, and they may decide to invest in a young forward next summer with Moukoko emerging as a transfer target.
Barcelona, a bitter rival of Real Madrid, is also considering the young striker as a potential Robert Lewandowski backup option.
In a recent media interview, the 18-year-old stated that he is quite at ease with Borussia Dortmund and might decide to remain at Signal Iduna Park after the current season.
“I love the club and I feel so at home at BVB. I would adore to remain at Borussia Dortmund. It’s crucial for me to know what sort of project and viewpoint the club will provide for me, Moukoko told RND, according to Fabrizio Romano.
Although Moukoko is adamant that he wants to stay at Dortmund, his rumored salary demands of €7 million year may still prove to be a roadblock, opening the door for other interested parties like Real Madrid and Barcelona to make a move.
The young man is presently competing in the World Cup and will be focused on supporting Germany following their opening-game loss to Japan. As for his future, things might move faster after the Qatar tournament is over.
