Youssoufa Moukoko will join Manchester United for £6 million a year, and he wants to.
The Times says that Manchester United wants to buy Youssoufa Moukoko, a young player for Borussia Dortmund who has a lot of potential.
Moukoko is only 18 years old, but he has already scored 141 goals in 88 games for Borussia Dortmund’s lower leagues. United is interested in bringing Moukoko on board.
If United wants to beat the competition, there are a few things that stand in the way of a possible deal for Moukoko, who is in high demand.
Moukoko is from Cameroon but plays for Germany right now. He made his debut for the German national team right before the World Cup.
Youssoufa Moukoko contract situation and demands
The Times has reported that Moukoko’s contract will end in June 2023. Because of this, Dortmund is trying hard to get him to sign a new contract, but so far they haven’t been able to.
Their last offer of £4.4 million per year was turned down, and rumors say that the striker wants any team that wants to sign him to pay him £6 million per year.
Erling Haaland has been compared to Moukoko, and when Moukoko was 16 and made his Bundesliga debut, he came on as a substitute for Erling Haaland.
Youssoufa Moukoko goal record
Moukoko has made a smooth move from youth football to senior football, which adds to his already impressive list of accomplishments.
In 14 Bundesliga games so far this season, Moukoko has scored six goals and set up four others. He has scored 11 goals for Dortmund’s main team as a whole.
He is the youngest player in Bundesliga history to reach 10 points.
He played for Germany at the under-21 level and scored six goals in five games for the team.
What they say
Erling Haaland said this about Moukoko when he was in Dortmund’s academy: “Moukoko is much better than I was at his age. I’ve never seen a 15-year-old who was so good.”
Hansi Flick, the coach of Germany, added, “Youssoufa is just getting better and better. He is fast, energetic, and a good finisher.”
Norwich City right-back Max Aarons has been linked with a move to Manchester United ahead of January
Last month, there were rumors that Manchester United was interested in Norwich City’s right back Aarons, who is 22 years old.
The English player was once linked to a move to Old Trafford, but he decided to stay at Norwich City, where he is now in his fifth full season on the first team.
Since the first time he was linked to Manchester United, no one has said anything about him.
But it’s interesting to hear that Erik ten Hag, the manager of Manchester United, wants to get a right-back in January, even if that depends on whether or not the team can trade Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
Several right-backs have been mentioned as possible transfers to Old Trafford in January. Recently, TEAMtalk said that Aarons is one of their targets, which suggests that the Red Devils are still interested in the Englishman.
Wan-Bissaka, on the other hand, has recently been linked to West Ham, and ExWHUemploye, a reliable Hammers source, has confirmed that the club is interested in the United player.
So, Aarons’ possible move to Old Trafford is looking more likely. Ten Hag probably has a few players in mind, but Aarons will definitely be one of them.
Norwich City might not want to sell because they want to finish in the top two of the Championship. But after keeping Aarons around through so many moves, it might be time to let him go.
