On the official BVB website, Youssoufa Moukoko explained why he finally chose to extend his contract with his training club. The player feels good about it: “It’s no secret that I feel good at BVB. I played in the youth teams, took my first steps in professional football here and now I’m ready to take the next step in my development with the club. I feel the confidence of the technical staff and I have here an environment in which I can flourish perfectly. Of course I was honored by the interest from other clubs, but in the end it was a decision of the heart. The fans have always supported me and I want to give something back to them and to the club.”he told Borussia Dortmund media.

A controversy related to his age

The German international (2 selections) made an impression during the first part of the season, with his 6 goals and 4 assists in 14 appearances in the Bundesliga. In recent weeks, his name has been associated with many clubs, including Newcastle, Chelsea, Barça, Manchester United or PSG. The player finally did not give in to their sirens, preferring to bet on continuity.

It must be said that he has been at the center of a controversy in recent days in Germany. It concerned the age of the player. A birth certificate from 2000 has been leaked: if the document is true, the attacker could be 22, rather than 18. An element that could change a lot of things.

Another coveted element of the BVB, Jude Bellingham should leave him well, next summer. The player is notably on the shelves of Real Madrid and Liverpool. His transfer could reach 150 million euros.
