Youssoufa Moukoko's contract extension at Borussia Dortmund is still dragging on. While Jürgen Klopp is trying to stretch out his fingers, Edin Terzic is still assuming the youngster will stay.
Youssoufa Moukoko celebrated with a big grin after scoring the final 5-0 in front of the home fans with his own goal on Saturday afternoon. What some wanted to see as a sign of the intended contract extension: His finger pointing to the BVB logo on his chest while enjoying the great cheering.
But the issue is still not over. As of now, Moukoko will leave Dortmund at the end of the season because his contract is expiring.
As a background for the waiting time, a rather violent family dispute is currently being mentioned. While the attacker's father accuses his advisor of greed and blames him for turning the youngster away from his family, he refuses to provide them with financial support. The problem for black and yellow: Moukoko will not be celebrating his 18th birthday for about a month. Until then, his parents would have to sign a new contract - but that's unlikely to happen.
Edin Terzic is unimpressed by the waiting game. He still assumes that his protégé will extend his contract and spend a year or two at BVB accordingly.
Terzic emphasized that Borussia gave him the opportunity to show and perform at "this level". When asked if he was still in good spirits that Moukoko would eventually be extended, the coach gave a short and clear "yes".
However, Dortmund and Terzic are by no means the only ones who would like to benefit from the qualities of the young striker. English Football Insider reports that Jürgen Klopp would like to bring him to Liverpool.
Accordingly, the Reds would have had scouts on site when they defeated Stuttgart, who wanted to get a more accurate picture of Moukoko.
However, Liverpool are not the only club considering a possible signing of the youngster. According to the report, FC Barcelona, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are also generally interested.
Although an extension at BVB seems more likely, you can only be sure in Dortmund once the new contract has been signed. After all, a talent like Moukoko doesn't come onto the market every day for a potentially free transfer.
