Youssoufa Moukoko has agreed to sign a new contract at Borussia Dortmund which will make him one of the highest paid players at the club, 90min understands.
The 18-year-old’s future has been up in the air for a considerable amount of time, with his current Dortmund deal due to expire at the end of the season.
The Bundesliga giants had been in negotiations with Moukoko over a new deal but had been unable to agree terms with the teenager as his representatives sought to make him one of the club’s highest earners.
Barcelona, Chelsea and Newcastle had all been monitoring his situation – the latter two even made offers – in the hope they could prise him away on a free transfer and 90min revealed last week Dortmund had put forward one final offer to Moukoko in the hope he’d commit his future to the club.
Sources have now confirmed to 90min Moukoko has accepted that latest proposal, which will see earn around €10m a year including fees and bonuses.

Sporting director Sebastian Kehl confirmed in an interview with German outlet Kicker that an attractive financial package had been put to Moukoko, saying: “We have put together a very attractive offer that gives him a lot of room for development. That should lead to a decision. He has to make it with his environment and his advisor.
“Youssoufa can now accept this offer and commit to Borussia Dortmund – or we will go our separate ways. I would like him to choose us because he is not yet at the end of his development and I see potential in him. But there are limits for us as a club. And we have shown these limits. Now it’s up to him to confess in a timely manner.”
Moukoko became the youngest player to represent Germany at a World Cup during this winter’s tournament in Qatar, while he has six goals to his name from 22 Dortmund appearances this season.
Man Utd close to signing Marcel Sabitzer on loan from Bayern Munich
Man Utd are close to signing Marcel Sabitzer from Bayern Munich on a loan deal until the end of the season, 90min has learned.
United have moved for Sabitzer on transfer deadline day following the news that Christian Eriksen will be out until late April or early May with an ankle injury sustained in the FA Cup win over Reading on Saturday.
The Dane’s injury leaves United light in the midfield department, with Donny van de Beek also out for the remainder of the season with an injury of his own.
Sabitzer, 28, boarded a flight to Manchester from Munich on Tuesday evening after an agreement of a straight loan deal was largely fleshed out between the two clubs, and the player has also agreed personal terms. 90min reported earlier in the day that Sabitzer was “very excited” about the potential move to Old Trafford.
The club were not planning to move for a new player prior to the deadline, though the severity of Eriksen’s injury has convinced Erik ten Hag to push for United to act, as they chase a place in the Premier League’s top four and attempt to win their first trophy since 2017. They are currently competing on four fronts.
United have until 11pm GMT to push through the transfer before the deadline, though could request a short extension from the Premier League to complete the deal if necessary.

Man Utd in talks to sign Bayern Munich midfielder on deadline day
Manchester United have open talks with Bayern Munich over a potential deadline day loan move for Marcel Sabitzer, 90min understands.
The Red Devils have entered the market late due to Christian Eriksen’s ankle problem – an injury which will mean the first-choice midfielder will be out of action until May.
Due to said injury, United have had to change tact on deadline day and attempt to make a last minute signing. And that signing could be set to be Austrian star Sabitzer from Bayern.

Having earlier been offered the player, 90min can report that talks are underway between Sabizter’s representatives and the Red Devils over a potential loan deal until the end of the current season.
Sabitzer is said to be ‘very excited’ about the potential move to Old Trafford.
That is despite his agent, Roger Wittmann, recently suggesting to German publication Bild that the midfielder was happy at Bayern: “Marcel feels comfortable with Bayern and has signed a five-year contract. To date, neither the club nor we have claimed anything else.”
United will have until 11pm (GMT) to finalise a deal to sign Sabitzer, who previously spent seven years at RB Leipzig – including one of those on loan at Red Bull Salzburg.
