Fight for Moukoko between Real Madrid and Barca. Real Madrid and Barcelona are competing for the Borussia Dortmund striker. Barcelona and Real Madrid are monitoring Youssoufa Moukoko‘s situation at Borussia Dortmund. The German international, who was born in Cameroon, has already left for the 2022 FIFA World Cup after being selected for manager Hansi Flick’s 26-man roster. When Germany plays Japan on November 23, the 18-year-old might make his tournament debut.

Moukoko is one of the most exciting young players in European football right now, and Barcelona and Real Madrid will be watching his contract situation closely. The last year of Moukoko’s contract at the Westfalenstadion has passed. In 22 appearances across tournaments this season, he has six goals and as many assists. Due to Erlin Haaland’s summer transfer to Manchester United, Moukoko has seen more action with Dortmund’s senior team.

He joined BVB in the summer of 2016 after switching from FC St. Pauli’s youth team. But Moukoko’s skills didn’t spread across the landscape of European football until this season. This summer, Barcelona acquired Robert Lewandowski from Bayern Munich while letting Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang go on the final day of the transfer window. Memphis Depay is also anticipated to leave Camp Nou in 2023, highlighting the necessity for a new center-forward for Barcelona.

At his age, Moukoko might not mind serving as a reserve striker for a European super club. He will also be aware that Lewandowski, 33, is nearing the end of his playing days. At Real Madrid, where Karim Benzema (34) has experienced numerous injuries, the situation is similar. He will not be playing for France in the 2022 FIFA World Cup due to a recent thigh injury. Additionally, Benzema’s contract is going to expire after two more seasons, thus manager Carlo Ancelotti will eventually need to consider a replacement.

Despite being linked to teams like Real Madrid and Barcelona, Moukoko is hesitant to make a snap decision on where he will play next. He recently responded, “I will make my decision at the correct time,” when asked about his future at Dortmund. I’m extremely content to be living in Dortmund, and I know Edin Terzi, the BVB manager, has faith in me. If I choose to remain in Dortmund or not, you will already be aware of it. Earlier this month, on November 16, Moukoko played 66 minutes for Germany’s senior team during his nation’s 1-0 friendly victory over Oman.
