Speaking of young talent leaving the Bundesliga, Borussia Dortmund and striker Youssoufa Moukoko seem to be far apart on reaching an agreement on a new contract. The 18-year-old German international — who was selected for Hansi Flick’s 26-man squad at this year’s Men’s World Cup — sees his deal expire next June and could be poised to leave BVB on a free.
