The Catalans wanted to bring in the young forward in the summer
Youssoufa Moukoko has renewed his Borussia Dortmund deal until 2026 to keep growing with the German club, but hopes one day he can play for Barca. The player was negotiating with the Catalans but in the end preferred to prioritise getting more minutes. Per Sport1 in Germany, his agents tried to add a lower release clause for Barca into this deal but Dortmund vetoed it.
Moukoko has never hidden his like of Barca and that's why he was speaking with the Catalans, having made his World Cup debut at 19.
Barca were willing to sign him in January with a small fee for Dortmund or the summer, but Moukoko decided to keep growing in Germany as he would not be an instant starter at Barca.
His intention is to come one day to the Catalan club. He did not look at Premier League offers despite interest from United and Chelsea, who made proposals.
