Stagnant negotiations: Manuel Akanji probably before BVB farewell

BVB is facing a major upheaval on the defensive. With Manuel Akanji, the signs are clearly pointing to separation.

As the “Ruhr newsAccording to reports, the negotiations between Borussia Dortmund and central defender Manuel Akanji have come to a standstill. According to this, the Swiss has already turned down an offer to extend the contract and BVB is not willing to improve it.

So the constellation is clear: Akanji is still tied to the black and yellow until 2023 and Dortmund would take the opportunity in the summer to take a decent fee for the central defender. According to the report, this is the “likely scenario”.

The talk is said to be around 30 million euros that interested parties would have to raise. Manchester United is repeatedly associated with the Swiss, who has made it clear in the past that he would like to play for the Red Devils one day.

Without Akanji: This is how BVB plans in central defence

With Niklas Süle, Akanji’s potential replacement comes free of charge from FC Bayern Munich. In addition, BVB is also associated with Nico Schlotterbeck from SC Freiburg. However, the 22-year-old is also said to be courted by FC Bayern and staying in Breisgau is not yet out of the question.

In Dortmund, Akanji would take the place of Mats Hummels. The “Ruhr Nachrichten” speculate that the 33-year-old could go into his last professional season and serve as a substitute.

The contract constellation of Dan-Axel Zagadou is delicate. The Frenchman, who has repeatedly struggled with injury problems, is only tied to BVB for the current second half of the season.

No final decision has been made yet, but Dortmund is basically interested in extending the contract with the 22-year-old on strongly performance-related terms. Borussia also have Soumaïla Coulibaly up their sleeves, who is being built up in the third division this season.
