With a proper performance at the 1-1 draw in Cologne, Manuel Akanji has returned to the start of the BVB last Sunday (Sport.de Note.de Note Note 2.5). According to reports, it was already one of the last appearances in the black-yellow jersey for the Swiss, who will leave Borussia Dortmund probably after the ongoing season.
The signs are at least clear at Manuel Akanji. The well-informed “Ruhr news” most recently announced that the chances of BVB, Akanji can hold beyond summer, “tend to zero”.
The 26-year-old has the offer of Dortmunder Borussia to extend his contract in the club again in the long term, until recently. A renewed, again improved offer of BVB there will no longer be.
According to the newspaper report, the spread of the Bundesliga was ready to pay Akanji to pay eight million euros per year in the future.
For the Swiss national player who had never made a secret from his premier league dreams, significantly too little to set his signature under the new working paper.
BVB farewell tour over seven game days for Akanji
One year before accumulating the existing contract, the signs are thus clearly on separation. Borussia Dortmund is well hoping for transfer revenue of up to 30 million euros, should find a resirable customer for the center-back in the upcoming period.
As a favorite on a summer transfer, up to last Manchester United was considered. The English record champion has been associated with Akanji for weeks, aims to reinforce itself in his back to the new season.
Until then, Akanji from Dortmunder is at least helping to consolidate the second place in the table before and continue to exert pressure on leader FC Bayern. Seven game days long will take the supposed farewell tour of the defensive player in the BVB jersey.
