Due to his contract, which in the summer of 2023, the future of defender Manuel Akanji at Borussia Dortmund is still unclear. Now details are penetrated, which depends on an extension of the BVB with the Swiss.
As the “million euross picture” reports, the central defender had annoyed the responsible persons of the territory club with his salary receivables.
According to the leaf, Akanji calls for an increase in its references to ten million euros per playing time in the course of a renewal, which coincides a doubling of its current salary.
An offer of Dortmund with an annual salary of eight million euros plus bonus payments has recently rejected the Swiss Sosse.
Akanji was in this playing time in a shaky BVB defense one of the more stable actors – although he was also a few really bad games as well as the Rangers in the Europa League. In principle, in the club leadership, there is still interest to extend the contract with the defensive player up to at least 2026, so the sheet.
However, that the right foot demands such a severe salary increase ensures incomprehension. With ten million euros a year, he was almost at a level with Star New Shop Niklas Süle, which is supposed to emit around twelve million.
BVB Icon Kohler: “He’s well served”
The “million euross picture” writes, using the example of Akanji you realize that BVB players themselves overestimate themselves. The defense partner of Mats Hummels is therefore the “outrageous BVB profi”.
Also club icon Jürgen Kohler expressed incomprehension for the demands: “He is a good player, but no top defender in Europe. I find if Dortmund makes him an offer over eight million, he is well served. More he has with his Performance so far not justified, “quotes the leaf the former defender.
Clare that the BVB bosses also plan in case that no agreement with Akanji comes about. In this scenario, the Nati star should be sold in the coming summer. A transfer could be over 25 million euros, speculates the million euross direction.
But the ongoing hanging portion should not last too long. According to “million euros Image”, the poker with Akanji possibly even the search for a substitute.
Freiburg Nico Schlotterbeck, who has been traded at BVB for a long time, have already existed several requests. Since the Dortmund could not afford both defenders, a decision would soon be a decision.
Also Kohler sees here in problem: “either Akanji or Schlotterbeck. Both together I think it is unlikely.
