Moukoko has been in fine form this season for Borussia Dortmund, having registered eight goals in 14 appearances in the Bundesliga.

No “Barca clause” in new Moukoko deal

Meanwhile, Barcelona will find it extremely difficult to sign Youssoufa Moukoko in the future as it has been revealed that no “Barca clause” was included in his new deal, Football Espana reports.

The La Liga giants would have been able to sign the 18-year-old forward for a cut-price deal if the special clause had been inserted in his new Dortmund contract.

Barcelona would now need to pay full price if they intend to sign Moukoko from the Bundesliga giants before the expiration of his new contract.
