Borussia Dortmund have an interest in signing highly rated Manchester City winger Jayden Braaf, but no agreement has been reached yet with the club or the player.
Jayden Braaf is keen to leave Manchester City due to a lack of first team opportunities. And according to BILD, Borussia Dortmund are very interested in signing him. The tabloid reports that Dortmund have been observing the performances of the 18 year old winger for some time. But no agreement has yet been reached with the player or the club.
Manchester City are said to be demanding a fee in the range of 8-10 million euros for Braaf, who has two and a half years remaining on his current contract. The Premier League giants are also said to want a buyback clause in the event of a possible transfer after watching Jadon Sancho enjoy a meteoric rise in Dortmund.
Sancho joined Borussia Dortmund from Manchester City in 2017 for less than eight million euros. He has since turned into one of the best young forwards in Europe, and is now worth at least 100 million euros. The Black and Yellows also signed 16 year old forward Jamie Bynoe-Gittens from Manchester City in the summer.
Ruhr Nachrichten also report that while Borussia Dortmund have interest in Braaf, no negotiations have taken place yet. He would be a potential option for them next summer at the earliest, and nothing is concrete at the moment.
Braaf joined Manchester City from PSV Eindhoven in 2018, and has yet to make his professional debut for the club. He won the club’s U-23 Player of the Year award last season, but has only made two appearances for the U-23s so far this season. Braaf has also been capped by the Netherlands at the U-18s level.
