Soumaïla Coulibaly wants to leave Borussia Dortmund this summer, and his representatives are now looking for alternatives after his failed move to Burnley.

Borussia Dortmund defender Soumaïla Coulibaly was on the verge of joining Burnley and had already undergone medical tests before the transfer fell through earlier this week. There was a disagreement between the two clubs over the mandatory buy clause that would have come into effect at the end of the loan spell, causing the proposed move to collapse.

The Black and Yellows were hoping to receive a total fee in the region of 17.5 million euros from Coulibaly’s sale. But the move has now fallen through, and it remains to be seen what the future holds for the young defender.

Coulibaly made his return to training at Borussia Dortmund on Friday morning. But according to Ruhr Nachrichten, the 19 year old still wants to leave the club this summer and his representatives are now working to find an alternate solution for him.

Soumaïla Coulibaly has been limited to just two first-team appearances for Borussia Dortmund since joining the club on a free transfer from Paris Saint Germain in 2021. The French centre-back’s progress since joining BVB has been hampered by injury problems and the high competition for places in the first-team.
