Chelsea target Youssoufa Moukoko has revealed that he has been left saddened by reports claiming that he has rejected the offer of a new contract at Borussia Dortmund in order to hold out for a bigger salary.
“I know that this is all part of the football business by now, but even though I’m still young, I won’t let myself be pressured in my decision about my future,” wrote Moukoko on Instagram.
“I will never accept such a lie about me. It’s really sad that you can bring something like this into the world nowadays so that you have a false image of me. Very, very sad, because I’m still shocked by the report.”
The Blues are said to be keen admirers of the teenage forward, who looks set to enjoy a long and successful career at the highest levels of the game as a result of his formidable talents and sky-high potential to develop into a world-class striker.
