Borussia Dortmund’s 14-Year-Old Striker Youssoufa Moukoko Signs €10M Nike Deal

Borussia Dortmund‘s 14-year-old striker Youssoufa Moukoko has been handed a lucrative sponsorship deal by Nike – which could see him earn a whopping €10 million.

The exciting youngster has been earmarked as a potential star of the future by German football scouts for some time now, with the teenager netting an extraordinary 36 goals in 21 games for BVB’s Under-17 team so far this season.

And it seems Moukoko’s remarkable talent has alerted the world’s biggest sportswear giants, with Nike winning the race to sign him up to a deal which could realistically make him a millionaire before he even turns 15.

Respectable German newspaper Bild claim Moukoko has already received €1 million from the deal to wear the American company’s boots and apparel – and depending on how his progression in football develops the teen could stand to make up to €9 million more.

Remarkably, Nike have agreed to shell out such a mammoth figure for a player who cannot legally make his debut for Dortmund’s first-team until he turns 16 – which isn’t until November 2020.

What do you think of handing such extraordinary and life changing incentives to such a young player?
