Borussia Dortmund apparently wants to extend with Manuel Akanji

Manuel Akanji has developed into a leading player and secret defensive boss at BVB – which is why Borussia would now like to extend the contract with the central defender in the long term. Akanji could then apparently wave a top salary.

Manuel Akanji has become a real leading player at BVB this season, and the Swiss player’s development is positive. That’s why Dortmund are planning to continue with the 26-year-old – and want to make a new contract offer to Akanji soon. At least that’s what the reports image.

Akanji’s contract with Borussia expires in the summer of 2023, according to information from the image The contract is to be extended in the near future until 2027. In the room would then be up to seven million euros annual salary for the central defender. This would move Akanji into the ranks of top earners at BVB.

“Manuel is an absolute leader who played all the games for us when he was fit,” said sporting director Michael Zorc. “We have very high confidence in his abilities, so of course we will try to extend his contract until 2023.”

Akanji could become even more important in Dortmund

the sports picture writes that Akanji is a member of the team council, which also includes Mats Hummels, Emre Can, Axel Witsel and, of course, captain Marco Reus.

However, Hummels and Reus, like Witsel, are well over 30 years old and the Belgian should not continue in Dortmund after this season.
