Whether and when the duo will renew is not yet foreseeable. According to the ‘Ruhr Nachrichten’, BVB wants to expand its cooperation with both Zagadou and Akanji, but discussions have not yet taken place. Neither player should have told the club how they plan for the future.
Zagadou is out for a long time
Should it become apparent that there will be no extension, at least at Zagadou, a sale in the summer could prove to be complicated. Because the young Frenchman is out for the rest of the season with a knee injury. It is unclear when he will get back on his feet.
That probably scares off potential buyers. According to the ‘Ruhr Nachrichten’, BVB is convinced that Zagadou will manage to stay fit in the medium term. This season alone, it is the 21-year-old’s third serious injury.
