Farewell Looms: Soumaila Coulibaly Nearing Dortmund Exit with Million-Dollar Clause

Borussia Dortmund is about to lose another talent. Soumaila Coulibaly is said to be close to a move to FC Metz. The French club is said to be willing to pay a transfer fee of around €5 million for the 18-year-old defender.

Coulibaly joined Borussia Dortmund’s youth academy in 2018. He quickly rose through the ranks and made his Bundesliga debut in 2021. However, he has struggled to establish himself as a regular in the first team. He has made only 10 appearances for Borussia Dortmund in all competitions.

FC Metz is said to be interested in Coulibaly because of his potential. The French club is looking to build a team for the future and Coulibaly fits the bill. He is a tall and strong defender with good technical skills. He is also good on the ball and can play out from the back.

The transfer of Coulibaly would be a blow to Borussia Dortmund. He is one of the most promising young defenders in Germany. However, the club is also aware that he needs to play regularly to develop. A move to FC Metz would give him that opportunity.

The transfer fee of around €5 million is a good deal for Borussia Dortmund. Coulibaly is still a young player and he has not yet played a major role in the first team. The club is likely to make a profit on him in the future.

The departure of Coulibaly would leave Borussia Dortmund with a shortage of defenders. The club has already lost Marin Pongracic and Dan-Axel Zagadou this summer. However, the club is expected to sign at least one new defender in the coming weeks.

The departure of Coulibaly is another sign that Borussia Dortmund is in a state of transition. The club is rebuilding after losing a number of key players in recent years. The club is also under new management, with Edin Terzic taking over as head coach in May.

It will be interesting to see how Borussia Dortmund copes without Coulibaly. The club has a lot of young talent, but they need to start winning games if they want to challenge for trophies.
