World News – CA – Eto’o: Moukoko to replace Messi at Barcelona


Barcelona set to target Borussia Dortmund prodigy Youssoufa Moukoko as long-term successor to Lionel Messi, according to Samuel Eto’o

The 15-year-old has been included in the BVB Champions League squad this season, although he is not eligible to participate in Europe’s first club competition until he is 16 years on November 20

Although he has yet to make his senior debut for Dortmund, Moukoko is the player Barca should target as they seek a long-term successor to Messi, 33, according to the former Argentina teammate Eto’o, who was a two-time Champions League winner for five years at Camp Nou

« [There is] a young player who plays for Dortmund called Youssoufa Moukoko, » Eto’o told Goal when asked who he would like to see as Barcelona’s next big signing « [He is] 15 years old, and he is the next best player, for me, after Messi

Eto’o believes Moukoko could form a dream front three after Messi alongside French duo Antoine Griezmann and current Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe, who is another player he would like to see move at Camp Nou

« With Antoine and Youssoufa [in front together], this team would go very well forward », concluded Eto’o « [I would like to see] Kylian Mbappe in Barcelona too »

Messi has appeared close to a Barcelona exit at some point this summer, after handing in a transfer request following a tumultuous 2019-20 season, which saw the Catalan heavyweights humiliated 8-2 by Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals of the Champions League and dethroned by Real Madrid in La Liga

The six-time Ballon d’Or winner has finally chosen to stay at Camp Nou this quarter, despite reservations about the direction the club is heading under Ronald Koeman

Barca, who start their Champions League campaign against Ferencvaros on Wednesday, are currently ninth in La Liga after four games, having fallen to a 1-0 defeat at Getafe on Saturday

German-Cameroonian forward Moukoko, who was ranked 44th in Goal’s 2020 NxGn list celebrating football’s 50 best wonderkids, is the youngest player to play and score in the UEFA Youth League

He has already represented Germany at U-20 level and has scored 134 goals in 86 appearances for Dortmund between U-17 and U-19 levels
