Basel’s Xhaka wants to join Moenchengladbach

Teenage Switzerland international Granit Xhaka says he wants to

join Borussia Moenchengladbach in the offseason from FC Basel.

Xhaka tells the Basler Zeitung daily: ”For me, everything is

decided. Now, it’s the two clubs who must reach an agreement.”

The 19-year-old Xhaka would likely cost Moenchengladbach

millions as his Basel contract runs for three more seasons.

Xhaka impressed in Basel’s run to the last 16 of the Champions

League this season alongside Swiss teammate Xherdan Shaqiri, who is

joining Bayern Munich.

Moenchengladbach is fourth in the Bundesliga, a spot that would

earn a place in the Champions League playoff round in August.

Before then, the Kosovo-born Xhaka should figure in

Switzerland’s squad at the London Olympics.
