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.
