Dortmund readying Maatsen offer

chelsea fc

Borussia Dortmund are ready to make a first offer to sign full-back Ian Maatsen on a permanent basis.

The 22 year old Dutchman spent the second half of last season on loan from Chelsea at the Bundesliga side, and was part of the team that reached the Champions League final against Real Madrid at Wembley (although it was his error that led to Real’s second goal).

Maatsen has a ₤35 million release clause, and the initial Dortmund bid is thought to fall someway short of that.

He is under contract at Stamford Bridge, having signed an extension to his existing deal in January.

Prior to the Champions League final it was revealed that he was still uncertain as to his future, nd that he had not had any discussions with Chelsea about their plans for him.

He can at least look forward to the summer off, after he failed to make the final cut for Ronald Koeman’s Dutch squad for Euro 24.
