Dortmund sign teenage striker Isak
BORUSSIA Dortmund have signed Swedish teenager Alexander Isak on a long-term contract pending a green light from world soccer’s governing body Fifa due to the gifted striker being under 18, the German club said yesterday. Dortmund also said they had extended the contract of US international Christian Pulisic, with the hugely talented 18-year-old attacking midfielder penning a deal to 2020. The 17-year-old Isak, who only days ago was reportedly set to join Spanish giants Real Madrid, made his professional debut for AIK at the age of 16. He became Sweden’s youngest ever goalscorer this month, netting in his first start in a 6-0 friendly thrashing of Slovakia.
