Dortmund comes ahead of Madrid once again as Isak signs for the Germans

Real Madrid have lost out to Borussia Dortmund in the race to sign Swedish young striker Alexander Isak 

The German club officially announced the signing of the 17-year old from AIK Solna on Monday morning after talks with the player over the weekend proved successful.

“We are delighted that he has chosen Borussia Dortmund,” Dortmund’s sporting director, Michael Zorc, told the club’s website.

Undisclosed deal

The club did not reveal the terms of transfer, although according to German media, Isak has signed until 2022 for a fee of €9 million. Borussia also confirmed that, with Isak still qualifying as a minor, the transfer is pending special approval from FIFA.

Real Madrid had been leading the race to sign Isak until recently, however, it is believed that Los Blancos inability to register the player until the summer due to their FIFA-imposed transfer man ultimately counted against the club, with Isak choosing Dortmund instead.
