It’s no secret that Borussia Monchengladbach are interested in Rabbi Matondo. But who isn’t?
According to the football transfer rumours in British and German media, Borussia Monchengladbach are linked with a move for Manchester City winger Rabbi Matondo.
The 18-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
Matondo has one and a half years left on his current contract which expires in 2020.
Rabbi Matondo made 31 appearances across all competitions for Manchester City Under-23, scoring 11 goals and supplying 5 assists in return.
The 18-year-old is considered to be one of the best wingers in Wales.
Rabbi Matondo has represented Wales at Under-17 and Under-21 level, winning 15 caps, before making his senior international debut in November 2018. As a member of Wales national football team, Matondo won one cap.
Dieter Hecking wants to sign a new winger and Rabbi Matondo is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. He is a known admirer of the player and is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing him this winter.
Matondo’s tricky dribbling, fantastic shot and pace make him a nightmare for any defender to defend.
According to City Watch (via Sport Bild), “Bundesliga side Borussia Monchengladbach are leading the race to sign speedy young Manchester City winger Rabbi Matondo, German newspaper SPORT BILD reports. The 18-year-old, who Ryan Giggs recently gave a senior Wales debut to, has shown no sign of renewing his City contract and could be the next wonderkid out of the door after Jadon Sancho and Brahim Diaz, with interest growing. Matondo, who is reportedly faster than Leroy Sané and Kyle Walker, is attracting heavy interest from Germany where many young English talents are now heading to further their development after the Sancho success story. City still hope to hold on to Matondo, who was recruited from Cardiff’s academy, but should he decide to leave, the Blues will look to earn at least €10 million (£8.9 million) from his sale.”

Signing the 18-year-old in the winter transfer window would be a masterstroke from Hecking.
Stylistically, he would be a great fit in Borussia Monchengladbach.
It will be interesting to see whether Borussia Monchengladbach will make their move during the winter transfer window.
