Man City and PSG told to fork out £68m by Borussia Dortmund for Julian Weigl

German star could soon be on the move after the arrivals of Axel Witsel and Thomas Delaney at Signal Iduna Park this summer

Borussia Dortmund have placed a £68million price tag on midfielder Julian Weigl amid interest from Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain.

That figure is according to France Football, who claim the German side will not sell the star for anything less.

Speculation over Weigl’s future has intensified over recent weeks with both the Premier League and Ligue 1 champions heavily linked with a swoop.

Dortmund brought in Alex Witsel from Tianjin Quanjian this summer, raising doubts over the Germany international’s future.

And with Thomas Delaney also arriving from Werder Bremen, the Bundesliga side can afford to allow the midfielder to depart.

Their former manager Thomas Tuchel, now in charge of PSG, would like a reunion with the ace at Parc des Princes.

And Pep Guardiola is a big fan of the 22-year-old and could launch a move in January.

Weigl joined Dortmund from 1860 Munich in 2016.

His performances led to a senior call-up for his country a year later and he has gone to win five caps.

Last season Weigl started 20 times for Dortmund but his opportunities look like they will be restricted this campaign.
