It is now clear that Julien Duranville (16) will no longer play for Anderlecht. Duranville itself is already complete with Borussia Dortmund and the clubs are also on the brink of collapse. The 16-year-old flank attacker can already be medically examined on Thursday. Anderlecht will receive at least 12.5 million euros.
The Julien Duranville file has really picked up speed over the past few hours. Anderlecht has been negotiating with Borussia Dortmund over the past few days about a definitive transfer of the 16-year-old super talent from their own youth department. Duranville would possibly travel to Dortmund tomorrow for a medical and then sign a contract. According to our information, Anderlecht would be 12.5 million euros including guaranteed bonuses. In the long term, this amount can still increase, since Anderlecht also has a percentage resale quota specified in the contract.
Anderlecht can use the money at the moment, but on the other hand Anderlecht loses a great talent from their own stable far too early in Duranville. The Purple & White would have liked to see things differently and tried several times to persuade Duranville to stay with Anderlecht for a longer period of time, but the entourage insisted on leaving. “The Flash”, as he is nicknamed, made his debut in the play-offs at Club Brugge last year under Vincent Kompany. In the summer he then extended his contract by a year until 2024, and Dortmund wanted to get him even then. Due to various muscle injuries, Duranville has barely played 340 minutes in ten competitive games with the first team this season.
