BORUSSIA DORTMUND wonderkid Youssoufa Moukoko is set to turn professional on Friday.
The 15-year-old forward has scored a barely-believable 192 goals in 123 youth games for the German giants.

And on Friday, Moukoko will turn 16 and finally be eligible to sign his first professional contract.
The new deal will keep the red-hot striker at the club for years to come – and come with a bumper pay-day.
But even now, not yet a professional and aged just 15, Moukoko is earning an extraordinary amount.
Such is the hype surrounding the forward, Moukoko is being paid £6,000 a week by Dortmund – a staggering amount for a youth team player.
On top of that, the youngster signed a long-term deal with Nike last year – worth an outrageous £9MILLION in all.
Moukoko even took home a signing-on fee of nearly £1m for putting pen to paper with Nike.
Bild claim Moukoko will receive a ‘mid-six-figure sum’ for making his Bundesliga debut, whenever that may be.
And Dortmund have a record of giving their youngsters pay-rises on their birthdays, with Giovani Reyna receiving a huge bump after turning 18 last week.

Having scored 192 goals in just 123 games for the youth team, Dortmund might want to steer clear of a goal bonus for Moukoko though, or he might bankrupt them.
Unbelievably, Moukoko is so good the Bundesliga have changed their age eligibility rules in order to let him play.
Previously, players have not been allowed to play in Germany’s top-flight until they are 16-and-a-half.
But such has been the hype surrounding Moukoko’s rapid rise, this has now been lowered to just 16.
Moukoko has been tipped for greatness for years already – having turned out for Dortmund’s Under-17s and Germany’s Under-16s aged just 12.
All eyes will now be on Dortmund on Friday with Moukoko finally set to turn pro.
