Due to the upcoming transfer of attacker Sébastien Haller, the personnel planning at Borussia Dortmund is probably complete for the time being. In the case of the sales candidates, the situation is now much more difficult.
Because like the “Ruhr news“Write, BVB is still waiting for concrete offers from the central candidates for change. There are currently no offers from other clubs for either Manuel Akanji, Nico Schulz or Raphael Guerreiro.
The contracts of Akanji and Guerreiro expire next summer, at least the Swiss is said to have signaled that an extension is out of the question for him. This means that the Westphalians only have the chance of an appropriate transfer fee in the upcoming transfer period.
The two left-backs in the club also have considerable doubts about a future together. Guerreiro has been criticized for his defensive vulnerability and sometimes unprofessional lifestyle. In addition, the Portuguese is often injured.
Schulz, who is still tied until 2024, has never really been able to meet expectations since moving from Hoffenheim. The club will have to write off large parts of the 25 million euros that BVB transferred to TSG in 2019, even if it were sold.
BVB needs transfer proceeds for new players
However, the fact that there is currently no market for the three players hits BVB hard. Because according to the latest report, further newcomers at Borussia depend on their own transfer proceeds. Only when the BVB player has sold can further purchases be considered.
This also applies to left-back David Raum, for example, who is said to be very popular with the Revierklub.
The Haller deal is apparently not affected by the lack of sales. According to consistent media reports, Dortmund are in agreement with the center forward from Ajax Amsterdam. Around 31 million euros are expected to flow to the Dutch capital for the services of the designated Haaland successor.
According to the “kicker”, a confirmation is still pending because Ajax does not want to close the deal until July in order to take the proceeds into the new financial year.
