Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund is also chasing FC Bayern in the 2021/22 season. In order to have more chances of winning the championship in the coming season, BVB has now allegedly identified four construction sites. One point should be the separation of three players.
One thing is certain: Sebastian Kehl will have a lot of work to do at Borussia Dortmund as the successor to long-time sporting director Michael Zorc. The ex-captain has been employed as a licensed player manager at BVB since 2018, and he will follow in the footsteps of the successful manager from the summer.
The Spanish portal “Fichajes” now claims to have figured out how much work lies ahead of Kehl. It is said that BVB has to close four construction sites before the start of the new season.
It is obvious to clarify the situation of striker Erling Haaland once and for all. The Norwegian actually still has a contract with the black and yellow until 2024, but due to an agreement with the BVB bosses he could change after the current season for the reported transfer fee of around 75 million euros.
Dortmund’s plan with Haaland and Adeyemi
The Spanish media keep saying that Haaland would like to switch to Real Madrid. However, since the royals first want to sign PSG star Kylian Mbappé and there is not too much space in the storm headquarters next to Karim Benzema anyway, Real is said to be working on a Haaland commitment in the summer of 2023.
The possible plan: Real suggests to Haaland that his release clause will be postponed to the coming year. Zorc and Kehl would thus achieve their primary goal of the 21-year-old playing for BVB again in the coming season.
Second task for Borussia is loud “Fichajes” Karim Adeyemi’s commitment, which should take place regardless of Erling Haaland’s future. The “kicker” has also already reported that Dortmund has the best cards with the German international. However, no agreement has yet been reached with his club RB Salzburg the amount of the transfer fee can be achieved.
BVB reportedly wants to say goodbye to the trio
Point three on the agenda is the transfer of defender Nico Schlotterbeck. The Freiburger can certainly imagine a change in the summer, but staying in Breisgau is still possible. Dortmund want to get Schlotterbeck despite Bayern Munich’s Niklas Süle commitment. Because: There may be a major upheaval in the defense.
If the Spanish portal has its way, BVB could part with three defensive players. Accordingly, the time of Manuel Akanji, Emre Can and Dan-Axel Zagadou could end in the summer.
According to the “kicker”, however, Zagadou should soon put the ink under a new contract with the Revierklub, and Can is not actually considered a change candidate given his contract, which is valid until 2024. The Swiss Akanji alone was recently actually associated with a move to England, also because of the Süle obligation.
