This afternoon, the German sports media outlet Kicker just confirmed that VfL Wolfsburg player André Schürrle is almost a Borussia Dortmund player.
After months of negotiation, Dortmund management has finally reached a deal with Wolfsburg management. Schürrle will cost us a staggering 30 million Euros, making him our record transfer to date.
The only obstacle remaining s Schürrle's medical, which will be done soon in Dortmund.
It remains to be seen if Dortmund management will announce this transfer before or after the Asian tour which begins on Thursday. Schürrle plays no part in this tour - he'll be on vacation after his performance in the Euros for Die Mannschaft.
This transfer has received mixed responses from the fans - not everyone is convinced he's worth the price tag. Dortmund management seem to want to wait to announce the André Schürrle and Mario Götze transfers together, to let one take the heat of the other (don't know which way though).
In any case, we'll see what unfolds!
