- Sahin signs new contract
Nuri Sahin is currently injured but there are still some good news for the 28-year-old midfielder. He signed a new contract extension that will keep him in black and yellow until 2019. Sahin is not just a valuable player for Thomas Tuchel but he's also a very important player for all the BVB-youngsters, Christian Pulisic has stated on multiple occasions how important Sahin was in his development because he mentors the young players that come out of the BVB-academy. The Turkey international can help guide the youngsters simply because he had to go through the same thing, he was a BVB-academy player before he got promoted to the first team.
- Auba to PSG?
Well, what happened to the Spain-dream?
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has told on multiple the story about the promise he made to his grandfather that one day he'll play for Real Madrid. An endearing story and the reason why most BVB-fans probably wouldn't be to upset if he actually left for Spain.
However now it seems that "I want to go to Spain" has become "I want to follow the money" with France Football reporting that the striker met with PSG Director of football Patrick Kluivert to discuss a potential transfer in the summer. While this seems like the usual easy transfer rumor that one outlet could simply throw out there, let's just remind ourselves that just last year PEA had a very interesting interview with RMC saying: "Yes, I had an offer, it got cut off quickly. Not because I didn't want to join Paris but because they (Paris) didn't act correctly." He goes on saying that PSG went behind his and his fathers (his adviser) back and immediately negotiated with Dortmund who cut off any transfer talks.
To be honest a transfer to Real or Barca seems off the table, both of those clubs just don't have pressing needs at striker, on the other hand PSG or a Premier League club could possibly buy Aubameyang.

Today Dortmund will try to win in Munich to secure a trip to Berlin for the sixth time since 2008. However the third act of Der Klassiker will be marred by injuries on both sides, in addition to Mario Götze, André Schürrle and Sebastian Rode, Dortmund will miss also miss Nuri Sahin and possibly Sokratis.
