  • Aubameyang off to PSG

It seems increasingly likely that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will leave Borussia Dortmund this summer and join Paris St. Germain. While Zorc still claims that no decision is made yet, several outlets report that Auba has already agreed to a deal with the French team. There are even claims that he already cleaned out his locker at Dortmund.

It's time to face reality, Auba is practically gone and it's now Zorc's job to get as much money as we possibly can and it is his and Mislintat's to find a replacement. They have done it so often in the past that we should probably trust them to do it again. Players like Morata, Lukaku and Lacazette are probably not joining us, Dortmund will likely move for players like Schick, Dolberg or Iheneacho but we'll see.

  • BVB still interested in Jordi Mboula

The 18-year-old winger who is currently playing for Barcelona's U19 is one of Europe's most sought after talents and Dortmund are reportedly still an option for him. Mboula will be available for 3€ million because of a release clause in his contract which is rather cheap for a player of his caliber.

It might be a good idea for Dortmund to get another winger considering that Reus will miss an extended period of time. Dembélé, Pulisic, Mor, Schürrle and Bruun Larsen will fight for the starting spots this summer but it is unsure if Mor and/or Schürrle are staying with the club so another winger could bolster the position.

  • 1860 Munich got relegated

A sad day for one of Germany's biggest teams. 1860 Munich has been relegated to the 3.Bundesliga after they lost their relegation playoff against Jahn Regensburg yesterday(1:1/0:2).

1860 was one of the founding members of the Bundesliga in 1963/64 and won the title in 1965/66, now the Bavarians are all the way down in the 3.Bundesliga. The club saw a fast demise in recent years, especially after investor Hasan Ismaik took over. Ismaik basically changed everything within the club, bought countless players and bled dry their once proud youth system. The Bender-twins and Julian Weigl are just a few examples of prospects that played for them.

1860 Munich is one of the best examples why a billionaire investor might not always be the best idea.

  • Happy Birthday Marco Reus!
