- Barca want Ous but BVB fight back
Different outlets suggest Barca have made their first formal offer for Dembélé and that offer is apparently 70€ million+variables.
Either those rumors are wrong or someone in Barca’s front office just had a stroke because number is ridiculously low considering that it is very late in the transfer period and BVB don’t really have any incentive to sell. Dortmund doesn’t need the money, they need the player.
Hans-Joachim Watzke made the clear when he told Eurosport before the Supercup that “100€ million would not be enough” for Dembélé. Now kicker report that BVB would be willing to sell but only for an outrageous amount of money and they are looking at a possible Mbappé-deal to set that price.
180€ million for Dembélé? While that sounds ridiculous, it’s completely within their right to ask that for a player that still has a contract until 2021.
Kicker say Dortmund could only be tempted by a ridiculous offer for Dembélé and mention it could be along the lines of €180m. https://t.co/1y37BHPCEj— Luca Gierl (@LucaGierl) August 6, 2017
- Mor close to Inter-deal
According to reports from Gianluca Di Marzio and BILD, Emre Mor is close to agreeing to a deal to join Inter Milan.
However reports vary on the specifics of the deal. Some suggest Inter is outright buying Mor (rumors range from 12-20€ million), others indicate that it will be a loan move with an option to buy that would become an obligation if certain criteria are met.
We will have to wait for the exact details of the deal but one thing seems certain, Emre Mor won’t be a BVB-player for much longer.
- Toprak injured
Ömer Toprak has broken his nose in Sunday’s friendly against Rot-Weiß Erfurt. Coach Bosz confirmed the news after the game, it is yet unclear how long Toprak will be out. Usually a broken nose is nothing too serious, most players can play with a special mask after a short period of time.
Daily Buzz: 180€ million! Would you be happy with that fee and who would your potential replacements be?
