Borussia Dortmund are still looking for a central midfielder and while talks for Thomas Delaney have seemingly stalled a bit, Marca claims the black and yellows have turned their attention to Omar Mascarell. Real Madrid still have a buy-back clause for the defensive midfielder form Eintracht Frankfurt that they could trigger this summer in order to sell him with a profit to another club. The report claims several other Bundesliga and Primera Division clubs are also interested with Bayern and Schalke among them.
- Ricardo Rodriguez back to the Bundesliga?
Reports out of Italy claim BVB and Bayern Munich are both interested in Ricardo Rodriguez. The Swiss left back just moved to AC Milan last summer but failed to leave in impression in the Serie A which might make him available this summer. Rodriguez would be an interesting option for Dortmund who still need reinforcements at both full back positions.

- Germany WC squad
Das ist der finale Kader für die #WM2018 ⚽#DieMannschaft #ZSMMN pic.twitter.com/tvaIKLiEuz— Die Mannschaft (@DFB_Team) June 4, 2018
Germany has announced their final World Cup-squad and Marco Reus has made the team. However there were some surprises among Löw’s final cuts. Jonathan Tah and Nils Petersen were expected but leaving Bernd Leno and Leroy Sané off the team is quite surprising. Instead of Leno, Löw decided to go with Trapp as their third goalkeeper and Julian Brandt will go to Russia instead of Sané. The good thing about the omission of Sané is that Marco Reus is all but guaranteed a starting spot as one of Germany’s wingers.
