Reinhard Rauball, president of Borussia Dortmund, has announced that he will step down as the president of the DFL when his mandate ends next year. After twelve years as the head of the DFL Rauball will be the last president because there will be fundamental changes within the organization. A new governing body will be created with one chairman to lead them.

According to calciomercato Borussia Dortmund is one of the clubs interested in PSV Eindhoven winger Hirving “Chucky” Lozano. Juventus, Manchester United, Atletico Madrid and Inter Milan are the other mentioned clubs.

We all know there is a strong possibility Christian Pulisic will leave after this season and Lozano could be a perfect replacement for the young American. However Lozano has been making a name for himself lately which means the black and yellows will probably face stiff competition.

La Liga has already decided to play league games in the United States, it looks like Girona vs Barcelona will be the first game abroad. However according to Jaume Roures, chairman of Spanish broadcasting company Mediapro, UEFA is also thinking about possibly playing a Champions League final in New York.

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin seemed to be open for it saying “I think it could be a good idea for the future. [...] For instance traveling from Portugal to Azerbaidjan takes just as long as traveling to New York.”
