It looks like Borussia Dortmund will miss out on one of their transfer targets, Maximilian Eggestein. The central midfielder is said to be on BVB’s list of possible reinforcements for this summer but it seems like the 22-year-old will sign an extension with Werder Bremen:

“I have made a decision. There are only one or two details to clarify “ [...] ”It will be announced soon.“

Michael Zorc will have to look elsewhere for a new midfielder.

Carsten Cramer, BVB’s marketing director has confirmed that the club is in the process of producing a documentary about Dortmund and the work behind the scenes of the club. Aljoscha Pause has been hired to lead the project, the filmmaker has a lot of experience with football documentaries, he already produced “Being Mario Götze” and “Trainer!”. It is not yet clear where the documetary will air once it’s done but according to Bild there have already been talks with Amazon.

Dortmund have been one of the teams that played in the International Champions Cup during the last two summers but the club has announced that they won’t be a part of the competition this year. The ICC is played all around the world and consists of the biggest clubs in the world. Marketing director Carsten Cramer explained BVB’s absence:

“The program of the ICC was extremely reduced this year” [..] “We are in the process of implementing a different plan and it’s close to completion, so we will nonetheless have a journey with attractive games.”

The black and yellows will travel to Asia this year, however it is not yet clear where exactly and when the pre-season tour will take them. Cramer also confirmed that this is just a decision made for this year’s ICC and Dortmund could be part of the competition again next year.
