  • BVB keep being linked with Zaha

The never ending Wilfried Zaha to BVB rumors have returned. The striker has been said to be on BVB’s wishlist for some time now but new claims that Crystal Palace will ask more than 90€ million for their star player will surely deter BVB from making a move for him.

If there was ever any real interest in Zaha it will surely be over now. The versatile offensive player would surely fit well into Dortmund’s system but there is no way BVb are paying in excess of 90€ million for a player.

  • VfL Wolfsburg appoint Glasner

It has been known for some time that Bruno Labbadia will not continue as VfL Wolfsburg coach after this season. Instead Wolfsburg have appointed Oliver Glasner who will take over this summer.

The 44-year-old Austrian is currently coaching LASK in Austria and is in second place behind Red Bull Salzburg but without any realistic chance to still catch them. It will be the second coach from the Austrian league as Marco Rose (RB Salzburg) has already been announced as Borussia Mönchengladbach’s next coach.

  • DFB Cup semifinal

Hamburger SV will host RB Leipzig for the first semifinal of the DFB Cup. HSV won the title three times (1963, 1976 and 1987) and finished runners-up three additional times. For RB Leipzig it will be their chance to reach the final for the first time in their clubs history. In addition Hamburg could become the first 2.Bundesliga club to play a DFB Cup final since MSV Duisburg in 2011.

Leipzig are the obvious favorites in this game even though HSV are playing at home. Anything other than an RBL victory would be a huge surprise.
