Maximilian Philipp and André Schürrle are still looking to leave Borussia Dortmund and it seems that both could end up in Russia.

According to kicker Dynamo Moscow is currently in the lead to land Philipp. The verstile offensive player was linked to VfL Wolfsburg and Eintracht Frankfurt but Moscow is the most likely club to pay BVB’s demands of close to 20€ million.

Meanwhile André Schürrle could end up with another Moscow based club, Spartak Moscow. Schürrle’s agent confirmed toward Sky Sport News that both clubs held “good talks” about a possible transfer. Right now it looks like the most likely option wold be a loan with an option to buy.

The club and Mario Götze will resume negotiations about a new contract but both sides are reportedly still a bit apart when it comes to the salary. As of right now Götze is one of only three players at BVB who earn more than 10€ million per year, the other two being Marco Reus and Mats Hummels.

Dortmund would like to extend but only if Götze accepts a pay cut and a contract in the 7-8€ million range. The club would rather let Götze leave next summer on a free transfer than give him another 10€ million contract.

Shinji Kagawa is reportedly close to a move to Primera Division club Celta Vigo. The Japanese international always asked for a move to Spain and this might be his chance. A future in Dortmund is unlikely at this point.
