André Schürrle has no future in Dortmund, the winger isn’t even with the team right now but is staying in Berlin where he is training individually and looking for a new club. According to Bild Borussia Dortmund is ready to let the World Cup winner go for as little as 8€ million if a club were interested.
Considering that Schürrle was BVB’s record signing at 30€ million just a few years ago, letting him go for 8€ million would make it one of the biggest transfer flops in Dortmund’s history but the club does not really have any other choice. Schürrle won’t play for BVB anymore and the black and yellows will have to accept a low offer to get his massive salary (7€ million per year) of the books.
Italian club Sassuolo Calcio is interested in BVB fullback Jeremy Toljan. According to Ruhr Nachrichten there are talks about a possible loan deal with an option to buy for the Serie A side. Toljan was on loan at Celtic last season and while he’s currently with the BVB squad the fullback will probably have a hard time playing or even getting into the matchday rosters.
Jadon Sancho has repeatedly been linked to a move to Manchester United despite BVB-officials making it clear that he will stay in Dortmund next season. Now even a former United player has advised him to stay with the black and yellows. Wayne Rooney has talked to Bild and he thinks BVB might be the best place for Sancho right now:
“They bet on young players there. You can see that in Sancho too, you can see the progress he has made in the last twelve months. It’s fun to watch him, he’s doing really well at BVB. [...] Now he has to ask himself whether he will get the playing time he gets in Dortmund when he moves to England. Or would he just sit there on the bench? Playtime is so important to a young player like Jadon. If he gets the most playing time in Dortmund, he should stay there.“
