Jeremy Toljan has missed today’s training and is supposedly in Italy to complete his move to Sassuolo Calcio. According to kicker the fullback will join the Serie A side on loan for one season, in addition Sassuolo has an option to buy Toljan at the end of the season.

Borussia Dortmund have a new young American talent in town after Christian Pulisic has left and he has talked to Ruhr Nachrichten about the reason he chose BVB:

“My dad wanted the best for me, and the best thing for me was the change, especially here in Dortmund, where people live football, and everything is much more professional, and when the offer came from Dortmund, it just fit perfectly.“

Plus he obviously talked to Pulisic about the club and the former BVB-player had some positive things to say:

“Christian Pulisic told me it could be tough. And he loved being here, and I’m sure I’ll love it too.”

In addition Reyna talks about the tragic death of his older brother in 2012 and how it shaped him as a person.

Dembélé, Coutinho, Griezmann and now Neymar, all of them have one thing in common, they want to join Barcelona and have gone on strike to get what they want. We all could be naive and just say that it is a strange coincidence but at this point it is likely that the Spanish side is to blame for the behavior of the players. However this time around it involves PSG and it will be interesting to see how a club with a virtually limitless budget will react to such a situation.
