The transfer window is open until Saturday, Dortmund have done their business early and would like to keep the current squad intact but Raphael Guerreiro still hasn’t made up his mind. The Portuguese international has an offer from the black and yellows on the table, a new contract that would increase his salary from 3€ million to 5€ million.
However, according to Bild PSG have made a better offer. The French top club is offering Guerreiro 8€ million base salary that could rise up to 10€ million with bonuses. The transfer could still fail simply because of PSG’s restrictions in the transfer market.
Because of “Financial Fair Play” PSG can’t sign any more players unless they sell someone. Neymar and Julian Draxler are still rumored to potentially leave the club so we will have to wait until Saturday.
- Hazard out injured
Thorgan Hazard picked up an injury during the game against 1.FC Köln last Friday. The winger has injured his ribs and will be out for a few weeks. The club has not disclosed an exact timetable for his return.
While this is unfortunate, BVB should have the depth to replace him with Brandt, Wolf, Bruun Larsen and Guerreiro (if he stays) to replace him.
On slightly better news, young right back Mateu Morey has resumed individual training and is working on his comeback.
Daily Buzz: Julian Brandt turned the game around against Köln when he replaced Julian Weigl in midfield. With Thorgan Hazard out should Brandt play on the wing or replace Weigl as the “8” in midfield? In that case who should play on the wing?
