- Bellingham choses BVB (Sport Bild)
Jude Bellingham might be the most sought after talent in all of Europe right now and according to Sport Bild the 16-year-old has rejected interest from Bayern Munich and wants to join Borussia Dortmund. BVB still have to negotiate a fee for the midfielder with Birmingham but it looks like a deal is likely to happen this summer.
- Favre under pressure (Sport Bild)
It looks like BVB plan to replace Lucien Favre this summer. According to Sport Bild only a Bundesliga title win could save his job which looks unlikely at this point considering that the season might not even have a winner.
The black and yellows want Erik ten Hag from Ajax Amsterdam to replace the Swiss coach. Ten Hag is a promising coach who had a lot of success with Ajax’ young team last season. The Dutch coach prefers to play with a 4-3-3 which could force BVB to make some changes to the squad which is currently more suited for a 3-4-3/3-5-2 system.
Other candidates for the job are Adi Hütter from Eintracht Frankfurt and Julian Nagelsmann from RB Leipzig although it is unlikely that Leipzig would let him leave. Mauricio Pochettino and Niko Kovac are out of the running.
Only the #Bundesliga title will secure Lucien Favre's job at #BVB beyond this summer according to Sport Bild. #Ajax's Erik ten Hag is a candidate to take over. No longer candidates are Pochettino and Niko Kovac. Dortmund like Nagelsmann but he has no exit-clause at #RBLeipzig.— Manuel Veth (@ManuelVeth) March 18, 2020
