Good morning fellow normal people!
Manchester City to Sign a Striker this Summer...
There continue to be rumors linking all of Borussia Dortmund’s players to all of the clubs that are not Borussia Dortmund. If you thought that the end of the transfer window would bring some relief from rumors linking BVB to emptying all their cupboards for the good people running anyone in the Premier League’s top 6, you thought wrong. It seems like Jadon Sancho is definitely on his way in the summer, WAZ recently reported that BVB are prepared to sell eight of their players, and if selling all our players wasn’t enough, that includes Haaland to Man City.
According to very reliable football news source 90min, Man City intend to sign a striker this summer, and their main target is our very own Erling Haaland.

But BVB will not Sell Haaland this Summer...
Despite all these reports, Constantin Eckner says that Dortmund will try to keep hold of Haaland for another season.
As reported, Borussia Dortmund may sell a few players if they don't reach the Champions League. While the departure of Jadon Sancho is set in stone, Gio Reyna and/or Raphaël Guerreiro could also be sold. Dortmund will try to keep Erling Haaland for another season, though. #BVB— Constantin Eckner (@cc_eckner) February 11, 2021
But he also says that Gio Reyna and Rapha Guerreiro could be off. So we can’t have nice things.
Delaney Claims BVB are Too Impatient?
Today has been a pretty slow BVB news day, as demonstrated by the utter dross that I’ve selected as newsworthy so far, so when I went in search for nuggets of interesting BVB news, I stumbled across Kicker’s Thomas Delaney interview.
Delaney: "Wir sind als Mannschaft zu ungeduldig" #BVB #BorussiaDortmund https://t.co/cj2sd4aD7T— kicker ⬢ Borussia Dortmund (@kicker_BVB) February 10, 2021
Delaney is quoted in the above tweet saying that BVB are too impatient. This quote initially made me think that Delaney is calling for Dortmund to play the even longer game, either on the pitch or in the transfer market. Either way I hate it and I hate Thomas Delaney. But it turns out he didn’t mean that at all. He was saying that BVB react badly to setbacks, and lose their composure, rather than being patient and going about their business even when something goes wrong. I completely agree with him on that, and it goes to show that so much can get lost in translation!
It’s an interesting interview, and he talks about Terzic, his role in the team, and his future at the club. I’d highly recommend giving it a read.
