Good morning, everyone.
It’s been a very confusing few days in the transfer window this weekend. Borussia Dortmund’s front office seems to be wheeling and dealing as they try to plug the various holes that plague the squad at right back and on the attack. Unfortunately, the consequences of leaving all this business to the last minute seem to be taking hold.
According to multiple sources, Diogo Dalot, the Portuguese right back that BVB were hoping to acquire on loan from Manchester United, will not be coming to Dortmund. Furthermore, the acquisition of Callum Hudson-Odoi is still uncertain, as even though Callum is interested in the move to Dortmund, it’s unclear whether Chelsea will ultimately sign off on the deal.
BVB have drawn FC Ingolstadt in the second round of the DFB-Pokal. Ingolstadt currently play in the 2. Bundesliga, having been relegated from the top tier of German football in 2016.

Lionel Messi Appears for PSG
Man, this was just weird. Lionel Messi has played for Barcelona since I was in the second grade. Now, he’s suiting up for Paris Saint-Germain. He made his first appearance on the pitch with his new club against Stade de Reims, coming off the bench in PSG’s 2-0 win in Ligue 1.

If BVB do sign Callum Hudson-Odoi, how would you change the system on the pitch, if at all?
