BVB, rumor: Adeyemi transfer threatens to burst
Karim Adeyemi’s transfer to Borussia Dortmund could apparently burst. As the image reported, BVB and RB Salzburg have not yet been able to come closer to the transfer fee.
The Austrians would not deviate from their demand of 45 million euros. Dortmund, on the other hand, is not willing to pay more than 38 million euros for the national player. The talks would therefore currently be on hold.
Salzburg’s persistence can also be explained by Erling Haaland’s move back then. The Norwegian switched from RB to BVB in January 2020 thanks to an exit clause for 20 million euros. Adeyemi shouldn’t turn out to be a bargain afterwards.
Adeyemi should close the gap at BVB that will open up after Haaland’s likely departure in the summer. The Norwegian has a release clause of between 75 and 85 million euros. Manchester City and Real Madrid are favorites for a transfer.
BVB is probably thinking about extending the contract with Reus
Borussia Dortmund is apparently considering extending Marco Reus’ contract, which expires in the summer of 2023.
According to information from sports1 there had already been a first meeting with the advisor to the BVB captain, but no concrete talks had been held.
The 32-year-old is one of the team’s top performers again this season and is also seen as a role model for the club.
“BVB is my club, Dortmund is my hometown and I would like to end my career here,” Reus said recently in an interview with the picture on sunday and explained: “I’ve already extended my contract twice, especially at times when things weren’t going particularly well in terms of sport. So why shouldn’t I do it now?”
However, Reus would probably have to reckon with a drop in salary. Due to the corona pandemic, BVB lost around 75 million euros, and advanced age and susceptibility to injuries also played a role. With an annual salary of rumored twelve million euros, he is currently one of the top earners.
BVB: farewell to Akanji well sealed
Manuel Akanji will apparently leave Borussia Dortmund in the summer. That’s what they report Ruhr news.
Accordingly, the central defender still does not think of accepting an offer to extend his contract, which expires in 2023. A few weeks ago it was reported that Akanji had rejected an offer for significantly better covers.
Akanji is eyeing a move to the Premier League. Most recently, Manchester United was considered an interested party. According to the report, BVB is hoping for a severance payment of 30 million euros.
