The decision-makers at Borussia Dortmund have apparently given up courting Ilkay Gündogan. The sale of Jude Bellingham shakes a transfer request. The news and rumors about BVB.
BVB, rumor: bosses give up Gündogan transfer
Borussia Dortmund is apparently giving up courting for its ex-player Ilkay Gündogan. As the Picture reported, the BVB bosses no longer believe in the realization of the transfer. With a possible extension at Manchester City and the two interested parties FC Barcelona and FC Arsenal, the competition is too big.
The City captain would be available on a free transfer this summer as his contract with the Champions League winners expires. There is said to have been an “intensive exchange of ideas” about the ex-player in the Dortmund management level, but this is apparently not being pursued any further.
BVB, rumours: Does the Bellingham deal shake the desired transfer?
Everything is clear between Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund: As the clubs announced on Wednesday, Jude Bellingham’s move is official. As BVB has already reported as a joint stock company, the royals are paying 103 million euros plus bonus payments to Borussia – and other clubs probably want some of that now!
As the Picture reported, Ajax Amsterdam are said to have raised their demands for Edson Álvarez after the monster deal. The Dutch are now said to be asking 45 million euros for BVB’s preferred defensive midfielder. BVB’s last offer is said to have been only 35 million euros. The deal threatens to shake anyway due to the approaching Declan Rice transfer, as West Ham United are said to be interested in Álvarez in their search for a successor.
