BVB, News: Schlotterbeck teases against Schalke
In the talk show “Brinkhoffs Ballgeflüster” on club television, Nico Schlotterbeck made himself popular with BVB fans by teasing local rivals Schalke 04. When TV presenter Sebastian Hellmann, who was also present as a guest, addressed the upcoming top Bundesliga game between Schalke 04 and Borussia Mönchengladbach (Saturday, 6.30 p.m. in LIVETICKER), Schlotterbeck asked with a broad grin: “There are top games at Schalke?”
Of course, this mockery was well received by the fans, and there was much laughter and applause from the audience. With further statements, the 22-year-old, who said of himself that he had a “relatively easy-going tongue”, was apparently able to win new fans among the black and yellow. “I want to give everything for the club,” he said, adding: “Mistakes like my bad pass against Leverkusen when Mo Dahoud saved me still happen to me too often.”
The central defender switched from SC Freiburg to Dortmund this summer for a fee of 20 million euros. In the first two competitive games in the cup (3-0 against 1860 Munich) and in the Bundesliga (1-0 against Leverkusen) he was on the pitch for 90 minutes. Next Friday, the duel against his former club from Freiburg is on the program (from 8.30 p.m. live on DAZN).
BVB, rumours: Does PSV target Dortmund star Malen?
PSV apparently has two Bundesliga strikers in mind when looking for a new attacker. As Eindhoven’s Dagblad and Voetbal International report, Donyell Malen from BVB and Joshua Zirkzee from Bayern Munich are said to be on the list at coach Ruud van Nistelrooy’s club.
However, a change of times is rather unlikely. The 23-year-old Dutchman, who joined Borussia from Eindhoven in 2021, made a strong start to the new season with a goal and an assist in the cup against the Löwen. According to the report, if his situation at BVB changes, PSV is interested in a loan.
Meanwhile, Zirkzee is also being courted by VfB Stuttgart, who see them as a potential replacement for Sasa Kalajdzic should the striker make a move. Talks between Bavaria and Stuttgart are said to have already taken place.
BVB, rumours: City probably still hot for Raphael Guerreiro
Manchester City are apparently interested in signing Raphael Guerreiro from Borussia Dortmund. Corresponding rumors have been circulating for some time now Sky Sports again after. Borna Sosa from VfB Stuttgart should also be on the radar of the English champions.
According to the report, Guerreiro is one of several options City are looking at. The left-back has scored 34 goals and 37 assists in a total of 189 competitive games since joining BVB in 2016.
In addition, City are about to sign Sergio Gómez from Anderlecht, the talks are said to be “well advanced”. However, the Spanish left-back, who also has a Dortmund past, should only be considered a perspective player and will be loaned out directly after the commitment.
Therefore, Manchester continue to look for alternatives for the position after Marc Cucurella withdrew and joined Chelsea.
