BVB, News: Rumors about Jude Bellingham are spreading
What’s next for Jude Bellingham? This question has been one of the hotly debated for months, and there are dozens of rumors surrounding the Dortmund midfielder. He is still under contract with BVB until 2025, but it is not unlikely that he will say goodbye next summer.
Now there seems to be more movement in poker around the Englishman – but the sources contradict each other. According to Norwegian ex-professional Jan Aage Fjörtoft, who works for several international TV channels, Liverpool FC has sent Dortmund an official offer for Bellingham.
However, several media report the opposite. According to the English newspapers telegraph and Guardians the Reds have said goodbye to the race for Bellingham. That also reports sports1. The reasons should be of a financial nature: BVB demands loudly Guardians for the 19-year-old the equivalent of around 154 million euros plus bonus payments, which seems too much for Liverpool.
Liverpool’s waning interest in Bellingham also corresponds to information from the English Times, indicating that coach Jurgen Klopp’s club will now focus on cheaper midfielders. Liverpool have come to the conclusion that the restructuring of the squad is so extensive that it is not possible to invest most of the money in a single player.
The Guardians also names Real Madrid, Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City as clubs that are still interested in Bellingham.
BVB, News: Niklas Süle is in danger of failing
The personnel situation of BVB in central defense before the Bundesliga game at VfB Stuttgart on Saturday threatens to deteriorate. Although the injured Nico Schlotterbeck started individual training on the pitch again on Tuesday, there are concerns about Niklas Süle.
The 27-year-old was absent from training, which is loud Ruhr news related to muscular problems. Süle is still under investigation, but his use against the Swabians is obviously questionable.
Should he also be absent, only Emre Can would be available as a temporary central defender in addition to Mats Hummels. But Can also has problems, at least like Mahmoud Dahoud he had to stop training early on Tuesday.
Fourth nominal central defender in the professional squad is Soumaila Coulibaly, who mostly plays in the U23s in the 3rd division and only appeared once for the first team – 17 minutes in the Champions League away game against FC Copenhagen last November.
BVB, News: Dortmund is holding further talks with Mats Hummels
BVB announced on Tuesday that Julian Brandt’s contract had been extended until 2026. In the near future, Borussia will announce further personnel decisions, said sporting director Sebastian Kehl.
However, it remains unclear when Mats Hummels, whose contract ends in the summer, will be ready. According to information from Ruhr news however, there was a 45-minute conversation with the central defender on Tuesday evening.
According to this, questions about the salary and the contract period are less important for the veteran – Dortmund allegedly wants to extend by one year for an annual salary of around seven million euros – but above all the sporting perspective. According to the newspaper, the talks are relaxed and it will take some time before both parties come to a decision.
BVB, News: Edin Terzic talks about Raphael Guerreiro

Coach Edin Terzic has now spoken about the advantages of the left-back, who has been playing in Dortmund since 2016 and is currently used in midfield: “If you look at his game shares over the last few years, he was always one of the key players,” said Terzic at the US Channel ESPN. “We know he can have a big impact on our game.”
With regard to Guerreiro’s future, Terzic did not let his cards be looked at: “I think he likes being with us. We have to discuss the rest behind closed doors and not over microphones.
