This season’s Bundesliga entered the winter break. Borussia Dortmund seem very confident to get this year’s title. This season’s squad are playing attractive football. However, some changes must be made to the team structure. With the opening of the transfer window, Sebastian Rode is the first of Borussia Dortmund Departures. The 28 years old is on loan for on form Eintrach Frankfurt. These are 3 probable Borussia Dortmund Departures in the winter transfer:
Julian Weigl to PSG / Arsenal / Man City
One of the most talented midfielders in Europe. Julian Weigl flourished at age 19 in Thomas Tuchel’s Borussia Dortmund. In fact, the young midfielder played almost every game in his first and second season in Dortmund. His vision for the game and passing abilities made him a target for Europe’s best clubs.
However, following an ankle injury in 2017, Julian Weigl took 98 days off to recover. Therefore, his performances became very inconsistent since. With the likes of Thomas Delaney, Mahmoud Dahoud and Axel Witsel as competition, Weigl is struggling to find himself a spot in Lucien Favre’s strategy. As a result, the German international might consider leaving Borussia Dortmund either to reconnect with former coach Thomas Tuchel or seek some Premier League experience in Arsenal or Manchester City.
Maximilian Philipp to Stuttgart
VfB Stuttgart is struggling to make in impact in the Bundesliga this season. Same thing for Maximilian Philipp. The young Borussia Dortmund forward is trying to regain confidence. Furthermore, with Paco Alcacer‘s current form, Philipp is expected to be the Spaniard sharpshooter’s competition.
So the forward might consider a move away from the Signal Iduna Park and VfB Stuttgart are keen to make a serious offer.
Christian Pulisic to Chelsea
Borussia Dortmund isn’t lacking any talent this season in the attack. With the leadership of Marco Reus, the inventiveness of Jadon Sancho and Alcacer’s clinical finishing, it has been a tough season so far for Christian Pulisic.
Therefore, the American is attracting interests from several European major clubs, with Chelsea on the lead. According to Kicker, Pulisic is discussing an agreement with the London Club for a 50M Euros move this season.
