I don’t believe that Dortmund are in worrying financial circumstances – not yet anyway. A loss to Napoli might tip the scales, however. Irrelevant of the footballing loss, it would be a loss of revenue that Dortmund is nearly dependent upon, and it might trigger a few scenarios that involve selling players.

Firstly, if Lewandowski would go anywhere other than to Bayern, they’d sell him in January to get some money, rather than let him go freely in the summer. If Lewandowski refuses to go anywhere else, and Dortmund are too far behind Bayern in the league, they may even consider letting him go to Bayern in January.

Secondly, if anyone (other than Bayern) tries to trigger the release clause in Reus’ contract, there will be a lot of drama – can’t let the fans think they’d sell a favourite star easily – but in the end they’d let him go. Their ideal customer would be Man Utd, who might be persuaded to commute it from a buy-out to a transfer and to part with Kagawa as a makeweight, at a low enough value to make a comfortable profit for Dortmund.

This could be the most interesting January for years.


Lewandowski is going nowhere in January. He's said so himself, nobody should call him because everything is already tied up nice and clean. He's not going to give up on a huge signing bonus for 6 months and Dortmund won't commit suicide by trying to integrate a new CF mid-season for pennies and dimes 6 months prior to the end of Lewandowski's contract. Common football sense 101 says he is going to sign his Bayern contract for next season in January!

The Reus - Kagawa swap is an interesting scenario down the road but nothing more than that. Furthermore Reus will not be leaving in January. No freaking chance. Nothing is going to happen in January at all! Letting go of Reus would cause an uproar in the entire club which could lead to a dangerous downward spiral, getting him to renew his contract or at least give up on his exit clause is the #1 priority of the BVB front office. Common football sense 101 says BVB will continue trying to get him to renew his contract. Should they fail he's going to leave in 2015 and not a single transfer window earlier.

More than one player might leave Dortmund at the end of the season but I expect January to be very boring, at least regarding Borussia Dortmund. All the rumors are tabloid fabrication and Bullshite.



Ahh by the way, Klopp was apparently watching the Romania - Greece game live.

Snip...


I stand corrected – guilty of some embarrassingly sloppy analysis. I had heard of the Reus clause not becoming effective until 2015, and had forgotten it, and while the Lewandowski factors and not yet known, I had overlooked the signing-on fee that he would get when he moves to another club at the end of his Dortmund contract. The likelihood that he is now looking forward to a large signing-on fee when he moves in the summer is very high, and that will leave him with no wish to move anywhere in January. So, yes, on reflection, I’d agree that Dortmund may not be able to do very much in the January transfer window.

Hummels out for 2 months, Schmelzer out for 3 weeks... We are in some serious trouble and the only way to save the season is to put all our effort into the two reamining Champions League games in the group.

If we dont win those two, then we need to win the Europa League and finish second in the league. And maybe make a good run in the DfB Pokal. Anyway, we are f*cked.

I heard that Piszczek had a friendly yesterday (against Panderborn), don't tell me Kloppo is planning to rush him for this weekend's match after such a lengthy injury? :|

Edit: Sorry Borusse, but was that from an official statement regarding the length? Terrible news :(

Winning the Europa League can be just as beneficial to BvB as winning the UCL, maybe not money wise but coefficient wise. Look at how teams like Benfica and Porto have stayed as top seeds for so many seasons.

Aaaaaaand Dortmund signed Manuel Friedrich on a free.

Not going to help against us, though, unless they want an out-of-form defender to play against the European champions during his first week at the club.

I was wrong a few days ago. I thought they were talking about Arne Friedrich who by the way retired back in June :oops:

It's a decent signing from the free agency and he knows BL and CL. Not bad at all
