We're apparently close to signing Pedrinho, if it's true then we're probably already preparing for Pulisic's departure. There is a 1% chance we're going to sell Pulisic to Chelsea in winter, but I doubt it. Also Pedrinho doesn't seem like a strong enough signing as a Pulisic's replacement, I think we're still going to go winger-shopping in the summer.

It looks like your board realised that depth could be a key factor in order to win the league and decided to make an extra effort and spend some cash in winter. :x

It looks like we're keeping Pulisic till the summer which is a good thing.

Guerreiro has given strong arguments to Favre this week. Assisted the derby goal, scored two against Monaco. He should become our first choice left winger till the end of the year. Pulisic and Larsen still not looking great, hopefully they improve after the winter break. Our goal is to win 3 remaining games, should be doable.

What do you think is Guerreiro's best position?

He has great technique, TOP3 in the team in my opinion behind Sancho and Reus. He likes to play quick short passes in tight spaces and also has good vision. He is proving he can score goals as well, actually his shooting technique is really nice. I think his perfect position would be a "false left winger" where he would move into midfield very often during the game. So kind of what he did under Tuchel and also now under Favre. They both saw how much attacking potential Guerreiro has.

Kind of a waste to play him as left back, this position limits him a lot.

Guerreiro played from start yesterday and proved his good form, assisted a goal and was very active throughout the match. It was obvious imidiately after he joined Dortmund that he has great talent but he struggled because of many reasons. Now he's finally showing that he can still become an amazing player.

Also Paco Alcacer had his best game for Dortmund when playing from the start. He was everywhere, playing one-twos, dribbling, passing, scoring. It was great.

That's why it's even more annoying we kept the game so close till the end, we should have scored more goals yesterday. But I can live with that as long as they wins keep coming.

Getting tired of looking at Pulisic play. He's so dissapointing this season:

Can't see tweet? Click here!

He couldn't even dribble effectively like he did earlier in the season. Is he so in his head thinking about the transfer? Difficult to say. He'll stay in Dortmund for the rest of the season so I hope the winter break will help him regain his form. We actually need him, we can't be playing with only Sancho and Guerreiro for the entire season + Larsen who is also not doing that well lately.

If Pulisic keeps playing this way and then we sell him for something like 50 million euros, it woud be absolutely ridiculous.

Almost certain now that Pulisic is going to Chelsea. Still not sure whether he'll go in the winter or in the summer with transfer fee of around 50 million euros. Very good deal for Dortmund and a risk for Chelsea, Pulisic hasn't played a strong month of football in 2018 and it seemed like he wasn't giving his best as his mind was already set on a move to Premier League, so only logical choice was to sell him. If he's ever going to become a great player, he needs a new environment.

My personal opinion is that he'll be another Jesus Navas, maybe a bit better but I just don't see him becoming a TOP10 winger in the next 4-5 years. His biggest flaw is that he doesn't have the vision and feel for the game to make optimal decisions on the pitch, I doubt that it will change. You can improve this part of your game but mostly you have to be born with it or train it from a very young age.

Well he was never going to make it as a world class winger to begin with. He's really just a standard, end-product and non-dictating (but very fast) #10, so not surprised he can't keep that consistency on the wings. Still the best US export ever though, if he's deployed well I'm sure he can keep up relatively high end product numbers.

Personally I wouldn't have minded him as a squad player at Bayern (except now we have Gnabry), but never strongly advocated him as one of our many hypothetical Robbery replacements.

On the other hand I really believe that he is going to be a good piece of business for Chelsea.

P.S what is the possibility of Dortmund screwing our COH transfer by asking Chelsea for him ?

There is some possibility of that but difficult to say how big. I'd say no more than 30%.

It's official - Pulisic goes to Chelsea, loan for half a season (so he stays with us till the end of the season) and in the summer Chelsea will pay us 64 million euros! Great deal, couldn't ask for more really. Good luck Pulisic on finding your best game and hopefully we will make good use of the money.

A big shame for both BvB and the BuLi

Sancho may be one hit wonder... mark my words that bvb will regret it

The problem for BVB and other Bundesliga clubs excluding Bayern, is that players keep treating them as a stepping stone. Do you think they wouldn't have liked Lewandowski, Hummels, Goetze and Dembele to stay? But what can they do when the player expresses a wish to leave, do what Uli suggested and force him to stay, only to see him leave on a free transfer a year later? What they're doing is cashing in on players and using that money to get quality replacements. That requires excellent scouting and negotiation but they've been doing this for years now. It's their way to survive, and they're doing it better than any other club of a comparable prestige/statue.

True, but this is also the first big transfer in years where we're selling someone who isn't even a starting player. And now we can spend more money for replacements because of our very healthy financial condition. So all is well.

And the situation won't change over night. We have to keep improving step by step, year by year, month by month until, maybe in 10, 20 or who knows, 50 years we will become a European giant and players will see us as the final destination club.
