Boring preseason? Not quite. The Yellowwallpod returns to discuss €30 million record signing André Schürrle and two friendlies against the Manchester clubs that took place in China.
Borussia Dortmund first training session will be on 4 July. According to a release issued by the team on Monday, BVB will play their first friendly during summer preparation against local club Spvgg Erkenschwick. The Black and Yellows will also take a trip to China in July, where they are expected to face both Manchester United and Manchester City.
It’s official. The clubs announced on Thursday that Ilkay Gündogan will be a Manchester City player after his five-year stint in Dortmund. BVB will receive a reported €30 million fee for the injured German international, who had just one year left on his contract. But the day Ilkay Gündogan leaves will always be a sad one for Borussia Dortmund.
Ilkay Gündogan’s departure after the end of this season seems imminent, as German football Magazine “Kicker” reports that the 25-year-old German international won’t extend beyond 2017 with Borussia Dortmund.
