A few days ago, the Borussia Dortmund team seemed completely and completely competitive. With the exception of the possible departures of the reservists, the BVB would have done its work for the summer break. But there is a player to whom all plans could be suspended. Because the Dortmund Portuguese, Raphael Guerreiro go, Borussia may have to reload again.
There is a lot of news around Raphael Guerreiro for the moment. The first is that the 25-year-old should extend his contract and expire next year. Otherwise, Guerreiro could leave Dortmund next summer, namely a free transfer. At the same time, there are still rumors about potential customers for the Portuguese. Hans-Joachim Watzke called for a quick decision.
A departure of the Portuguese could again make a big deal
To make matters worse, the midfielder fails for weeks due to a muscle injury. Even with a contract extension, Dortmund could not plan with him then first. This is why BVB may have to look for another new signature. Especially when Guerreiro should leave, there are not too many alternatives, as supposed.
Brandt and Hazard planned differently
The fact that Guerreiro played such an important role in the team before was due to planning with new entrants. One is Thorgan Hazard, who has already crossed the left side of Borussia Mönchengladbach. But we do not know yet where it will be used by coach Lucien Favre. In preparation, the Allrounder has come more often to the right, the center of the storm is also an option.
The former Leverkusen Julian Brandt is also flexible.
Hazard recommended for Dortmundern rather than for the right side
Brandt played more often in the Werkself midfield left. But currently, the 23-year-old is still injured. After his return, Brandt would play a more central role in the 4-1-4-1 system. The most likely variant is that the young, with Marco Reus, would be the center of the center and that there would be a Torgefahr. So, it's not an option for the left.
Otherwise, only the other options remain in the team, but not all of them have been scheduled as a regular player. For example, Jacob Bruun Larsen is still too inexperienced at the age of 20. Even though he has always shown good approaches, but for a regular spot left, this will not be enough. Even Mario Götze, who has crossed the left wing for many years, instead replaces the center of attack.
So, there is a void in the team if Guerreiro has to leave the club. If the Portuguese recover quickly from his injury and extend his contract, no action is necessary. Otherwise, BVB takes money once again. Because to be a serious candidate for the title, every team position must be filled with the absolute best players.
