Dortmund is a selling club. Their inability to hold on to key players has cost them dearly, especially in Europe. The Ruhr side will never win titles in Europe as long as they keep selling their best players.
As the January transfer window closed, most Bundesliga clubs were comparatively modest in their wheeling and dealing, with the exception of Borussia Dortmund. But there were two late arrivals from the Premier League.
Ousmane Dembele's desired move to Barcelona appears to be all but a done deal. However, Borussia Dortmund's chairman, Hans-Joachim Watzke has stressed that while a deal is close, it hasn't yet been finalized.
There are growing signs that Borussia Dortmund are about to part company with talented young forward Ousmane Dembele for a tidy profit. There is also an indication that the player's thoughts may already be elsewhere.
RB Leipzig say he's staying put, but rumors that Naby Keita will move to Liverpool in January persist. Even if the German side hold on to the midfielder until the summer, can the Bundesliga really keep losing its stars?
