So....
According to goal and some other sources, Kevin PB wants to leave Milan because he is not happy with the rotating carussel Allegri has put him in.

I have quite a feelign about this ^^
TKroos (Bayern München) 3 years ago
What about Rooney? If he and lewa wants to leave just swap them But I don't realy now if you have the money to pay his wages
Steveex (Borussia Dortmund) 3 years ago
Nope, can't afford him
MarkoPollo (Borussia Dortmund) 3 years ago
KPB, yes! Rooney, heeeeells no!
Steveex (Borussia Dortmund) 3 years ago
Haha Schalke fans are happy about Draxler extending until 2018....

If they miss out champions league in the play offs everything can go veeeeery quickly
Khaotik (Borussia Dortmund) 3 years ago
But.... How would we know....
Steveex (Borussia Dortmund) 3 years ago
Apparently 40m clause....    Okay then
Steveex (Borussia Dortmund) 3 years ago
Hahahaha lewandowksi in a Bild interview about the harsh Ramos in the semis: "he has been in Madrid for 8 years and hasn't reached the final once"
TKroos (Bayern München) 3 years ago
Hahaha thank you lewandowski!
Fabiusmaximus (Bayern München) 3 years ago
Ah ramos.... If you lose the final he will strike back for sure. I remember last season as we won against them by penalty shoot out, neuer said after the game: I didn't know that ramos takes his penalties like this. After we lost against chelsea ramos answered: I didn't know that neuer is so good in finals.
Steveex (Borussia Dortmund) 3 years ago
Well.... Ramos started this one. Neuer shouldn't have said anything to begin with
3 years ago
Neuer did say that and Ramos retaliated after Germany lost in the semi-finals against Italy, and when Bayern lost to Chelsea in the champions league finals.

He's a very awkward character this Ramos - very passionate too. I have to say that despite is eagerness to get into trouble, he's one of my favourite players. Don't hate me guys
Fabiusmaximus (Bayern München) 3 years ago
I think its familiar for fans to be very associated with players from their favorite club who are playing passionately for their team. The love for your club is not often displayed by players themselves and I think if a player really connects himself with his team and kisses the badge on his jersey out of love and not out of love for money, he is always loved by the supporters and always hated by opposing fans. To name them großkreutz, effenberg, kahn, schweinsteiger, etc.

But to come back to our original topic: lewa also didn't have to say that
Steveex (Borussia Dortmund) 3 years ago
Ramos didn't have to try to disfigure him so in my eyes, they're somehow even
Fabiusmaximus (Bayern München) 3 years ago
Well I think they were even directly after the match. Lewandowski bitchslapped Ramos with four goals in the first game and he paid it back in some kinda strange form. Not in sporting terms
3 years ago
Ramos and Lewa made up after the match and shook hands/hugged. I find it pretty strange that he's rubbing it in now. If anything, that shows Lewa's poor sportsmanship.

@Fabiusmaximus

Yes, I can relate to what you said. I love players who show their undying loyalty towards my club. I respect such players from other clubs as well. Loyalty is not so common in our modern day football, so that when a player does prove their loyalty, he is easily loved and respected
Ramin85 (Bayern München) 3 years ago
I lay the poor sportsmanship on Ramos, sorry. When lewa shook hands with him after the match, he was total class, I'm 110% sure if it was the other way around Ramos wouldn't even come close to shaking Lewa's hands.

Ramos obviously not only plays dirty, but he can't take a joke either
3 years ago
I don't think Lewa would have shook Ramos' hands if he was knocked out of the champions league either. Yes, Ramos has been a poor sport in the past, but when it comes to not taking a joke softly, you have to consider the context and his cultural roots as well.

Lewa obviously doesn't know what the champions league finals means to not just Ramos, but many of Real Madrid's longest serving members. Just watching Ramos cry after our exit should be enough to persuade anyone how much Ramos values this competition.

You also have to consider that he's from Seville. Like Spaniards in general, they're not the type to take insults lightly. What Neuer said wasn't necessary in my opinion.

Not saying Ramos retaliating was the right course of action either
Turkiish 3 years ago
Lewondowski and neur can also dream of playing the final of world cup and winning it, 10000x more important than champions league
Steveex (Borussia Dortmund) 3 years ago
Neuer will lift the WC trophy soon enough though....

And White, saying Ramos potentially loves this competition more or has a higher meaning for him than the others is just not true. Anyone in Dortmund would have cried as well. Hell, in München there would have been a couple of suicides if they somehow got kicked out against Barca.

And on what are you basing Lewa wouldn't have shooken his hand in that scenario? After the ellbowing of course not but in a scenario Ramos played fair and Madrid advanced definitely. He is a humble, fair sportsman, even though his agent is not, he has his values.
Fabiusmaximus (Bayern München) 3 years ago
I think it's 10001x more important.

@Steveex

The Champions League is seen differently by Madridista's than it is by any other fan base in the world. I cannot prove this scientifically, but I'm almost 100% sure of it. La Decima is an obsession - an obsession that has consumed the longest serving Madridista's (Ramos included) for 12 years. This is why I say this.

And I said I 'don't think' regarding Lewa's handshake. Remember, once the context changes, so does human behavior at times. It is much easier to be noble in victory, and more difficult in the face of defeat. I do not say he wouldn't have shaken his hand if he had lost the tie for certain, but there's a good reason for me to believe otherwise. Heck, I don't even think Mourinho would have kissed Ferguson's ass to such an extent if Manchester United knocked us out in the QF'. I don't mean to take a dig at Lewa
Steveex (Borussia Dortmund) 3 years ago
Wow according to the dfl boss, there will be a new tv-contract in a season or two. Which now that I come to think of it had already been signed by the beginning of the season about the rights of the bundesliga between Telekom And sky.
There will be around 600m for the 36 clubs instead of the 412m we had up till now.
Just imagine the possibilities for the littlier clubs
Jeroen (Barcelona) 3 years ago
Ah, sweet! I bet the income has risen that much thanks to international viewers coming by the millions to watch the Bundesliga. And that's largely thanks to two teams
Steveex (Borussia Dortmund) 3 years ago
If I remember correctly, it was because the Sky contract expired and Telekom wanted to get in as well. To prevent this, Sky made the better offer and got all the rights
MuellersEleven (Bayern München) 3 years ago
This contract is 1 year old. The money comes mainly from domestic broadcasting. Only roughly 1/10 is from international contracts. It has nothing to do with recent success or a larger international broadcasting of our league. Though that has increased considerably in the last 5 years
Jeroen (Barcelona) 3 years ago
Even better. I guess that means that the contract after this one will be an even bigger one. Let's hope the money won't just be used to buy players, but to keep them in the first place though
Steveex (Borussia Dortmund) 3 years ago
Next Rumor:


Link: www.pasionlibertadores.com/fanaticos/Borussia-Dort...

Does somebody know Bernard? I know I should know him since I often watch Copa Libertadores and a bit of brazilian league, but I don't know this one.
Price tag: 20 million.

According to this note, Zorc is already in Belho Horizonte to discuss the deal.

The next Amoroso?
MarkoPollo (Borussia Dortmund) 3 years ago
Kid looks incredible on youtube videos. From some insiders that know him better, he's apparently very hard working on top of being a great play maker with skills and pace and has added a clinical finishing ability to his season this year. Susi pulling an ace out of his sleeve?

Young, unproven South American's coming to Europe for the first time always make me a little uneasy, but we had great luck with Barrios last time, so why not I guess...
Steveex (Borussia Dortmund) 3 years ago
But 20 million is quite a lot.... I would just rather buy kagawa back
MarkoPollo (Borussia Dortmund) 3 years ago
Exactly, makes me uneasy too. But maybe he's the real deal. In Susi we trust.
Jeroen (Barcelona) 3 years ago
I have never heard of him before. Then again, I hardly watch any South American football at all, except for international games. I didn't know Oscar either until he went to Chelsea, thought he was ridiculously expensive, but he seems to be worth it to my surprise.

But it seems not like Dortmund's policy to spend this kind of money on a young talent from Brazil, not accustomed to Germany. If he doesn't immediately fit in and do well, it will be a disastrous transfer
Anyu89 (Borussia Dortmund) 3 years ago


-super fast
-equally strong and clinical with both feet
-great finisher
-with an eye for his colleagues
-great positioning (leading to goals by headers despite his 162 cm....)

I can see him tear s**t up with Reus! They'll be too fast to handle
Jeroen (Barcelona) 3 years ago
The star in that youtube vid is the guy with the eternal smile and long curly hair though. I wonder what he's called ^_^

But to be honest: I can name you guys several little magicians who were brilliant in South America who never made it in Europe, not even a bit like Robinho. Matías Fernandez is one, then there was Andrés D'Alessandro, Kleberson is another, Diego Buonanotte yet another. And those are just the ones from the top of my head
Anyu89 (Borussia Dortmund) 3 years ago
And Kagawa was a Japanese "nobody" from Japan's second league.... Not saying I am sure Bernard would be a hit, if he came at all, but I wouldn't be surprised either
Jeroen (Barcelona) 3 years ago
Shinji was €350, 000 while this guy would cost more than fifty times as much.... That's why I think it's just a rumour. We're not Chelsea. If he would've done this in Germany, it would be absolutely possible though
Steveex (Borussia Dortmund) 3 years ago
Just get shinji back!
Anyu89 (Borussia Dortmund) 3 years ago
Oh yeah, I see, we're not worried about his talent but his price tag.... 20 mil is a bit much :/
Jeroen (Barcelona) 3 years ago
Yeah, exactly. If Brazilian clubs would still sell their talents for the prices they went for a decade ago, he'd cost €2-3m. But now with Lucas Moura, Oscar, Willian etc. Being bought by oil sheikhs and corrupt Russians, prices have gone up tenfold there...

And the next note:
"Dortmund? That would make sense. I've been following them and must admit they've developed greatly"

And some other stuff.

Oh look at that, how many players want to come to us
MarkoPollo (Borussia Dortmund) 3 years ago


This dude claims that he met KDB in Bremen today and after getting asked where he'll be playing next year he answered:"Expect me at Dortmund."

Take it or leave it, just read it in a German forum. Not sure how to feel about that
Steveex (Borussia Dortmund) 3 years ago
I think he's coming...
Jeroen (Barcelona) 3 years ago
Hooray!

You'll all be convinced of his qualities soon enough. I think the only thing standing in the way of immediate loving will be his price tag. It's probably going to be around €15m, and for a player who is IMO very similar in style and total quality as Ilkay, that's not cheap for Dortmund. Then again, Ilkay was a fantasticly cheap transfer
DeDeus (Borussia Dortmund) 3 years ago
Today kicker reports pretty much the opposite but I wouldn't really want him on loan anyway.


Link: www.kicker.de/news/fussball/bundesliga/startseite/...
Jeroen (Barcelona) 3 years ago
He apparently spoke to Bild and said he admired Dortmund since he came to Germany and especially (obviously) our Champions League performances. He also said the style we have here suits his own (which is definitely true, trust me) and he'd see what would happen because it all depended on what Chelsea have in store for him.

About his playing style: it is quick and direct but smart and composed at the same time. He's of course an extremely good passer and crosser of the ball, has a great long shot (with both feet), reads the game especially well and with those assets he's able to create many chances for the team. He works hard and has improved massively physically. In every aspect, I see great similarities with Ilkay Gündogan, as I have repeatedly said before.

Oh, and he is also an excellent professional. In his last year at Genk, it was already decided he would go to Chelsea, but that was his best year despite the fact many players would not be motivated to give it their all in the small Belgian competition. He was the key figure in Genk's trophy year too, along with Thibaut Courtois (Chelsea GK on loan to Atlético, the GK I hope that will replace Valdés at Barça), Jelle Vossen and Christian Benteke
Jeroen (Barcelona) 3 years ago
Watch these and see how he's a pale white version of Ilkay with red hair



@Genk and for Belgium



@Werder
HaRdCoReMaN (Chelsea) 3 years ago
He doesn't speak german though
[account-removed] 3 years ago
I don't think that Chelsea will sell such a player. They want to make a loan business and it's most likely that he will play for Leverkusen next season as Chelsea is interested in Schürrle. Could be some big deal...
Jeroen (Barcelona) 3 years ago
Yes he does. He's been at Werder for a year now. A close friend of mine went to school with him and we are all taught German here. Besides, if you speak Dutch, German isn't difficult to understand. Speaking it is a different matter, but making yourself understandable is easy too
[account-removed] 3 years ago
Hope you guys sign Kevin Debruyne and proves himself even more (if possible) he's been easily one of the most noticable players in the Bundesliga this season. Then Abramovic will maybe start to give our youngsters a turn. The boy oozes with class
Steveex (Borussia Dortmund) 3 years ago
God damn it, herrman extended at gladbach -. -    Oh and the gunners interested in pisczek...
OddSpud (Borussia Dortmund) 3 years ago
I don't see Piszczek leaving us for Arsenal....

There should be a law against poaching players from a team who reached champions league final god damn
Jeroen (Barcelona) 3 years ago
Especially if that team might not even play Champions League next year. By now Dortmund are far better than most clubs and still the media portray us as the 'lucky minnows'
Xgooner4everX (Arsenal) 3 years ago
Noooo, I don't want Piszczek, he's an amazing right back but I don't want your team to break it up that much. Hope leandowskis agent see some sense and sign the god damn contract
UWMike (Borussia Dortmund) 3 years ago
No offense to anyone, but I think that Arsenal are one team that we don't have to worry about stealing our players...
PaRa (Liverpool) 3 years ago
The only way I see Piszczek leaving is for more money

Steveex (Borussia Dortmund) 3 years ago
So Bild writing on the Bernard topic as well but they think he would cost "only" 12m.

On top of that, bold claims we have a huge interest in Jackson Martinez whose price tag is 20m.
Porto seal is on him, so almost guaranteed quality
MarkoPollo (Borussia Dortmund) 3 years ago
Jackson Martinez would be the bomb.... Expect for he has a 60m EUR buyout clause.

On transfermarkt. De, people that know Bernard are really raving about him. Fast, skillful, hard working on both offensive and defensive, quick transitioning, mentored by Ronaldinho! etc. Sounds like the real deal, but you never know with South Americans and how they adapt to European football. 12m sounds much better though!
LumpOfCelery (Chelsea) 3 years ago
Bernard is incredible, I honestly rate his potential to be as good as Oscar's potential, but he is very promising imho, 12m would be a steal
Steveex (Borussia Dortmund) 3 years ago
Oh and I got the dreaded mail saying I was unlucky not to get a ticket

Whilst some bayern asshole posted in the Dortmund site on Facebook saying he got some tickets and rubbing it in our noses. He won't come out there alive...

Oh if you put it that way then I guess it's ok
Jeroen (Barcelona) 3 years ago
Isn't it great the season isn't over yet and we're already in the heat of transfer debates? I'm not being a cynical douche here, I genuinely am happy for that.

I wasn't too concerned when Nuri left or when Kagawa went to United, but when Götze left to Bayern when we were on the brink of qualifying for the Champions League final, I really feared it would start a horrible torrent of outflowing players. The way so many great up and coming powers have been destroyed in the past. Unlike certain clubs, our management realizes it's crucial to find replacements for an important players lost, and I'm thrilled to hear we're linked with a lot of really big talents. I don't think it would be wise spending half our transfer budget on a kid from Brazil who had one good season, but the fact we ARE linked with such talent is a very relieving sign.

I just love the love for our club from the management. The fact they're not gonna' sit on the €37m from Götze and use it to enrich themselves is admirable. What a huge difference with the management of so many big clubs, who see the whole club as a way to launder their dirty money (or a distraction to not pay taxes at all), to ditch debt from other companies they own in or just as a plaything because they're so bored collecting all that money spouting out of the ground in the form of oil.

Again: some clubs have had a similar great track record and looked like they were breaking through into the world's established top clubs, but then were fished dry by the bigger & richer. It doesn't look like that'll happen to BVB. And I'm very, very happy about it.

So, let's just buy that Messi kid, that Ronaldo bloke and be done with it
Fiasc0 (Eintracht Braunschweig) 3 years ago
No Jeroen, Messi, CR7 + Reus, Hummels & Klopp it wouldnt fit for DF mate - keep that in mind.

Well, BVB is showing an attractive(entertaining) AND succesful footy in the past. Now this finish ahead. BVB presents a pretty grass for any balldancer on this planet, let´s see who´s the Footymachine for the next season.

(PS. : that Götze deal.... Nah - forget it)

Steveex (Borussia Dortmund) 3 years ago
Well.... If the price tag on Bernard is "only" 12m I say lets go for him if our magical trio sees that potential in him. I mean he can kick the ball apparently. With reaching the final we've got enough money to allow us one risky transfer. If he somehow is a new Kagawa or slightly worse than him, he could still help us.

Lets not forget he comes from the same club Dede came from he might have asked him or even maybe Dede was behind all this
