Latest Transfer News – Does Borussia Dortmund have the Cheapest Man In France?
Boring football news stories tend to dominate the headlines on websites throughout the UK, while in France it’s of utmost importance that a new player arrives to help lift the national side. The latest transfer news in Europe is littered with errors, misprints and wrongs, which often lead to outrage and a great deal of debate. The summer transfer window is one of the most active in Europe, with many top players leaving big clubs in search of new challenges and wages. However, there are some transfer stories which have the potential to rock the football world, by linking up one of the greatest stars in English football with a European powerhouse club. Here we take a look at why Borussia Dortmund is looking to strengthen their attacking options and why their target is Harry Kane, who has been linked with a switch to Bordeaux.
After initially leading the English football league in scoring form, scoring twice in each of the last three matches, Borussia Dortmund have hit a difficult patch in their season, following the sacking of manager Harry Red Knapp. This, coupled with the emergence of Manchester United as a potential title challenger, has seen many fans calling for the much-coveted striker, Robin van Persie, to leave the club. However, despite the lack of games for the Dutch international, Bordeaux are hoping to lure him away from the heart of French culture, by dangling a lucrative offer in front of the striker.
In recent seasons, both Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid have offered big money deals to any outfield player who wanted to move to either of these European giants, with the Blues even offering Zlatan Ibikran outside a deal worth up to double the sale price of the player. However, following their disappointing last-gasp defeat at the hands of arch-rivals PSV Eindhoven in the Netherlands, many pundits across the globe believe that Paris Saint-Germain is in the driver’s seat to win the league title this season. The big Belgian side have already cooled off their transfer plans, opting against making any major purchases during the summer transfer window, instead relying on the promising talents of Kevin Volland to provide the attacking spark they’ve been searching for over the past few months. With one final league match to come before the season comes to a close, it remains to be seen whether or not Kevin Volland will have enough left in the tank to fire Borussia Dortmund into the playoffs.
