Leipzig coach Marco Rose comments on Reus transfer rumors

The transfer window in the European leagues is open. Who goes where? Which transfers are fixed? What are the rumours? The news and rumors of January 24th.

Marco Reus

The BVB captain has been repeatedly associated with a departure from Dortmund in recent weeks, and RB Leipzig has also been mentioned as a possible destination.

RB coach Marco Rose can at least make friends with a potential commitment from Reus. “I’ve heard that too now,” Rose said at a press conference on Monday when journalists asked about the rumors circulating. “Reus is a great guy, a great captain, a really great footballer. I’ll leave everything else to you.”

Leipzig’s sports director Max Eberl was similarly open to a change. “In general, free transfer players have found a very large market. If players are free transfers, then you should at least deal with each one,” said Eberl, with whom Reus had once advised Borussia Mönchengladbach.

Ivan Fresneda

The transfer of the defender to BVB is imminent. The local newspaper Diario de Valladolid has now published the first details regarding the transfer fee that BVB would have to pay to Real Valladolid.

Accordingly, both clubs would have agreed on a maximum total of 15 million euros. Dortmund would have to pay a fixed amount of ten million euros, another five million euros would be paid as a bonus.

In addition, according to the report, BVB plans to loan Fresneda directly back to Valladolid by next summer. In this case, a penalty clause should be used, according to which a certain amount will be deducted from the fee to be paid for each game that the full-back no longer plays with the Spaniards.

Ondrej Duda

Even before the winter break, the offensive player was only used as a joker, meanwhile both sides are said to have agreed to end the cooperation.

According to information from Gianluca Di Marzio, the 28-year-old playmaker is about to move to Hellas Verona in Serie A. A loan deal is planned, with a purchase option of 2.5 million euros being anchored. Duda’s contract with Cologne runs until 2024.

Frank Lampard

Frank Lampard has been sacked as Everton manager. The Toffees, second to bottom in the Premier League after 20 match days, reacted to the disappointing course of the season with the last ten competitive games without a win.

The 106-time national player Lampard (44) started his job at the traditional club from Liverpool just under a year ago on January 31, 2022. A successor is still unknown. Initially, Paul Tait and Leighton Baines will lead the training.

Maximo Perrone

The 20-year-old will join Manchester City. The Skyblues announced this on their website last night. Perrone has signed a contract with City until 2028. According to reports, the Premier League club will pay around nine million euros to Velez Sarsfield in return.
