Borussia Dortmund wants to compete with Bayern Munich for Borussia Mönchengladbach midfielder Florian Neuhaus

A trend is developing...if Florian Neuhaus torches your club on the pitch, they want to buy him a few days later.

Borussia Mönchengladbach midfielder Florian Neuhaus is becoming a very popular figure on the transfer market.

Bayern Munich has been heavily linked to the 23-year-old former 1860 Munich youth player, but now Borussia Dortmund would like to throw its black-and-yellow hat into the ring according to Sport1.

There is one hurdle BVB would have to clear, however, and it is a big one: the finances.

With a release clause in the neighborhood of €40 million, Neuhaus carries a hefty price tag in the COVID-19 Era:

According to SPORT1 information, Borussia Dortmund is hot for the 23-year-old midfield star from Borussia Mönchengladbach and would like to sign him next summer.

The problem from BVB’s point of view: Currently, Neuhaus is too expensive for BVB! From a financial point of view, reaching the Champions League is all the more important for the current seventh in the table. Without participation in the premier class, BVB would be missing TV and sponsorship income of 40 million euros.

The one thing that both Bayern Munch and Borussia Dortmund have in common in this alleged pursuit is that Neuhaus torched them both. Hey, if you can’t beat ‘em, get ‘em to join you...or something like that.
