Chief Executive confirms world class midfielder on way to sign for Chelsea

Borussia Dortmund chief executive Hans Joachim Watzke has admitted Chelsea target Ilkay Gundogan will leave this summer.

Gundogan has already admitted that he wants a fresh challenge after rejecting a contract offer from the German side.

And this statement from the club’s chief executive points heavily to the star being one of the players to leave the Westfalenstadion.

Watzke told Reuters: “There will be no major overhaul. Last year one player left [Robert Lewandowski who joined Bayern Munich], this year it is probably two.

“Everything else is still open. So yes, there will be change but not a complete overhaul of the team.

“As for any of the other cases, I will not talk about names.” © 2017 Frontier Theme
