Borussia Mönchengladbach is already threatened with the loss of some top performers in January. The decision seems to have been made for one thing: Yann Sommer apparently joins Manchester United in January.
Ramy Bensebaini, Marcus Thuram, Christoph Kramer and Lars Stindl have two things in common: they all play for Borussia Mönchengladbach and their current contract there ends at the end of the season. This threatens Borussia with a super meltdown. Gladbach already has to weigh up who should be made money in January for a low fee and who should be gambled with for a new working paper until the end.
At least for Yann Sommer, the decision was made according to the picture. Accordingly, the Gladbach keeper is facing a "flash change" to Manchester United. The Red Devils are said to have re-contacted Sommer and appear to have identified the 33-year-old as David de Gea's successor; his contract is about to expire and is apparently not going to be extended. In the case of Sommer, the trend in the past few weeks seemed to be around 50:50. With renewed interest from Manchester, the pendulum seems to have swung in the direction of a Gladbach farewell. In any case, the foals are ready to talk. "We weigh everything carefully and are prepared in any case," said sports director Roland Virkus of the picture.
