Who would want to leave Borussia Dortmund? They have the best fans in football with the highest average attendance in Europe – the most important thing for a football club. 

They have a fantastic football academy, which has carried some of their very own great players including Mario Gotze, Marco Reus, Kevin Großkreut, Nuri Sahin and Marcel Schmelzer. The Borussians have a talented manager who does things in a unique way to get the best out of his players.

Dortmund have already lost some key players in the last year, notably Shinji Kagawa and Nuri Sahin to big money transfers. However, none of these players have come close to their form they showed in Dortmund. 

Nuri Sahin might have even realized his mistake, and Dortmund welcomed him back with open arms with a loan deal in January. Still, he is not the same player.

Borussia Dortmund carry out a very fluent philosophy in both their on-field and off-field actions which allows their players to enjoy their football with freedom. The result of this is that they play the most attractive football in Europe.

With transfer speculations heating up, Borussia Dortmund are constantly in the news, however, not for their benefits. There’s probably a list of five major players who are on the radar of richer clubs. 

Now that Mario Gotze has said goodbye, Robert Lewandowski and co are billed to follow. 

In addition to this football shame, there is no doubt that with their current team Borussia Dortmund can become the best team in the world. Much like Barcelona, their inner strength has come from the youth academy.  

If financial fair play was in play, Dortmund would look streaks ahead at this stage. Now with the departure of Mario Gotze to main rivals Bayern Munich, it all sounds rather hurtful as the Borussian faithful might feel. 

The fans own them – a model to all clubs in the world who seek to defeat them off the pitch with money rather than football. While teams will be adding strength to their clubs, they will be happy to at least breathe a sigh of relief by weakening a daunting Dortmund side.
