Borussia Dortmund could be facing major squad changes due to their lack of success this season, despite spending heavily on transfers last year.
Dortmund had a promising start to 2023, but their recent performances have been disappointing, including a Champions League exit to Chelsea, a DFB-Pokal quarter-final loss to RB Leipzig, and a heavy defeat to Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga title race.
Despite being only two points behind Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga, Dortmund’s inconsistent play makes it unlikely they will catch up in the remaining weeks of the season.
Despite spending over €100 million on new transfers and bringing in Niklas Sule on a free from Bayern, Dortmund’s problems have persisted, including a lack of consistency and underperforming in important games.
As a result, a summer clear-out may be necessary, with several veterans approaching the end of their contracts, and some players not fitting well, leading to a need for funds to refresh the squad.
