After the 1:5 debacle against FC Bavaria Munich, Borussia Munich has slipped into fourth place in the Bundesliga. The Gladbachers have lost four games, and the trend is downward. Does Borussia have to fear the departure of several service providers?
If Gladbach misses the qualification for the European Cup as in the last two years, according to “Sport Image” Thorgan Hazard, Matthias Ginter and Denis Zakaria are probably no longer to be held in the summer. All three want to play internationally, Hazard allegedly even ties his stay to the entrance to the royal class.
The interested parties may be queuing if the trio actually comes to the market: Hazard has been linked to Borussia Dortmund again and again recently. The Belgian could inherit the divorcing Christian Pulisic from the BVB. Ginter should be on the card at several top English clubs. Zakaria, too, has stirred up aspirations in the Premier League.
If Gladbach manages to stop the negative trend of recent weeks, it should also improve the chances in contract poker with Jonas Hofmann.
The middle fielder, under Coach Dieter Hecking, an important pillar in the game of Borussia, shall extend its contract to 2020 only as soon as possible. According to media reports, the 26-year-old former Dortmund has attracted interest from Tottenham Hotspur.
