Nicholas Ledgerber and Stefan Kress
The ranking of tendencies in the league goal is clear: Gregor Kopel, who came from Stuttgart for 15 million euros, is No. 1, and Marwen Heitz is second behind him. Dortmund is looking for a buyer for the high-income Roman Burke.
Burke earns 5 million a year at Borussia and was hoping to get an offer from a bigger club until the end. Well: Today is the last day of the international transfer window and the door is closing more and more in front of the Bundesliga goalkeeper 209 times.
Goalkeeper-beim FCB problem
In Germany, an offer from FC Basel has been discussed in the past few hours. Ex-GC goalkeeper and YB Bürki kid in red and blue? It’s hard to imagine, but not impossible.
Because FCB has been looking for a goalkeeper for a long time. Heinz Lindner, signed to No. 2 by Wien-Wiesbaden a year ago, has remained flawless during his time at Bayern and is superb on the streak, but the Austrian has weaknesses with the ball at his feet. And the 31-year-old doesn’t have a very big presence in the penalty area.
Nikolic has no future in Basel
So it’s no surprise that FCB ousted Roman Burke. According to various German media reports, Bebbi wanted to borrow the BVB goalkeeper, but the latter was said to have rejected the offer, as he would also have to forego a large part of his salary.
According to «Sport1», BVB is said to have been willing to take over the bulk of Bourke’s salary, but Bourke himself refused the loan offer.
It is now clear that Burke will remain with the BVB. It is also clear that Djordji Nikolic, who started the season in first place a year ago but lost his place due to several errors, has no future in Basel. The Serbs’ contract expires at the end of June – and Bayern will likely soon introduce a new goalkeeper.
Who else gets Basel?
This could be Anthony Racciopi. He has completed 13 matches for the U21 national team, but is currently on the bench in Dijon (Ligue 2).
