The stadium? I now only have bad memories of it (laughs). I’ve always lost, I think. But the atmosphere is the best in Europe.”

The 26-year-old Hazard joined Monchengladbach in the summer of 2014 on a rental basis from Chelsea. That Fohlen paid one and a half million for that season and laid in the summer of 2015, a further eight million dollars in addition to have him permanently take over.

Dortmund took also all Nico Schulz from Hoffenheim in the house, it would be on the verge Julian Brandt away from Bayer Leverkusen, and is linked to the Eintracht Frankfurt striker Sébastien Haller.
