Dortmund’s streak of luck doesn’t end: After BVB snatched national player Niklas Süle from FC Bayern for free and made Munich look old with the transfers of Karim Adeyemi and Nico Schlotterbeck, the black and yellow team managed the next coup.

Scout switches to BVB: Borussia Dortmund is back at FC Bayern. As reported by “Bild”, top scout Laurent Busser (52) is moving from Säbener Straße to Borsigplatz for free. The “Team Leader Scouting” is primarily responsible for the French business, which is important for Munich.

Short, compact, clear

Good reputation: Busser is a close associate of squad planner Marco Neppe (35). Bayern’s former chief planner Michael Reschke praises Busser in the “Bild”: “Laurent is extremely hard-working, highly competent and has an international reputation.”

Newcastle are also interested: In addition to Dortmund, the nouveau riche club Newcastle United are said to have been interested in Busser. One of his greatest discoveries is Leon Bailey, whom he guided to the Werkself when he was at Leverkusen. At Bayern he is associated with the commitment of Tanguy Nianzou (19).
