BVB, rumor: Guerreiro was probably offered to FC Barcelona
Raphael Guerreiro has been with Borussia Dortmund since 2016. His time at BVB could soon end. According to mundo Deportivo, the black and yellow offered the Portuguese at FC Barcelona. The Catalans are probably looking for an alternative for Jordi Alba. According to the report, a transfer fee of eight to ten million euros should be under discussion. As early as 2016 and 2020, Barca was probably interested in Guerreiro.
The 28-year-old’s contract expires in 2023 and the BVB would prevent the left-back from pulling away without any equivalent. Guerreiro stood in the field in 22 Bundesliga games in the current season and posted seven goal participations. However, his changeable performance is almost symbolical of the BVB season.

Marco Reus was very important to me – especially in the first few years. I will miss him, but we will keep in touch.”
He will always think positively for his BVB period. “I will remember my first goal in the Bundesliga. That was a nice fall-back goal against Leipzig. I will never forget the fans either. I don’t know if I will ever experience a crazy atmosphere as at our home games. “
