After flying out of the gates to start last season, Borussia Dortmund saw their Bundesliga title hopes fade with a rough second half of their season. Earlier than desired exits in both the DFB Pokal and Champions League left a bitter taste in many mouths after such a promising start. Rather than simply try the same thing again, Dortmund have gone out and made major changes to their squad.

Borussia Dortmund are known to most as the trendy club in Germany’s Bundesliga. They play stylish football, promote their own youth, and give Bayern Munich a title challenge nearly every season. Many of their players have gone on to play for Bayern as the Bavarian giants can flex their financial muscles almost at will. Robert Lewandowski, Mats Hummels, and Mario Gotze are just a few examples of players who left the chants of the Yellow Wall for the Allianz Arena.

Dortmund gained fans across the globe because they would lose their top players to Bayern or other major clubs and simply reload. Usually it was with promotions from within their club. Dortmund’s youth academy is fantastic and their mentality with integrating young players is internationally respected. However, this summer it appears that they will be taking a different approach. Dortmund have been busy this transfer window, bringing in multiple top players as they look to challenge both domestically and internationally. Let’s look at how they may line-up this upcoming season! Leave your thoughts below!
