Raphael Guerreiro expected to leave Borussia Dortmund in the summer

In the latest Bundesliga news, Raphael Guerreiro is expected to leave Borussia Dortmund on a free transfer in the summer transfer window. 

The 28-year-old joined the Black and Yellows in the summer of 2016 from Ligue 1 club Lorient. He has been an important player for Dortmund, making 206 appearances across all competitions. 

However, his current contract expires at the end of the season, fueling plenty of speculation about his future. 

According to a report from Ruhr Nachrichten, Guerreiro will leave Dortmund as a free agent when his contract expires. He will be free to hold talks with other clubs in the January transfer window. 

Guerreiro is a top-class player who can operate as a left-back as well as a midfielder. He is known for his defensive contributions and is also praised for his passing and ability to hold onto the ball. 

He made a strong start to the 2022-23 season, starting 12 matches in the Bundesliga. He also featured in four Champions League games this campaign, with two goals to his name. 

The former Lorient star is currently involved with the Portugal national side at the 2022 World Cup, playing three matches. 

In a surprise decision, Fernando Santos selected Guerreiro instead of Joao Cancelo for the round of 16 clash against Switzerland.

He repaid the manager’s faith by scoring a superb goal in Portugal’s 6-1 victory. 

A strong World Cup will serve to increase interest in the 28-year-old, who could be signed for free next summer.
