Borussia Dortmund Sign Gonzalo Castro

Following Jurgen Klopp’s departure from the club, Borussia Dortmund made their first signing by landing midfielder Gonzalo Castro from Bayer Leverkusen. It is important to note that it just one day after the end of the Bundesliga season, and Dortmund have already announced their summer signing.

Dortmund has officially confirmed that Klopp has signed a four-year contract with the club, which have activated a clause in the player’s contract to free him one year before the conclusion for a fixed, undisclosed fee. Dortmund reportedly triggered the €11 million release clause in Castro’s contract to secure the midfielder.

Castro stated via Leverkusen’s official website that his move is related to his passion to give himself some new stimulus in the football career. He also mentioned that the move was not an easy decision for him since he had such a fantastic time over the years with Leverkusen and the club will always have special place in his heart.

Castro has joined Leverkusen since 1999, when he was 12 years old as young player. Then he joined the senior career for the club in 2005. During his long-time career at Leverkusen, he scored 25 goals in 286 games. He has made nearly 300 Bundesliga appearance for the side. He has also made five appearances for the German national team.

Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc noted, “we are happy that we have added an experienced, technically competent midfield player to our team, who can play in a variety of positions.” He also mentioned that Castro will prove an excellent addition to the squad, whose versatility will aid them in their upcoming Europa campaign.

For the new club he may fill the empty slot left by Sebastian Kehl or Ilkay Gundogan, who are to retire this summer. As an addition, he will also link up with Dortmund’s new coach Thomas Tuchel for pre-season training in July.
