Borussia Dortmund's moves in transfer market reflect a shift in club philosophy

Since the end of 2017, there has been as much talk about change at Borussia Dortmund as there would be from a political candidate campaigning to unseat his rival from office.

As performances on the pitch became bleaker, the language out of CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke and sporting director Michael Zorc became more radical. First, the team needed "readjustments." That term was quickly adjusted itself to "a sizable overhaul during the summer," and now, ahead of the 2018-19 campaign, the BVB bosses are...
