Wolfsburg / Cologne –

VfL Wolfsburg is keen on FC defender Sebastiaan Bornauw (22). The Belgian should replace the defensive jewel Maxence Lacroix (21) courted by RB Leipzig in Lower Saxony. Manager Jörg Schmadtke (57) talks about the status of the negotiations – and makes one sit up and take notice with a statement that the FC officials should remind him of.

  • VfL Wolfsburg wants to sign Sebastiaan Bornauw
  • 1. FC Köln has rejected the first offer
  • That’s what former FC manager Jörg Schmadtke says

Will Bornauw follow Lacroix at VfL Wolfsburg? Ex-FC boss Schmadtke told the “Sportbuzzer” on Sunday (June 20) about the Frenchman, who is at the top of the wish list in Leipzig: “In our opinion, there has to be an offer that is in line with the market – but there is currently not . “RB is said to have offered 20 million euros.

Jörg Schmadtke (VfL Wolfsburg) and Alexander Wehrle (left, 1. FC Cologne, here on December 5, 2020) are negotiating the transfer fee for Sebastiaan Bornauw.

1. FC Köln: Poker with VfL Wolfsburg for Sebastiaan Bornauw

Schmadtke’s sentence should have been registered with interest at the Geißbockheim. After all, the Wölfe boss had recently made an offer for Cologne’s Bornauw which certainly did not correspond to the title “market calculated”: eight million euros.

The FC officials didn’t have to think twice to cancel VfL. Vice-President Eckhard Sauren (49): “The offer did not meet our expectations. Sebastiaan has fantastic potential and high sporting value. Exactly such players can be developed. “

That’s why the FC even wants to make the Belgian an offer to extend his contract, which runs until 2024, ahead of time.

Eckhard Sauren: 1. FC Köln must absorb corona losses

But it is also clear that Bornauw would like to take the chance to play in the Champions League next season. And Sauren knows: “We have to absorb corona losses of 60 million euros. It’s not good that we don’t think about transfers. And it also depends on how the player thinks. “

EXPRESS had exclusively reported on a conversation between ex-Bayern star and Bornauw advisor Daniel Van Buyten (43) with the FC officials. This rose last week. Schmadtke: “The Cologne wanted to clarify to what extent the player is thinking of leaving the club. When you have done that, you will contact us. “

Born in Düsseldorf, he believes: “We will bring about a decision at some point.”

But Schmadtke still has to make significant improvements, FC calculates around 15 million euros for Bornauw – which would be more in line with the market for the two-time Belgian national team player …
