Borussia Monchengladbach look set to see star midfield Manu Kone depart the club this summer. The midfielder arrived in Germany two years ago, and has set the tone for the Borussen outfit with his high-energy, aggressive approach to the game. A major part of what has made Kone such a standout has been his excellent tackling numbers, though the 22-year-old has also added a decent attacking output to his game.

Having been linked a Bundesliga exit for some time now, it looks like the midfielder will depart this summer for a fee of around €45m. Teams linked include the likes of Liverpool FC in England, though there is also believed to be interest from teams in Germany such as FC Bayern. The midfielder, though, is believed to fancy a move to England and talks have already potentially begun about his arrival.

With the fee set, reports in Germany believe that a move to Liverpool is almost a formality at this point. Kone has made his name in the Bundesliga with a range of different qualities, but his maturity for one so young has been praised since his arrival I the league. it is expected that he will be part of a midfield rebuild in Gladbach, though, with the team set to look very differently under current coach Daniel Farke.

Gladbach have been through some pretty major rebuilding in recent years, with sporting director Max Eberl leaving the club in disarray. Since then, they have struggled to find that same consistency or on off the pitch again. They finished this season in mid-table, which has opened the door for some major rebuilding to take place at one of the Bundesliga’s most historically important clubs.

Major change expected across Gladbach – but Farke is safe

While some fans have been unsure about keeping Farke as coach, most reports from around the club suggest that he will be given another season. He arrived from FC Krasnodar in Russia, leaving amid the political conflict in the country. The Foals seen his hiring as quite a coup, though he has yet to prove that he can take Gladbach any further than previous managers were able.

And while a range of excellent managers are on the available list, it looks like Gladbach will stick with Farke for now. What will change, though, is the playing staff. All reports suggest that the club are set to rip up the squad and start afresh. While veterans like Lars Stindl and Patrick Hermann will stick around, it is likely that the club will look to clear the decks with many of their prime-age players sold on to begin a new project.

In a club that feels like it is in a perpetual state of rebuilding, this should come as no real surprise. However, expect the club to continue to make major changes and adjustments as the summer rolls on. With extensive funds expected to arrive from the sale of Kone, and others, the rebuild in Gladbach could be one of the biggest in German football this summer.
