"A return to Ligue 1? Of course": Zagadou open to Ligue 1 return after Dortmund
With his time at Dortmund soon to end and having failed to impress in Germany, the young French centreback is keen to explore his options
One of the most promising young defenders in the game may just be returning home. Borussia Dortmund's Dan-Axel Zagadou's deal is set to expire at the end of the season, and the former PSG academy player has been pondering his options.
