The report appearing in the “Sport Bild” newspaper goes on to note that Borussia Mönchengladbach have seized the initiative by inviting the youngster and his agent to visit the club.
The sweeper/central midfielder/center-back has played almost every minute of action for the KSC this season, in the process becoming by far the most valuable player on the roster. KSC trainer Christian Eichner recently told radio broadcaster Südwestrundfunk that he considered Breithaupt an indispensable player whom he “always wants on the pitch as long as possible.”
The “Sport Bild” report notes that KSC sporting director Oliver Kreuzer wants a minimum of €4 million for his prized asset. The relegation-threatened Badeners certainly wouldn’t wish to part company with such an important actor, but could use the funds from what would be a record transfer to bolster their squad in other areas.
