Youssoufa Moukoko may well have to miss a large chunk of pre-season, as he has been named in the Germany U-21s squad for the UEFA European Under-21 Championship (June 21-July 8).

Borussia Dortmund will also travel to the United States this summer for a pre-season tour. This will be BVB’s fourth trip to the United States, and they will play friendly matches against Manchester United (Las Vegas, July 30) and Chelsea (Chicago, August 3).
