Borussia Dortmund have chosen to terminate Nico Schulz’s contract, with the left-back receiving a one-time sum of 2.5 million euros.
After two years of attempting unsuccessfully to get rid of him, Dortmund has finally agreed to split ways with Nico Schulz. According to BILD, the Black and Yellows will give the left-back a severance package of 2.5 million euros.
Borussia Dortmund were anxious to get Schulz off their payroll this summer. They also let him skip training to meet with other teams. However, a move did not materialize, and the BVB executives have now decided to terminate the 30-year-old’s contract as a final resort.
Schulz had little over a year left on his contract with Dortmund, and his yearly compensation was 5.5 million euros. As a result of his contract termination, the club will save around three million euros.
What Nico Schulz’s future holds is unknown; he transferred from TSG Hoffenheim to Borussia Dortmund in 2019 for a price unknown. The former Germany international never really made an impression at BVB. Because of this, as well as his problems off the field, Edin Terzic kept him out of the first team.
Nico Schulz hasn’t played for Dortmund since May 2021. He will now depart BVB after making 61 appearances for the club.
