Vela fist signing of Dortmund's summer
Carlos Vela has today been announced as Borussia Dortmund's opening signing of the 2015 summer transfer window after agreeing a £73,000 a week contract with the German giants. After poor seasons from Ezequiel Rescaldani, Adrian Ramos and Alex Lacazette Dortmund want to add more firepower to the team. The former Mexican international joined for a hefty sum of £34,000,000. The Mexican scored nine goals in sixteen Liga BBVA matches last season. The lack of appearances was down to a combination a lack of fitness and a recurring knee injury, leaving him sidelined for most of the campaign.

Mats Iconic was on hand to ensure the Dortmund fans will get their money's worth.
'Vela has come in for a big price tag but I'm positive that he'll be worth it. You're in for a treat with him, he's a quality player that I'm sure will be a big hit.'
Dortmund legend Jurgen Klopp has shown some concern on the deal, having been newly appointed at Bayern Leverkusen.
'I'm not sure if Vela is the right player for Dortmund, I appreciated that Mats wants to get even more quality into the squad, but he's a bit of an enigma and someone who maybe isn't quite right for the team, but I do hope I'm wrong...except when we play him!'
