This list clearly tells how Dortmund does its business and how they are so profitable club even when Covid hit a high for every club. However, if they want to gain revenue as a club and stature for themselves, they need to win major trophies and compete with big teams, which they failed to do recently, especially since Sancho and Haaland have gone.

Jude Bellingham is their latest mega sale as Real Madrid signed him for around 103 million euros + add-ons, which can go up to 25+ million Euros, which will give Dortmund more money to sing some new exciting talent.

Ousmane Dembele is their most profitable sale, as Barcelona brought him for around 140 million euros that, broke the record in the 2017 summer transfer in La Liga, but all that money came from the Neymar deal as he was the one who left the club for around 222 million euro dollars in 2017 and to replace him Barcelona came up with Dembele who not able to live up to his name and kept getting injured in most of the season.
