Gladbach's deal for Ecuadorian defender collapses
By Peter Vice @ViceytheSS
Local Ecuadorian radio reports that Borussia Mönchengladbach's purchase of 19-year-old defender William Joel Pacho Tenorio has collapsed.

Apparently, it came rather close to happening. All numbers were agreed to. Pacho's club was guaranteed re-sale proceeds and the teenager even had his work visa ready. Before a scheduled medical, however, Glabach backed out for financial reasons.
BMG sporting director Max Eberl proved rather evasive when pressed recently about the stalled transfer.
"I can't say really because nothing is fixed yet," Eberl told the Rheinische Post, "With Luca Netz, Manu Koné, trainer [Adi Hütter] and the coaching staff, we've already invested [money]. We mustn't forget Hannes Wolf either."
It's entirely possible that Eberl had intended to sell more players to offset this particular investment. As is common when sales are agreed to in principle, it cannot be ruled out that the domestic club might file a trade complaint.
