I doubt very much that Reus and Gündogan are upgrades on Kagawa and Sahin, but your point is correct, Dortmund have had success in making former stars forgotten without spending more than receiving.
But, remember Werder a few years back? They also always seemed to be miracilously replacekey players. Ailton with Klose, Kristajic and Ismael with Naldo and Mertesacker, Ernst with Frings, Micoud with Diego, Klose with Rosenberg and later Pizarro, Diego with Özil.
That came to an end finally. It's very difficult to keep pulling players out of your hat. Granted, Dortmund will get more money for Götze etc. and are a bigger club than Bremen... Still it's difficult to invest the 40 million you might get for Götze in equal talent. Given the managment's recent history I can see why Dortmund fans would have faith in them, but it's far from easy.
