Bayern puts his transfer – millions aside for next season
MUNICH. In general, the German first division gave 413 million euros. Borussia Dortmund is the leader with purchases amounting to 73 million euros.
Uli Hoeneß, President of FC Bayern Munich, has stopped on the transfer market.
The clubs in the German football league have been cautious in the World Cup Summer on the transfer market. Of all Abo champions FC Bayern practiced in noble restraint. The Munich "collect a little money" to be prepared for the future. Borussia Dortmund, however, preferred a completely different strategy: 73 million euros was spent to change staff.
Bayern President Uli Hoeneß explains the strategy of the club: "We are now collecting a little money in case we have to buy more next year." The restraint seems sensible. Finally, high sums will be due in the coming summer for the currently borrowed James Rodriguez (Real Madrid, reportedly 42 million euros) and the probably perfect change of world champion Benjamin Pavard of VfB Stuttgart (35 million euros). In addition, the contracts of the veteran Franck Ribéry and Arjen Robben expire at the end of the current season.
So the national player Leon Goretzka came free from Schalke, the previously awarded Renato Sanches (Swansea) and Serge Gnabry (Hoffenheim) returned. The sales of this year from the sale of Douglas Costa (Juventus / 40m), Arturo Vidal (Barcelona / 18m) and probably also the national player Sebastian Rudy, who is associated with Leipzig and Schalke, could win the following year. Expansion of the opportunities for new stars in David Alaba's club. Alphonso Davies, a Canadian talent committed to ten million euros, is coming to Munich in January.
The economy of Bavaria is one reason why the total expenditure of the 18 Bundesliga clubs for new staff so far remained below that of the previous year. Compared with the record investments in the summer of 2017 of just under 600 million euros, according to calculations by the German news agency, the clubs had significantly less than 413 million euros so far. This is compensated by transfer proceeds of more than 423 million euros (last year: 485 million euros).
The purchases from Dortmund
Borussia Dortmund has done three of the four most expensive summer purchases. Professionals such as Abdou Diallo (Mainz / 28 million euros), Thomas Delaney (Bremen / 20) and Axel Witsel (Quanjian / 20) have to help the fourth of last season to reduce the luxuriant deficit to Bayern. An attacker can still come, with a star difficult to finance.
An Austrian football league player will certainly continue in the play-off for the Champions League. Swiss champions Young Boys Bern with Thorsten Schick are today under contract with Croatian champions Dinamo Zagreb (21.00 hours, SRF two), with Emir Dilaver (formerly Austria). At Dinamo the former coach of Wolfsberg and Austria, Nenad Bjelica, is active as a coach. Ajax Amsterdam, club of ex-Rapidlers Maximilian Wöber, duels with Dynamo Kiev. The Dutch have clearly had the upper hand in the second heat against the winner of the Austrian Cup, Sturm Graz.
