Many experts believe that Bayern have completed the best transfers in the football market so far. Sadio Mane, Matthijs de Ligt, Ryan Gravenberch, Nusair Mazraoui and Matthijs Tell arrived in Munich. 137,000,000 euros were spent, which is the second strongest transfer window in the history of the Bavarian giants, leaving in the shadow the numerous sales of less important players from which a serious amount of money was made.
German colleagues write about this “small detail”, stating that the turnaround in the work of the ten-time consecutive winner of the Bundesliga is obvious. So far, Bayern have had a hard time giving up on young players, and even those who have been there to jump off the bench as needed. This summer, Hasan Salihamidzic managed to sell several of them very well and practically covered more than a third of the costs incurred by bringing in new players.
Bild claims – a model has been found in the operation of Real Madrid, which in recent years has collected more than 250,000,000 euros by selling its young minor players who are not ready for the first team.
With the calculated bonuses, Bayern only in the last few weeks on the transfers of Chris and Omar Richard (to Crystal Palace and Nottingham Forest), and Marco Rocca (Leeds), Lucas Mai (Lugano), Christopher Scott (Antwerp) and Ron Thorben Hoffmann (Braunschweig ) and Christian Frichtl (Austria Vienna) earned 50,300,000 euros.
Thus, if the talent is not enough for a professional breakthrough and contribution to Julian Nagelsmann’s team, they will no longer stand on the bench or in another team, but will be sold and bring solid earnings.
By the way, the idea is to insert a favorable buyout clause where possible.
The best example of Bayern’s new transfer tactics is American Chris Richards. He was brought as a 19-year-old from Dallas for only 1,100,000 euros (30% of the next sale), in Germany he established himself on loan in Hoffenheim, his price jumped drastically and Palace paid 12,000,000 euros for him, and through “easy” bonuses will add another 8,000,000.
The situation is similar with Omar Richards. In Munich, they were aware that the Englishman would hardly have a serious role in the first team. They took him from Reading because his contract was up and then sold him for 10,000,000 to Nottingham Forest.
It seems simple…
