FC Bayern with a transfer offensive – and RB Leipzig is doing business

Leipzig / Munich. Matthijs and Mathys: Two Bavarians to Remember. The players with absolutely unusual Bavarian names are the last transfers from Bayern Munich. Record champions have improved their line-up accordingly, some are already talking about a luxurious line-up, although in fact it can be said every year: even better, even more expensive. This is the biggest and most expensive transfer offensive of all time. Mathys Tel, the French prodigy, with the important addition of ‘one of Europe’s biggest strikers’, has a price of EUR 20 million plus x, so it costs more than it is now (17). Bayern’s last transfer so far after returning from US training camp shortly before departing to Leipzig for the Super Cup, which will begin Saturday at 8:30 PM.

Lots of numbers in a thicket of leaves

In the near future, RB Leipzig may travel internationally to the USA or India for marketing purposes. The league around Leipzig and Co. needs money, also to carry the relevant numbers in international transfers, from the Bundesliga club to the Bundesliga club or to the Premier League, for example. In England, there are also different financial standards due to the higher sums of TV and investors, so recently the question arises more and more: why are they paying an above-average amount for the average player? Well, don’t complain: in some cases, coal benefits local Bundesliga teams as well.

The country has the status quo: RB, a possible Bayern hunter in the Bundesliga, is now making a very successful team with available resources. So far this summer there have been changes on Pleiße, especially on the delivery side, the line-up has been downsized which resulted in an increase in the account balance. 29 pros were considered too many players. After the departure of Tyler Adams and Brian Brobbey, RB made a profit and the latest transfer deal with Nordi Mukiele was virtually plus-minus-zero.

With all the numbers tearing through the maze of pages, or rather online, only club and financial directors know what they really look like. Fees often add up over the years of the contract due to built-in clauses with bonus numbers (the famous x). The focus is on Dutch and Bavarian defensive ace Matthijs de Ligt: with him, the transfer fee to Juventus could be 77 million instead of 67 million. Comparing RB / Bayern, the Dutch international gives the best results.

Will space become the dearest novice?

The flows of millions from Munich to other accounts this year are 170.5 million, more than in the best year 2019 (145.5). The industry leader is nowhere near 200 million if Leipzig’s rushing midfielder Konrad Laimer could only claim the alleged sum. With RB, top access Xaver Schlager would not only be a sideline, but also a substitute – and now a transfer plus (54.75 million).

Laimera’s Austrian compatriot came to Leipzig from Wolfsburg for a relatively cheap twelve million, but with the lure of the Champions League. Now it remains to be seen how much left-back David Raum of TSG Hoffenheim will cost. With around 30 million (plus x) he would be this year’s Leipzig top transfer, he could even become the most expensive newcomer in the club’s history – so far it’s ex-Salzburg Naby Keita with 29.75 million.
