Dusseldorf (DPA) – Start prudent, strong final kick: in the league of soccer especially prevailed in the last two days before the closing of the list of transfers on January 31, once again.
Until 18:00 the clock, the 18 clubs had time to announce their signings through the Online Transfer System (TOR) of the German Football League (DFL). Also in the other major European leagues in England, Spain and Italy was called "rien ne va plus" – nothing works! However, some of the clubs still had the opportunity to optimize their squadrons until midnight.
In the so-called "Deadline" some players have changed sideways. Eintracht Frankfurt committed two players at the last minute. The fallen ones in Augsburgo in disgrace Martin Hinteregger was lent until the end of the season. In addition, the obligation of the Brazilian defender Lucas Melo de São Paulo was made perfect. The transfer fee for the 19-year-old with the artistic name Tuta should be approximately 1.8 million euros. Fortuna Dusseldorf secured the services of the Polish striker Dawid Kownacki, which was settled by Sampdoria Génova until June 30.
The night was still speculating. Then, Hoffenheim Havard Nordtveit was supposedly facing a change in FC Fulham. Borussia Dortmund's professional, Shinji Kagawa, received information before the agreement with Besiktas Istanbul. Until the end of Hannover 96 he had treated the children of 29 years.
In general, the Bundesliga has spent in the transfer period II since January 1, 69.8 million euros for 26 new additions. This is exactly the level of the previous year (70 million euros). The record of more than 90 million euros in the winter of 2017 was not achieved. It is clear that most talented and very young professionals are always more popular. In addition, the tendency continued towards the stores of rent, especially popular in winter.
Like a year ago, when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang moved to FC Arsenal for 63.75 million euros, BVB is by far the leader in revenue. Borussia took advantage of the wealth of the Premier League clubs and sold the Christian talent Pulisic for $ 64 million to Chelsea. However, the 20-year angle will play in the second half of the league season for Bundesliga leaders. Part of the reinvested money Dortmund in the Argentine national player U20 Leonardo Balerdi (15.0 / Boca Juniors).
"Finally, there will be an explosion of bubbles," Schalkes sports director, Christian Heidel, criticized at the SpoBis industry congress in Düsseldorf especially the commercial conduct of English. In the last days before the end of the winter market, Bundesliga managers are constantly listening to the phone "because Englishmen want us to lend players who bought them for 15 or 20 million pounds," said Heidel.
He also went to the store on the island. The day before Schalke had the obligation of 18-year-old talent, Rabbi Matondo, informed by the next opponents of the Champions League Manchester City (9.0). In addition, Jeffrey Bruma is helping the loan of VfL Wolfsburg to alleviate the need for defense after the departure of Naldo.
He had also been offered "rows of players from England" in recent days, said the board of Eintracht Frankfurt Fredi Bobic. "They want to dilute the squads," he said, but he sees no potential for the increase in transfer rates. "To English, the limits are reached at some point, so it is exchanged more between clubs and sometimes I feel remembered of my youth when we change the images of Panini."
On the revenue side, a total of almost 82 million euros. With 40 more professional players they left the clubs German of which they committed themselves. The strongest absolved 1899 Hoffenheim in his squadron. Seven professionals were awarded. With the Brazilian defensive lieutenant Lucas Ribeiro (Vitoria EC / 4.0 million euros) a new one was only presented. "Maybe Real Madrid is calling today and wants any of us for 90 million, then we would do that," said TSG coach, Julian Nagelsmann.
Hans-Joachim Watzke considers that the great million transfers are even easier than the obligation of a cheaper player. "Transfers, which reach between five and ten million euros in revenue, are difficult," said the CEO of BVB in Düsseldorf. "The smaller the bag, the more you have to analyze".
The BVB hunter, Bayern, feels his elite team seemingly strong enough to reach the goals in three competitions. Munich invested only ten million Euros in the Canadian offensive talent Alphonso Davies (18 years) – a first step towards rejuvenation. The most expensive winter access was provided by RB Leipzig. The Saxons took Amadou Haidara midfielder from the Red Bull Salzburg brother club for 18 million euros.
