In the 2020/21 season, the Corona pandemic also caught the professional football with full broadside: most of the playing time has been kicked in most of the top leagues from empty ranks, revenue in a significant million height remained. A circumstance, which was also reflected on the transfer market.

After the German Bundesliga clubs invested 950 million euros for new staff around FC Bayern, BVB and Co. 2019/20, it was still 418 million euros in the summer of 2021 – a clear burglary that will slowly recover slowly. This believes at least top player consultant Volker Struth.

I believe that we will reach the level of 2019 only 2023 or 2024, so the 55-year-old talking to the empty ranks Image.

Incidentally, under the sudden burglary of the market as a result of the pandemic, his own clients suffered. Dayot Upamecano Stand at the beginning of 2020 a change to Manchester City, Suat Serdar has been courted by Atlético Madrid and Philipp Max had landed almost at Borussia Mönchengladbach. Then hit the crisis, the deal bursting all.

The FC Bayern benefited

With a young top player, that s not such a problem. The next chance is safe, Struth talks about the situation. There was something else with a 26-year-old boy like Philipp Max, who played in Augsburg and who had a request from Mönchengladbach, with whom he could have played Champions League. Everything was on the way, a huge opportunity for his career. Then Corona – and Gladbach s Manager Max Eberl calls. He says they can not make transfers.

The cancellations would have weighing, most of his protégés could still successfully accommodate Struth. Upamecano 3021 finally signed at FC Bayern, Max hired at the PSV Eindhoven and became national player.
