Transfer fee for Hummels much higher than expected
| Reading time: 2 minutes
The transition from Mats Hummels from Bayern to BVB is perfect. Surprising in the return is the high transfer fee. The defender costs Dortmund more than his sale in 2016 earned.
Dlost his son is back. Mats Hummels will move from FC Bayern to Borussia Dortmund next season, as confirmed by both companies. The clubs agreed after the WELT information on a transfer fee of 38 million euros, including bonuses. According to Funke media group it should be 30.5 million euros of a fixed amount.
This is a surprising amount of money, the last one being discussed for only 20 million euros. For the 30-year-old, it is the return to the old workplace. Already between 2009 and 2016, Hummels has completed 309 competitive games for BVB, won two championships at this time and once the DFB Cup. Subsequently, the world champion moved from 2014 to 35 million euros of transfer to his youth club FC Bayern.
This also means that Dortmund pays more for Hummels than it did for him three years ago. This is quite atypical. Not only because Hummels is three years older, he is no longer a national player and Bayern is no longer an undisputed guest. Above all, in the past the BVB paid less and less for the repatriation actions that the club had previously taken.
Fourth wholesale purchase of BVB
In the case of Mario Götze BVB earned 15 million euros more, with Shinji Kagawa eight million euros and Nuri Sahin still two million euros.
Hummels is the fourth wholesale purchase of BVB. Previously, Borussia had already hired national players Julian Brandt (Bayer Leverkusen) and Nico Schulz (TSG Hoffenheim) and Belgian Thorgan Hazard (Borussia Mönchengladbach).
Hummels must probably reduce the salary. This should be for those in their thirties, but in tolerable spheres, according to "image" he admitted instead of twelve million euros a year in the future ten.
His relationship with the BVB was very good despite the change to Bayern. At the time, BVB managing director Hans-Joachim Watzke emphasized that Hummels was always extremely welcome in Borussia. The fans had booed the defender in the games against Bayern, even if they were isolated. But the noisy, once noisy, mockery by Mario Götze has since returned from Munich, meanwhile, closed again in the heart.
Hummels spoke of a "dirty speech"
While many Bayern fans mourn their number 5, not a few Dortmund see the skeptical return. The judgment on the net goes from "world-class player" and "reinforcement" to "too slowly" and "model out of phase".
When Hummels submitted his change request three years ago and the BVB announced it with an ad hoc announcement, it was the target of disappointed fans. Hummels spoke frustrated by a "dirty message", Watzke distanced himself from the rebels, whose reaction sports director Michael Zorc called "shameful".
