Hasan Salihamidzic is heavily criticized before the season after buying various flops, but the sports director manages to turn things around with great transfers like Sadio Mané, Ryan Gravenberch or Noussair Mazraoui. But the 45-year-old is also successful in sales.
Can Bavaria still sell? For years, the accusation persisted that FC Bayern could not sell players profitably, which became painfully clear, especially after the free transfers of David Alaba, Jerome Boateng and Niklas Süle. But in this transfer period, Salihamidzic sold a lot and well.
Short, compact, clear
Strong Roca deal: The deal for reservist Marc Roca (25) is particularly lucrative. Salihamidzic took him from Espanyol Barcelona two years ago for nine million euros, but has now resold it to Leeds United for twelve million. With a clever clause, Bayern could collect millions more if Roca becomes a regular player and plays a lot.
Additional bonus for 25 games: If the Spaniard plays 25 competitive games per season for the Premier League club, FC Bayern will receive an additional bonus of 1.25 million euros, as reported by “Sport Bild”. With a contract until 2026, Roca could bring Munich up to another five million euros if he establishes himself in the team.
