Red Bull Salzburg continues to live up to its reputation as an excellent training club. The Austrians have now sold super talent Brenden Aaronson to England.
From Salzburg to Leeds: Leeds United have secured the services of US international Brenden Aaronson. The Premier League club confirmed this on Thursday. The contract runs until 2027. The transfer fee for the 21-year-old midfielder is said to be 28 million euros.
Reunion with Marsch: In Leeds Aaronson meets his old coach from Salzburg days, Jesse Marsch, who ended up with the Peacocks after his short trip to Leipzig. The American took over the club in the spring and led to relegation.
Solid stats: While Aaronson had three goals in 20 Bundesliga games, he scored six goals and contributed ten assists in 41 games in all competitions last season. According to “Transfermarkt.de”, the market value of the American is 20 million euros – but in England, as is well known, the money is looser than in other leagues.
