The end of the change period: What is still happening?
Not a few football Bundesliga clubs seem to have completed personnel planning before the end of the change period tonight. An overview:
FC Bayern Munich: Sports Managements Management Hasan Salihamidzic had recently been explaining that you do not plan winter transfers. _ “_ We are very, very well occupied and have a good troop that stands and there will not happen too,” said the Sports Managements board. Reservist Michael Cuisance was sold to the FC Venice.
Borussia Dortmund: The BVB would like to give players yet, but has probably found no prospects for candidates such as the former regularkeeper Roman Bürki or ex-national player Nico Schulz.
1. FC Union Berlin: This departure shortly before time limit hurts the Iron and tears a gap: Max Kruse changes to his former club VfL Wolfsburg. What now? “It will be a challenging task of compensating for this loss,” says Unions ProfiFussball Managing Director Oliver Ruhnert. What that means is, will show. Also, whether Union in the last minute reinvest the money for Kruse on the transfer market.
1. FC Köln: After the FC has left in the winter with Rafael Czichos (Chicago Fire), Jorge Meré (CF America) and Sava Cestic (HNK Rijeka) equal three central defenders, Managing Director Alexander Wehrle had announced that next to Julian Chabot of Sampdoria Genoa Maybe a second comes. In conversation, the Turkish international Kaan Ayhan, who was already playing in the Bundesliga for Schalke, Frankfurt and Dusseldorf.
Borussia Mönchengladbach: Despite the vacuum on the Sports Managements directors position, Borussia is trying to collect money for one or the other player. Especially in the summer Denis Zakaria could still change (Juventus Turin?). The Matthias Ginter, which is also free in summer, is probably more in Gladbach. Exchange candidates are also the problem cases Marcus Thuram and Alassane Plea. Open is whether the club is still one or two new ones on the last pusher.
HERTHA BSC: Despite three new commitments with wing storm Dongjun Lee (Ulsan Hyundai) as well as the defenders Fredrik André Björkan (FK Bodö / Glimt) and Marc Oliver Kempf (VFB Stuttgart), Hertha could still present a midfielder and a right outer-back.
Arminia Bielefeld: There are rumors about a transfer of US left-back George Bello for about two million euros. At the 20-year-old of Atlanta United FC, however, Cercle Bruges should be interested.
VfL Wolfsburg: The VfL has landed a small coup with the return of Max Kruse. Will others go? The Dutcher Wout Weghorst, best scorer of the past three and a half years, and Josha Guilavogui, the former captain, are just before the way. And besides Kruse, the Dane Jonas Wind is also to come from FC Copenhagen for the attack.
FC Augsburg: After the record access of Ricardo Pepi for estimated 13 million euros, the FC Augsburg kept his eyes open. A real access for the winter did not turn off.
At the SC Freiburg, RB Leipzig, the TSG 1899 Hoffenheim, Eintracht Frankfurt, the FSV Mainz 05, the VfL Bochum, Bayer Leverkusen, the VfB Stuttgart and the SPVGG Greuther Fürth is nothing to be expected.
