Borussia Dortmund may have missed out on a coveted league title this season and lost one of its key players, Jude Bellingham, to Real Madrid, but the club has managed to deepen its pockets by recruiting, developing and selling players well.
On 7 July, Dortmund announced on their official website, “Bellingham is moving from Dortmund to Real Madrid. An agreement was reached today. The contract details still need to be harmonised and documented. If the transfer to Real is executed, Dortmund will receive €130 million in compensation. It has also been agreed that they will receive a commission of up to 30 per cent of the amount of the fixed transfer fee.” It’s effectively a breakup.메이저놀이터
Unlike Bayern Munich, Dortmund, one of Germany’s biggest clubs, has a strong image as a selling club. Even when they develop players, they don’t stay for long, and they move on to other big clubs, including Munich. This is why they struggle to build a strong squad.
Dortmund, on the other hand, has a lot of money to spend on players who leave the club. In addition to Bellingham, they sold Jadon Sancho (Manchester United), Elling Holland (Manchester City), and Ousmane Dembele (FC Barcelona) for big money.
The cost of bringing them all in was €160m, barely more than Bellingham’s transfer fee. But the money they made selling them to other teams was nearly four times as much: €388 million ($542.4 million).
The net profit alone is jaw-dropping at €287.4 million. That’s how well Dortmund did business.
The Bellingham void will also be filled by big-money transfers. That’s how Dortmund has managed to keep their status as a powerhouse even when they’ve sold so many players.
