The spectacular Haaland transfer and its consequences

With the spectacular transfer of erling braut haaland, borussia dortmund has set an early marker in the title race this winter. BVB has not given up on the championship by a long shot.

The long-missing center forward is expected to help the club catch up in the fubball-bundesliga in the new year. Questions and answers about what is probably the most spectacular transfer this winter.

Why did BVB get haaland in the first place??

Because the bundesliga fourth absolutely needs a mittelsturmer and torjager. Even though coach lucien favre rejected precisely this type of player in the summer, managing director hans-joachim watzke admitted at the members’ meeting in november that it was a mistake not to have brought him in. The squad improvement now is also seen as a signal to the competition: BVB wants to attack once again in the title race. The attacker receives as a valuation the number 17. This was once worn by the brazilian defender dede, who was particularly appreciated by BVB fans.

Why didn’t haaland go to salzburg’s sister club in leipzig?

The saxons were very interested. On the one hand, however, it is clear from the statements that haaland saw better prospects for himself in dortmund. On the other hand, BVB has obviously made more of an effort. The competition at the red-bull club in leipzig with timo werner, patrik schick and yussuf poulsen is rougher. Already with trainer marco rose lieb leipzig a coveted man from the red-bull cosmos from salzburg to the competition go, because the saxons had other plans.

What does the transfer mean for BVB coach favre??

The swiss man was already wobbling precariously, but was ready to make concessions in tactics and in the presentation of the car. This was probably one of the reasons why BVB stabilized at the end of the season. But the transfer can be interpreted to mean that the club no longer takes the sensitivities of the sensitive ditherer favre into account. However, the 19-year-old haaland has so far been a talent, described by sporting director michael zorc as a "diamond in the rough". And favre seems to be the perfect coach with regard to such types of players – just think of young marco reus at monchengladbach, for example.

What are the consequences for offensive substitutes like mario gotze or paco alcacer??

The chances of using both do not exactly increase. Anyway, the duo was hardly first choice. Alcacer is now promptly brought in connection with atletico madrid, in gotze is allegedly interested hertha BSC. Whether either of them will actually leave the club in the winter, however, is questionable. Gotze is in the summer free and another type of player. If dortmund were to give up alcacer, borussia would be completely without a striker again if haaland were to get injured.

Can haaland play for BVB in the champions league at all??

Yes. The rule that players who transfer in the winter cannot play internationally for their new employer after playing in the european cup for their old club has long ceased to apply. Since the 2018/2019 season, up to three winter transfers from a club have been allowed to play for that club in the european cup, even if they played internationally for their former clubs in the first half of the year. Previously, this was only possible with a winter transfer.

Why costs haaland "only" 20 million euros in ablose?

Because of a contract clause. The actual market value is estimated at around 45 million euros. Of course, BVB will have to pay considerably more for the entire package: in addition to the transfer fee, there will be an annual salary of around eight million euros, according to "bild". Speculation is about a commission for the consultant, possible bonus payments could be added. If haaland were to fulfill his contract until 2024, it would be worth a total of just under 60 million euros.

What to expect from haaland?

The 19-year-old is considered a great promise in european soccer. Haaland is an international top talent, but also (still) no more. In austria, the norwegian was named "soccer player of the year" and scored 16 goals in 14 games – but the level of the german bundesliga is higher. In the champions league, meanwhile, he also scored eight times in six games, making him the most successful striker in the competition behind bayern munchen’s robert lewandowski. But expecting miracles would be presumptuous. However, haaland is considered to be down-to-earth, eager to learn and focused. He will assert himself at BVB and take the next step in his career.
