2 Germans join RB Leipzig!
As I said at the end of the season, 6 players were already on pre-contract with us, and we covered almost all the positions where we needed backup. But, I’ve also said that we need a very good central defender, one that will be a star in Bundesliga...and we’ve found that player in FC Bayern’s Niklas Süle!
The other signing is a right back , as we had Roberto Hilbert as a backup, and I am looking to sell him, as he can’t perform anymore at this level! I decided that the player which should replace Hilbert will be Andreas Beck, Hoffenheim’s defender.
Now we have a very solid squad and we won’t need to buy a lot of players in every summer transfer window like we did until now, and that it’s very pleasing! I’ve decided to sign two Germans as I felt that we are losing our National Identity with all those mixed nations we have in the squad...from now on, when we will need a player, I will look to sign a German!
Niklas was formed at Hoffenheim’s yputh academy, and there is also where he made his professional debute, but he played there just a season, as he was a very promising young player and attracted the giants attention! In 2014 he was bought by Guardiola at FC Bayern for a fee of 19.5 m euro.
He is a player of high value, and this players are usually very expensive..but this wasn’t the case! To be honest, I don’t know the reaseon why, but he was transfer listed by Bayern. He played in the last three season at least 20 matches every season for them and never had an average rating lower than 7.06...this was great for us! We signed an amazing player for a fee of just 10 m euro and I am sure that he will lead our club towards glory!
I think that pretty much everyone has heard of Andreas Beck...He was once seen as the future right back of the German national squad, I player with a lot of qualities! But, sadly for him, some injuries kept him away of fulfilling his potential..
Now, he is already 30 years old and he is pretty close to the end of his career...but he is still a very good player, and now with a lot of experience behind him!
@ MCox93 - thanks mate!
