Bradford Park Avenue have opened proceedings in the transfer window dramatically, by selling seven players involving fees.
The West Yorkshire club have racked up an outstanding total of £116M just from the past few days, with sales including five first-team players.
The first to leave was Spanish forward Domingo Brana
who agreed a deal in December to join Chelsea immediately in January for a fee of £29.5M.
Brana joined Bradford last season for a fee of £9M from Hull City after the Humberside fell victim to the Premier League relegation spots despite joining The Tigers for a large fee of £18M so they made a huge loss on their young striker.
After Matt Fletcher had left Bradford, Brana filled the Australian's void left behind, scoring ten league goals in 23 last season, scraping a Europa League spot in the process. Brana remains the Europa League's top scorer this season with 15 goals in 10 matches. He will be missed at Elland Road later this season.
After spending three successful seasons at The Avenue since arriving from Leicester City in 2020 - Bradford's first top-flight season, Tom Ince
has agreed his departure to Stoke City, with the club committing to a £2.5M loss on the winger compared to the £7.5M they paid to bring Ince to the club.
Making 30 league appearances in his first season, it was only last season that Ince made a real impact on the club's season. The winger scored nine league goals and created six in 31 games for Avenue. However his good form hasn't been rewarded this season, making only three appearances due to rising competition.
Despite trying their best to keep him at the club, Liverpool have activated Flavio Alcalá's
minimum fee release clause of £22M at Bradford to take the Mexican to Anfield.
Spotted alongside former Bradford midfielder Dan Dickinson at Cruz Azul, Alcalá was snapped up for £9M last season, making 27 league appearances for Bradford and he shone in the defensive scene in Chabukiani's side. However after eleven appearances this time around, Andrew Robertson must become the club's first-choice left-back now.
Perhaps one of Adam Chabukiani's biggest success stories, Min Young-Hoon
has been sold to Bundesliga outfit Wolfsburg for £34M.
Chabukiani proclaimed that the Korean midfielder was his own scouting work as the player signed for £1.3M from IFK Goteborg in 2021. After numerous mesmerising performances in the heart of Bradford's midfield, Young-Hoon's value hit the roof.
Bradford will receive £1M per month for the next year as the club strike a £32.7M profit on the young midfielder.
Following so much hype around him after his arrival, Pacato's
spell in West Yorkshire is over as Borussia Monchengladbach purchase the Brazilian striker for £13M.
After sealing impressive goalscoring records in Brazil with his boyhood team of Flamengo, fans heaped the pressure on Pacato to become their new Carabina-esque player. However, Pacato only managed to return four league goals in eighteen for Avenue.
But the club have made profit on the player, he was signed for £9.5M from Flamengo, but is sold for £3.5M more to Gladbach.
After many memorable times working under Chabukiani throughout his career, Stéphane Pires
has agreed to leave the club to go to Everton for £8.5M.
Pires was signed last season, shortly after Chabukiani took the Switzerland national team job and impressed many critics after joining from Crystal Palace. Last summer, Pires started in the World Cup Final which Chabukiani's Switzerland won against Holland in a historic penalty win which shook the footballing world.
Parting as the best of friends, Pires and Chabukiani will no doubt be hoping to link up again sometime in the future.
Finally, Vladislav Lazarov
has been sold to Swiss giants Basel. Lazarov failed to make a single first-team appearance for Bradford but the club have still turned over a profit for the Bulgarian.
After loan spells at both Spezia and Malmo FF, Lazarov's value rose despite never playing for his parent club, Bradford. Following Derby's 2021 Premier League relegation, Chabukiani signed the striker for £2.6M. He has now left for almost one million more than that as he jets off to the Swiss top-flight with Basel for £3.5M.
In terms of signings, Bradford have agreed deals for both Mallorca youngster Jean Nana
and Hércules' Damián Pérez
. Both players have been sent on loan to Bradford's non-league feeder club Woking. Mexican international goalkeeper Emmanuel Cervantes
has also joined Bradford for £1.3M from América.
