Beyond Expectations: The Most Epic Bundesliga Transfers!

The German Bundesliga is one of the most popular football competitions around the globe. As a nation, Germany has four World Cup titles and three European crowns, and the Bundesliga has numerous European and world accolades. 

Bayern Munich is the top team in this country, but several others are globally known, too. Borussia Dortmund, Hamburg, Borussia Monchengladbach, Bayer Leverkusen, etc, all these clubs have a massive reputation. The clash between Galatasaray and Bayern will definitely have to go into the top seven football matches in October 2023 in the entire Europe. This tells enough about the importance of this league.

As one of the biggest leagues in the world, the German national championship generates a massive amount of money. Bundesliga transfers are among the highest, and we are here to present the top six deals in German football. 

Here they are:

  • Ousmane Dembele
  • Jude Bellingham
  • Harry Kane
  • Randal Kolo Muani
  • Josko Gvaridol
  • Jadon Sancho

Top 6 Bundesliga Deals

Ousmane Dembele 

Ousmane Dembele’s move from Dortmund to Barcelona is still the highest in Germany despite the fact that it took place five years ago. It was reportedly worth around €135 million, which was among the biggest in the world. 

The pacey French striker moved to Barca as one of the biggest prospects ever, but he never reached his full potential there. Blaugrana fans were frustrated because of his constant injuries and the fact that he often missed games, if not because of his health, then due to personal reasons. 

In 185 appearances for the Spanish giant, he scored 40 goals and was transferred at the start of this campaign to PSG, labelled as one of the biggest busts in Barca’s history. 

Jude Bellingham

The English midfielder is another transfer from Borussia that found his name on this list. He came from Birmingham to Dortmund, where he spent three years, playing 132 games and becoming one of the best midfielders in the world.

Even though he is only 20 years old, Real didn’t save its money but decided to splash the cash and sign the young Englishman, securing its midfield for the upcoming several years. Bellingham has unseen talent and is projected to be one of the best midfielders ever. 

He immediately took over the leading role in Real’s middle, forming a young line with Camavinga, Valverde, and Tchouameni. 

Harry Kane

Another Englishman is on the list, only this one came to Germany instead of leaving it. Harry Kane, Tottenham’s and England’s captain, decided to leave London and move to Bayern. One of the most prolific strikers in this century was without a trophy throughout his entire career, which is the main reason he decided to leave the Spurs. 

With Bayern, he not only has the chance to win the Bundesliga but the Champions League as well. Just to remind you, Bayern leads the Bundesliga champions list with 32 titles. Kane jumped into Robert Lewandowski’s spot, instantly producing numbers the Polish striker did.

Randal Kolo Muani

The French striker could be remembered for the last-minute miss in the 2022 World Cup finals when he wasted a chance to bring his country the third WC trophy. Instead of routinely beating Martinez, he smashed the ball, eventually hitting the Argentinian’s goalkeeper and deflected.

Still, that didn’t prevent PSG from offering €95 million to Eintracht and buying the 24-year-old, who was fantastic while playing for the Eagles. During the 2022/23 campaign, he exploded in Frankfurt, netting 23 goals in 46 appearances. After Messi and Neymar left Parc des Princes, Kolo Muani came as their replacement in the attack. 

Josko Gvaridol

RB Leipzig is slowly becoming a factory for young and talented players. Gvardiol is the last one in the line of excellent prospects sold from the East German team, which earned quite a lot of money in the previous few years. 

His transfer to Manchester City was worth €90 million, and the reigning European and English champs didn’t want to hold on and risk him picking some other destination. The way the young Croatian defender played at the World Cup was enough for the English unit to sign him, and for the moment, it appears their decision was correct. 

Jadon Sancho

While he played for Borussia Dortmund, Sancho was considered the next big thing on the flak, arguably the biggest talent of his generation. He was unguardable in Germany, but Sancho’s star started fading after his transfer to Manchester United. 

He didn’t adapt to the Red Devils’ system following Erik Ten Hag’s landing at Old Trafford. At first, he became a rotation player before earning the label of a big bust. 

Recent Big Bundesliga Transactions

There were several other massive transfers in Bundesliga history worth mentioning, like the one with Kai Havertz leaving Bayer Leverkusen and signing for Arsenal. The most recent big-time move was Dominic Szoboszlai’s transfer from RB Leipzig to Liverpool, worth around €70 million.
