Transfers: Will Bayer’s Julian Brandt Become A Snapper Thanks To The Clause?

National player Julian Brandt (22) is one of the “players to watch” in the Bundesliga. The offensive all-rounder of Bayer Leverkusen is courted by FC Bayern Munich, among others – and could be a real bargain thanks to the exit clause.

As reported by the kicker on Monday, the German national player has had a clause incorporated into his working paper, dated 30 June 2021, at his last contract extension at Bayer 04 Leverkusen.

According to the trade journal, this is “12 million plus performance-related surcharges.”

This means that Brandt would definitely leave Bayer Leverkusen well below market value.

“Julian Brandt”, as adviser legend Wolfgang Karnath (65) to, “will be the next superstar of Bayer Leverkusen”.

That is possible. According to the portal Julian Brandt is with a market value of 40 million euros to Kai Havertz (19), whose value is estimated at 65 million euros, the most valuable player in the squad of coach Peter Bosz.

The success of the Confederations Cup 2017 in Russia with the German national soccer team has brought Brandt into the spotlight. In July 2018 – regardless of the messed up World Cup for Germany – its market value is even at 45 million euros. The stipulated replacement of the new clause should “now be more than 100 percent higher.”

According to this information, the Werkself could sell Brandt for around EUR 25 million to EUR 30 million – and the expected sum would also remain well below market value. It is unlikely that the Bayer bosses around Rudi Völler and Simon Rolfes will play there.
