Dortmund’s profit from selling four players is 400 billion won.
Dortmund announced on their official website on July 7, “Bellingham is moving from Dortmund to Real Madrid. An agreement was reached today. The details of the contract still need to be harmonized and documented. If the transfer is executed, Dortmund will receive a fixed transfer fee of €130 million. On top of that, an additional fee of up to 30 percent (€30.9 million – approximately KRW 43 billion) has been agreed upon. This will depend on how well he performs at Real over the next six seasons,” the official statement said.
At the same time, European transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano reported that “Real have agreed to sign Bellingham. It’s a €130 million deal with a 30% add-on. Real want the deal to be finalized this week.” “Bellingham will sign a six-year contract until June 2029. This was agreed in April. A medical has been scheduled and a statement from the club will be released.”
It is a mega-deal with a base transfer fee of 144 billion won and 43 billion won in add-ons, totaling 187 billion won 토토사이트.
Bellingham was born in 2003 and made his professional debut at the age of 16 for Birmingham City. It was the emergence of an extraordinary talent. He then turned down a move to Manchester United and headed to Dortmund. This was because he was guaranteed more playing time. As expected, Bellingham was a regular starter at Dortmund, which nourished his development.
Bellingham’s performance in the 2022-23 season was particularly impressive. He made an impact not only in the German Bundesliga, but also in the UEFA Champions League (UCL). Despite being a midfield resource, he produced 14 goals and seven assists in all competitions combined. Add in his performances for the England national team, and his price tag skyrocketed. He was linked to English Premier League (EPL) clubs like Manchester United, Liverpool, and Chelsea, but his final destination was Real.
Real are undergoing a generational change. They are adding new energy, especially in the midfield. Eduardo Kamabinga and Aurélien Chouameni were brought in for the same reason. Bellingham is no different. Bellingham is likely to replace Luka Modric in the future. He has the skills to fill the role you’d expect from Modric: control of the midfield and the ability to create offense.
Then, on August 8, the soccer statistics site TransferMarkt highlighted Dortmund’s transfer revenue. There were four players in total: Ousmane Dembele, Jadon Sancho, Elling Holland, and Bellingham.
First up is Dembele, who was brought in for €35 million and sold to Barcelona for €140 million. Sancho was signed for €20.6 million and sold for €85 million. Holland came in for €20 million and left for €60 million. Finally, Bellingham joined for €25 million and left for €130 million.
Total expenditures were €100.6 million and total income was €388 million. The profit alone was €287.4 million. These are the basic transfer fees.
There are many other players who have left for huge sums of money, but these four are just a few.
