Athletic Bilbao has a special Problem. The Club has a very, very lot of money in the Bank account, can't use it, but in the transfer market. The Basques play a miserable season with already the second Trainer, you are seventeen, two points away from relegation place, on the account of around 200 million euros.
However, for strengthening Transfers and the club's philosophy is Bilbao in the way. Stating that only Basques are allowed to play in the Club. In other words: The choice of reinforcements is limited and the sporting future is always more of a risk.
Bilbao the romance paid were down this season with that many.
In Bilbao have spoken to the people yet always Proud of the regional selection. This leads the followers to phrases such as "I'd Rather lose games than our identity". You pay for the romance with defeats, this season with that many. Unaccustomed to the tradition of the club, yet he never descended. Something that you can say in Spain, only FC Barcelona and Real Madrid.
Unusual situations require unusual actions. So, recently named head of sports, Rafael Alkorta objectives officially, the Transfer: "We are interested in Javi Martinez, Ibai Gomez, Ander Herrera, Fernando Llorente." All Basque, all Disposals in previous years. But such Stars come back in the football province, in the Europa League games and Cupfinals belong to the highlights? At least Gomez tuts. to compensate
the self-imposed restriction on the transfer market, Bilbao invested in the past years, otherwise. The youth Department and Scouting are one of the best in Spain. In addition, the club has not to lose the connection, but to not also apply to racist, the shooting rules have been loosened, piece by piece. Today is: anyone Who was trained in the Basque country, soccer, darffür Athletic play, no matter what nationality he has.
The reason for the richness
Bilbao's wealth has to do with his position, on the transfer market, but also in front of Spain's screens. Only four clubs have received last year, and more TV money. The games in Bilbao are one of the most-watched in the country, which is reflected directly on the TV-revenue.
And there are receipts for the Transfer. The Association writes in its players for high transfer fees in the contracts – in the hope that you will never be paid. Sometimes, however, the deterrence is not effective, sometimes the sums are actually paid, as in the summer, but the departure of goalkeeper Kepa to Chelsea for 80 million euros. If a European big club shows interest, dwindling loyalty and fidelity to Principles.
Bilbao gets a lot of money for its footballer . But in return, the Club will have to pay more for them. Each club is asked by the Basques because of a player that knows how limited their options in the transfer market and drives the price up. Last seen Berchiche in the Transfer of PSG player Yuri. 24 million euros Bilbao paid in the summer for the defender, who moved a year earlier to 8 million from Sociedad to Paris. to take
the players also the temptation of a bill of exchange, shall pay to the Club above-average wages. 4 million euros, the average salary in the country was in the first team, told Josu Urrutia recently, the New York Times. The man was until the end of 2018, the club President.
there is Good news nevertheless. The 26-year-old Iker Muniain has renewed before Christmas, although always well-known clubs are interested in him. In his new contract there is no fixed transfer fee. He wants to stay. (Tages-Anzeiger.ch/Newsnet)
