RB Leipzig Transfer News

Last Modified Oct 27, 2021 11:09 GMT

Promoted in 2016, RB Leipzig have taken the alternate rule in the Bundesliga. The side from East Germany have found a way to bypass the 50+1 rule that keeps a cap on how much money a club can spend on players or wages.


Owned by Red Bull, the club spent good money to pretty much seal promotion to the Bundesliga and since then, they have done well to challenge even Bayern Munich. No one really expected them to challenge Bayern for the league title and for 25 odd game weeks, they did that.


Obviously no one can match Bayern’s squad depth by being cagey in the transfer window. Leipzig’s transfer plan is to sign players who are young, have potential and a good resale value.


While Leipzig don’t have as many prominent players as Bayern and Borussia Dortmund, if they can keep their consistency in the top flight, they could have a star-studded squad in the coming years.


RB Leipzig – Recent Signings


Leipzig add more experience and quality to their midfield in the summer of 2017 when they signed Kevin Kampl from Bayer Leverkusen for £18 miollion. Jean-Kevin Augustin and Konrad Laimer are pretty young and were signed keeping the future in mind. Bruma was signed to add more pace on the wings.


Davie Selke, who didn’t get enough game time at the club, was sold to Hertha Berlin for £7.2 million. Oliver Burke too left the club after failing to impress. He was moved on to West Brom.
