Bayern Munich director: Fewer ‘Pogba deals’ to happen in future

Michael Reschke has explained why he believes world-record fees such as Paul Pogba's transfer to Manchester United will become less frequent in the future

Bayern Munich technical director Michael Reschke has explained why he believes world-record fees such as Paul Pogba’s transfer to Manchester United will become less frequent in the future…

“There was one transfer in excess of 100 million euros last season, Pogba, and maybe you could mention Gonzalo Higuain in the same bracket with 90 million euros,” Reschke told El Pais.

“But I predict fewer transfers of that stature in the future. Big clubs simply do not want to sell their best players. And the best players are already at these clubs.

“They only leave when their contract expires, like Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Dani Alves. Maybe you are able to buy someone when he only has one more year left on his contract.

“The best players are already at Real Madrid, Barcelona, Atletico [Madrid], the big Premier League clubs, Bayern, Borussia Dortmund and Paris Saint-Germain.”
