Hertha excludes transfers over 30 million euro

Hertha BSC does not want to make a new commitment for 30 or 40 million euros in spite of the investment deal with up to a quarter of a billion euros for the time being.

“In my view, it makes little sense because every transfer involves risks”, said Managing Director Michael Preetz in the training camp of the Berliners in Neuruppin.” I don’t think you can develop the team if you put in an expensive player and focus on him. Our goal is to develop the team as a whole.”

A spectacular transfer at this level would be”not excluded in the future, there might be one,”Preetz said. The entrepreneur Lars Windhorst had recently joined the football league with his holding company Tennor and had initially purchased 37,5 percent of the club’s professional division for 125 million euros. In addition, Hertha could again receive more than 100 million euros for another 12,4 percent.

The money will also cover liabilities and “invest in the future fields of the association”, explained Preetz. “The money will also cover liabilities and”invest in the future fields of the association”. First of all, there’s the team. We will invest, but carefully. We’re very happy about this deal. But if you do not act wisely, the money is also gone quickly.”So far, the Berliners have committed the Belgian national defender Dedryck Boyata and U21 national player Eduard Lion as new entrances.
