They've already been spent: RB Leipzig is still waiting for Augustin millions

Jean-Kevin Augustin played for RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga from 2016 to 2019. At that time, the cops paid 16 million euros to Paris St. Germain. After a loan to AS Monaco, the Frenchman moved to Leeds United in the second English division. As a result of promotion to the Premier League, a purchase obligation became binding for the English.

Leeds had to shell out a proud 21 million euros for Augustin after promotion. But the people of Leipzig have still not received the coal. There was already a hearing before the International Sports Court CAS in March - a final judgment has still not been served.

A first FIFA ruling from June 2021 states that the Red Bulls are entitled to the requested transfer fee. However, the England club appealed and so the CAS now has to decide on the transfer dispute. A decision should be made by early November. By December at the latest, the new sports director Max Eberl will also join RB Leipzig.

The new strong man at RB has nothing from the transfer fee. Because the people of Leipzig have already "spent" the 21 million euros according to image information in past transfer periods. The club had commissioned a legal opinion, which gave the club a high probability of a positive verdict - so they were generous in advance. But the bulls are also hoping that the millions will flow into the account this year.

For Eberl, this fact shouldn't be a problem either way. As the picture reports, the club wants to be active again in the winter in the transfer market. The former Gladbach sports director was also brought in for this. He should provide bargains with his super eye.
