Top 5 most successful English Premier contracts from Bundesliga
England has witnessed many foreign players come and play extremely well. Let’s take a look at the top 5 most successful English Premier contracts from the Bundesliga.
5. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Arsenal)
From before moving to Arsenal, the Gabon played for Dortmund for five seasons and left a deep impression. Coming to England, Aubameyang quickly asserted its value.
The 30-year-old has played 75 matches in the past 3 seasons and scored 49 goals. Aubameyang’s steady scoring performance, plus the contribution of the “Gunners” play, has helped him to be a big eye for many big clubs, including Real Madrid and Barcelona.
4. Kevin De Bruyne (Man City)
Chelsea was the first club in the English Premier League to bring De Bruyne to the “Land of Mist” in 2012. However, the player had to leave because it didn’t fit the way the Blues played.
In the 2012/13 season, Werder Bremen borrowed a Belgian from Chelsea. In the 2013/14 season, Wolfsburg bought this talented midfielder and then he shined brightly in the 2014/15 season.
Witnessing the remarkable progress of KDB, Man City bought the Belgian star for £ 55 million and now it is clear that the player is a genius.
3. Michael Ballack (Chelsea)
Chelsea is a club that loves to buy players from the Bundesliga and Ligue 1. Many signings bring a breakthrough, typically Michael Ballack.
Leaving Bayern Munich in 2006, Ballack moved to Stamford Bridge on a free transfer. This legend played 105 matches in the English Premier League and left many imprints. With Chelsea, Ballack won 1 Premier League title, 2 FA Cups and 1 League Cup.
2. Leroy Sane (Man City)
What Sane did at Schalke 04 and before that Bayer Leverkusen caught the eye of Pep Guardiola. Man City decided to spend £ 37 million bringing the winger to Etihad and he did not disappoint the team leader.
In the 2017/18 season, Sane impressed when he scored 14 goals and had 15 assists. Closing the season, he was voted PFA Young Player of the Year. Currently, Bayern Munich is very hungry for Sane’s signature.
1. Vincent Kompany (Man City)
Before the Abu Dhabi Group bought Man City, Vincent Kompany was brought in from Hamburg in 2008. Since then, he has been a part of Manchester club’s history.
Kompany became the captain, who led his teammates in 11 seasons from 2008 to 2019. The Belgian center-back and The Citizens won 4 Premier League titles, 2 FA Cups, 4 League Cups and 2 English Super Cups.
Since Kompany left, City have yet to find a worthy replacement.
