Bayern technical director expects fewer big transfers

FC Bayern München technical director Michael Reschke is of the opinion that lucrative transfer deals will be few and far between in the future.

Paul Pogba moved from Juventus to Manchester United last year in a deal worth €105 million, the biggest transfer in football history, but Reschke doesn't believe that will happen again any time soon.

He feels that the top players are already at big clubs, which makes lucrative signings more and more unlikely.

"There was one transfer in excess of €100m last season, Pogba, and maybe you could mention Gonzalo Higuain in the same bracket with €90m," 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."
