I doubt a club will just pump a one time windfall into transfers. That sounds a bit reckless. I'd guess they will rather use it to handle their debt and build their new stadium (that's still an ambition, right?) without bleeding out on the sporting side.So today the biggest ever investment in German football was announced.
Hertha BSC will receive 125 million € right away and supposedly yet another 125 million € next season for 49.9% of the club.
These numbers may sound underwhelming to English ears but they're pretty huge for a German mid-table team.
Unfortunately Hertha had amassed over 100 million € in debt so they won't be able to invest it all but it definitely changes their outlook. They could turn into a top 6 team (like they used to be not that long ago) if they invest the money right.
