Out of place, he makes a surprise move to a rival team.
“Marcel Xavi (29, Bayern Munich) is moving to Borussia Dortmund,” Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, who is well versed in the transfer market, reported on Thursday (April 24). The transfer fee is reportedly around 19 million euros (about 26.9 billion won).
Zabic was once one of the best midfielders in the German Bundesliga. He’s a prolific midfielder who gets all over the field. He also has a powerful right-footed kick and mid-range shooting ability.
After proving himself at Leipzig, he opted to move to Munich in 2021. However, he had a disappointing time. He was overshadowed by stronger midfielders like Josua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka and didn’t get many chances. In 54 appearances for Munich, he scored two goals and provided two assists.
For a change of pace, he opted for a loan spell at Manchester United last winter. The Red Devils were looking for a new 카지노 midfielder after an injury to Christian Eriksen. The interests were aligned.
But he had a so-so season. Three goals and one assist in 18 games. At the end of the season, he suffered a major injury that kept him out for the rest of the season. United didn’t opt for a full buyout, and Xavi returned to his original club Munich.
He was back in the same position. Munich didn’t want to play him, and he was sold to Dortmund.
Coincidentally, Dortmund is the team that annually challenges Munich for the Bundesliga title. Last season, they came from behind to win the league title in the final game. Xavier will now take aim at Munich’s goal for Dortmund.
Meanwhile, Munich recently made a big splash with the signing of Kim Min-Jae. They are also preparing to sign Tottenham Hotspur ace Harry Kane. In the meantime, we’re clearing out the players who have been categorized as non-performers, such as Xavi.
