There will be a number of prominent newcomers in the next season. We have lined up a few fresh recruits for the new campaign:

  • Sadio Mane

At 32 million euros from Liverpool, this is the second most expensive transfer in Bundesliga this transfer window.

  • Matthijs De Ligt

The 22-year-old Dutch international has been acquired by FC Bayern from Juventus for a staggering amount of 80 million euros. De Ligt played 117 times for Juventus, where he won the Serie A championship and the Coppa Italia. The deal runs through June 30, 2027.

Borussia Dortmund has signed Ivory Coast’s Sebastien Haller . The 28-year-old forward is leaving Ajax and joining BVB. By the end of the last season, Haller had 21 goals, and after helping Ajax reach the round of 16 with 11 goals, he finished third in the Champions League rankings.

  • Ryan Gravenberch

Ryan Gravenberch has been acquired by Bayern Munich from Ajax Amsterdam. The 20-year-old Dutch international played 103 times for Ajax’s first squad and scored 12 goals during that time.

Players to Look Out For

There are several young players and well-known big stars competing for different teams in the new Bundesliga season. Here is a brief list of some players to keep an eye on in this new season.

  • Sadio Mane

His desire to be a key player on the field is clear from his early performances as a Senegalese international. He was one of the important players and played a crucial role for Liverpool. He appeared in 269 games, with 120 goals and 38 assists. He will be anticipating a significant gap to fill as Lewandoski leaves.

  • Karim Adeyemi

The large shoes left by Erling Haaland are expected to be filled by Karim Adeyemi in the upcoming campaign. Karim Adeyemi is highly regarded by coach Hansi Flick and has already earned a position on the German national team. We anticipate good chemistry between him and Reus, Bellingham, and Brandt in the upcoming season, which might result in him being among the best player.

  • Ryan Gravenberch

Last season, the Ajax teenager developed as one of Europe’s top midfielders, and FC Bayern has acquired a true masterpiece at a fantastic price. The Dutch midfielder is big, powerful, and endowed with tremendous stamina. He also possesses excellent ball control and talents. We anticipate some outstanding game performance and assists from him. He contributes significantly to the team.

  • Jeremie Frimpong

Last season, he made 25 starts and had six assists. Given his tremendous potential last season, there are extremely high hopes for him moving into. Despite having a terrible rookie season, he woke up and had a fantastic comeback, earning himself a berth in the starting eleven.
