25 million euros, but delayed: Here’s how the Schade transfer works

Kevin Schade will be Freiburg’s new record transfer, but only with a delay. After an injury break and a poor record recently, the national U-21 player needs to show he can cope with the Premier League. His move to Brentford has implications for two SC pros.

Kevin Schade is about to move from Freiburg to England.


The SC Freiburg entourage will fly this morning from Zurich to Malaga, from where they will continue to the traditional winter training camp in Sotogrande, Andalusia. While Christian Streich’s side will train for the first time at the Santa Maria Polo Club, the official confirmation of a major transfer, which materialized yesterday, is also expected in the afternoon.

Exceptional affair for the SC which does not lose one of the most efficient

Kevin Schade, who was initially tied until 2026, is moving to FC Brentford and will in all likelihood become Freiburg’s new record transfer. However, with a little delay. Because the sports club is doing so well in the current season in terms of sport and economy – this summer the move of Nico Schlotterbeck (BVB) has already brought in at least 20 million euros, the round of 16 of the DFB Cup and the Europa League guarantee matching bonuses – most importantly if Schade’s proceeds are paid out in the next financial year.

Six-month loan and purchase obligation with low threshold conditions

According to information from kicker, Freiburg officials have agreed the following model with the Premier League club London: First, Schade will be loaned to Brentford until the end of the season, then an obligation to purchase will apply. This is tied to very low threshold conditions, such as the Bees most likely staying in the league or an otherwise low number of bets Schade can make. The whole amounts to 25 million euros in total, of which approximately one million euros is attributable to the half-yearly rent. Bonuses based on success and a resell bonus will increase and may increase in amount in the future.

An exceptional deal for the SC, who coached Schade himself from the age of 16, but managed his current record season almost without much impetus from the attacking player. The Fribourgeois lose an exciting talent, but no top player.

Contract until 2028 – solidarity payments to Babelsberg and Cottbus

If all goes well, Schade will have a high-paying contract with FC Brentford until 2028. The Potsdam-born, whose early training clubs SV Babelsberg and Energie Cottbus can expect handsome transfer solidarity payments, he has already achieved a major goal by settling in England. London’s relatively small neighborhood club shouldn’t be the end of everyone’s dreams. Schade would like to recommend himself there for one of the best English clubs.

To do this, talent, gifted above all with speed – the 36.37 km / h measured in 2021/22 is a flagship value in the Bundesliga – must stabilize and improve. From March to September, the five-time German U-21 international (four goals) did not play a match due to an operated abdominal muscle injury.

The long period of suffering triggered a reflection

The 306 minutes of competition achieved after the Joker’s return on Matchday 6 of the Bundesliga – spread over twelve appearances in which he started only twice, otherwise he was completely benched four times – as well as a goal and two assists leave plenty of room. for improvement. Schade knows this too, for whom the long period of suffering has also triggered a second thought. Towards even more professionalism, as the light-footed sprinter with the precise shot in front of him got a lot more and didn’t have to work as hard as others for similar results.

Only 36 professional appearances so far – Schade needs to stabilize and rise

Schade, for example, has benefited from nutritional advice but still needs to improve, especially in terms of physical stability, especially for the Premier League. The 1.83 meter man weighed 74 kilos in the summer. If he does not fly over his opponents with his speed, he loses many physical duels. So far there are only 36 professional appearances (six goals, four assists) in his vita, he played only 17 times longer than 30 minutes.

Since the league’s break in mid-November, however, Schade seems to be on the right track. He scored a goal as a centre-forward in the U21s’ 4-2 win in Italy and made an overall good impression. The question of the position is usually exciting, since he has mainly worked on the flank in the DFB and SC so far. This was also the case in the December friendlies against Lucerne (2-2), when he started on the left, den KSC (3-2), when Schade scored a goal from the right and provided an assist, and Bern (1-1, right).

Exciting question of position: out or in the middle of the storm?

Interesting where Danish Brentford coach Thomas Frank values ​​him the most. The fact that he is to receive the number 9 shirt, which has yet to be assigned, could be an indication of at least a mid-term home at the HQ. Either way, Schade, for whom another highlight awaits with the European U-21 Championship in June, must first recommend himself for assignments and show overall that he is physically and mentally up to snuff. the height of the intensive Premier League.

Rather no loan Weißhaupt, Sallai, who is ready to change, must also stay

His change also impacts two former SC colleagues. The loan of fellow U-21 international Noah Weißhaupt, who is based on the attacking flanks, with the aim of training more, will probably no longer take place. And Hungarian national player Roland Sallai, who was already imagining a move to a big European club last summer and has changed consultants three times since then to force a winter farewell, will not leave SC during the current transfer window.
