FC Bayern sells Chris Richards to Crystal Palace – FC Dallas also cashes
« It was his big wish »
FC Bayern certainly has the next transfer income. Central defender Chris Richards leaves the German record champion and joins Crystal Palace. The 22-year-old has a contract with the Premier League club until June 2027. The basic fee is said to be €12m including bonuses of up to €20m. The former club FC Dallas will have a percentage of the transfer, according to the « kicker » with 35 percent.
American Richards moved from the Texans to Säbener Straße in 2018 but has only played eight competitive games for the pros since then and would likely only have remained as a reserve in defense in the new season. Most recently, the defender was loaned out to TSG 1899 Hoffenheim. FC Bayern have now garnered around 75 million euros in sales this summer. On the other hand, almost 140 million euros were spent on five newcomers.
« Chris Richards came to the FC Bayern campus at the age of 18. He showed his talent in his first year playing for our second team. That’s why we signed him from FC Dallas, and Chris then developed very well on loan at Hoffenheim. It was now his big wish to assert himself in the Premiere League. We wanted to make that possible for him and we wish him all the best at Crystal Palace. » sportsman Hasan Salihamidzic.
