After intensive negotiations with Nottingham, the offer is said to have even doubled, as ' Sport1 ' reported. The transfer fee would ultimately have been 20 million euros plus five to six million euros in bonuses. If the Frankfurters lose one of their top players who is convincing in central midfield, that would be for them Hesse hard to take.
The Frankfurters can now breathe a sigh of relief, because as 'Sport1' reports, Djibril Sow is said to have turned down the offer from the English after a lot of time to think about it, although he could have earned twice as much there.
Even if Sow is undoubtedly an important player for Eintracht, the club would not have put any obstacles in the way of their top performer if they had opted for Nottingham. They would have agreed on a change. And even top players are not unsaleable, as sports director Markus Krösche said in the spring.
With Nottingham Forest, Sow would have been in the Premier League played. But the Champions League would not have been available for him there. With the Europa League victory, however, it is for Eintracht – and the premier class is what the Swiss national player dreams of. 'It was always my big goal to play in the Champions League with Eintracht,' he said at the training camp.
He is not done with Frankfurt yet. 'We have strengthened ourselves well and are ambitious,' he also said. Djibril Sow has signed his contract with SBU until 2024. The path is far from over.Source: watson.de
