Hannover 96 celebrates the rise of Werder Bremen. The club does not do this because they have great sympathy for each other, but because the 96ers receive a welcome bonus payment for Ducksch on top of that.
With 21 goals and 10 assists, Marvin Ducksch was one of the guarantors of Bremen’s promotion. But this is now costing the Werder team dearly. The player came to Bremen from Hannover 96 after the 4th matchday and cost 3.5 million euros. But that’s not all.
BILDAccording to information, 96 sports director Marcus Mann negotiated a clause with Frank Baumann that said that if Bremen were promoted, an additional 200,000 euros would be due. But that’s not all: Werder Bremen have to pay around 500,000 euros in arrears because they played 29 games for SVW. So there must have been a games clause as well.
Werder Bremen will be able to get over the already quite lavish additional payments in view of the promotion. After all, without top striker Ducksch, it would probably have been nothing with the return to the upper house. However, the SVW must fear losing the attacker again. The player has a €5.5m release clause and is being courted by several clubs.
Hannover 96, on the other hand, has a little more cash in hand to finally be able to find a successor for the 28-year-old attacker. Stefan Leitl’s preferred candidate would be Branimir Hrogota, who, with a transfer fee of 1.5 million euros, is still likely to be too expensive for the financially strapped club.
