Sebastien Haller – Net Worth
Any club wanting to buy Haller would also have to pay a premium, and much more than the £6 million Frankfurt paid for him last Summer to buy him from FC Utrecht.
Newcastle would have to break their 14 year old transfer record if they wanted to sign the striker, and with Mike Ashley wanting to sell the club, this could see any deal collapse.
Also, with Frankfurt sitting in fifth place in the Bundesliga, they would be reluctant to sell their prized asset.
Things you didn’t know about Sebastien Haller!
Haller was a France U21 teammate of fellow Bundesliga stars Benjamin Pavard and Corentin Tolisso, of VfB Stuttgart and Bayern Munich respectively. All three started the last time Haller pulled on the dark blue shirt of his nation – as did Paris Saint-Germain pair Adrien Rabiot and Presnel Kimpembe – in a 1-0 win over Northern Ireland at the UEFA European U21 Championship in 2015.
All except Haller went on to win full international recognition, with Rabiot the only one who didn’t make it to Russia. Without a senior cap, Haller remains eligible for Cote d’Ivoire, for whom he qualifies through his mother…
