Sky Germany and George Moissidis of the Bundesrepublik's preeminent footballing publication now report that VfB Stuttgart are set to pocket approximately €800,000 on the permanent sale of former German youth international Mateo Klimowicz.
The son of popular Bundesliga player Diego Klimowicz was once presaged to be one of Germany's future stars by the coaching and administrative team at Stuttgart. The young attacker was part of the Stefan Kuntz coached Germany U21 side that won the UEFA U21 European Championship in the summer of 2021. As his development failed to progress in line with his potential, however, Klimowicz was demoted to the reserve squad and eventually loaned out to Mexico following an unsuccessful loan stint in Bielefeld.
Moissidis writes that the two clubs responsible for the current arrangement originally negotiated a €1.5 million purchase option. It looks to be the case that the Swabians will be happy to shed themselves of him for a little over half that amount. Klimowicz has made 36 appearances across all competitions for his current side, scoring three goals and notching one assist.
