Then there seems to be this belief that Brands can come up with a gem from abroad. But buying from abroad is always a risk. For example we could go for a player like Jonathan Tah from Leverkusen (just an example), but no matter how good he is in Germany, no matter how high his perceived potential, buying him would be a gamble.
I don't know, I could well be wrong but my outlook is that Keane is not really a big problem in the team, selling him would potentially create another problem, a problem where would need two CBs in the summer.
Not saying we should or shouldn't, but there's a wealth of young CB talent in Germany right now. Besides Tah (22), there's Zagadou (19) and Akanji (23) at Dortmund, Konaté (19) and Upamecano (20) at Leipzig, N'Dicka (19) at Eintracht, Elvedi (22) at Gladbach, and others of course.
