The former Bayer Leverkusen and Germany goalkeeper Rene Adler has created a new transfer platform specially designed for football players and clubs to find each other.
Since the summer transfer window is around the corner, and more and more clubs are looking to strengthen their squad for the upcoming season, this app will be like Tinder for players and clubs, as Rene Adler said himself. The former goalkeeper said that the “11TransFair” app is mainly designed to give footballers more control over their future football plans and bring transparency into a non-transparent market.
What is 11TransFair?
Rene Adler linked this app to one of the most popular dating apps in the 21st century, Tinder. In an interview for BILD, the German said that with the help of players, managers, lawyers and transfer experts, he was able to release the app for the first time. He later added that this platform would help professional footballers choose their own path and no longer depend on their football advisors and agents.
How does the app work?
The first thing you should know is that this app is completely free, and it does not require any payment upon downloading. Once professional players download the app, they will have to enter their salary requirements as well as select four primary attributes out of 20 possible options. If a player successfully finds a new club through the app, the club will have to pay a commission to the app operator.
For now, the app is only available in the top four leagues in Germany, but the former German goalkeeper believes that 11TransFair will be the go-to app when it comes to transfers across Europe.
