RB loaned Augustin to the English in January 2020. Additionally, the loan deal included a €21m buy-in obligation, which was activated with Leeds’ promotion to the Premier League. However, the Premier League club refused to pay Augustin’s transfer fee, arguing that the lockdown in England’s professional leagues made the purchase obligation invalid.

After a FIFA judgment from June 2021, which failed in favor of Leipzig, Leeds appealed to CAS. On Friday, the court rejected the appeal and again found RB right.

Leeds can now appeal to the Swiss Federal Supreme Court. According to RB, “the procedural hurdles for this are very high and no points of attack against the CAS decision are to be expected.”

For the Bundesliga club, “the outcome of the process is therefore entirely in the interests of RB Leipzig.” The Saxons had previously commissioned a legal opinion that indicated a high probability of a positive verdict. To picture-The Red Bulls have already calculated the Augustin millions in previous transfer periods and are therefore also willing to invest. The CAS ruling therefore probably has no influence on the current transfer budget.
