Transfer Information

Steffen’s contract at Columbus Crew nearly expires, so he won’t cost a load of money. As manager of Manchester City we managed to buy him for 2.5M + 30% on profit on the next sale and a friendly match. For the bigger European clubs he’ll be a decent reserve. However, teams below the top have a cheap option for a first team keeper.

Zack Steffen – 2018

He is one of the best goalies in the MLS and is, without a doubt, a solid number one for Columbus Crew. However, his contract expires when the American season ends.

Zack Steffen – 2028

We can see that Steffen didn’t make the right decisions by going to Bayern Munich and later Schalke 04. He was mainly a reserve for those teams and those mistakes cost him a chance in the later stages of his career. But if you give Steffen plenty of playing time, he will grow to be a decent goalkeeper.
