Kevin de Bruyne's record transfer to Manchester City earned Wolfsburg a reported 79.8 million euros ($89.3 million), but there are concerns here about the drain of Bundesliga talent to England.Son Heung-min joined Tottenham Hotspur for 22 million pounds from Leverkusen last Friday after Liverpool paid Hoffenheim 29 million pounds for Roberto Firmino in June and Germany captain Bastian Schweinsteiger signed for Manchester United for 14 million pounds from Bayern Munich in July.Those four signings alone combined have earned their former Bundesliga clubs around 170 million euros, but there are concerns in Germany's top flight that the influx of cash will only widen the gap between the league's rich and poor.The De Bruyne transfer smashed the Bundesliga's transfer record and is a club record even for Abu Dhabi-backed City.But the deep pockets of England's Premier League sides means German clubs can expect to lose more future talent, according to Ralph Hasenhuettl, coach of newly promoted Ingolstadt, who are in their debut Bundesliga season.
