AC Horsens' significant investment does not go unnoticed, indicating the Danish club's confidence in Becher's potential. The $400,000 figure reflects not only the player's quality but also the growing competitiveness in the transfer market, where clubs are willing to spend substantial amounts to secure talents that can make a difference on the field.

On the other hand, the Vancouver Whitecaps secured a smart strategy by retaining a percentage of future sales of Becher. This clause demonstrates the long-term vision of the Canadian club, which, in addition to developing talents, seeks financial returns that can further boost its presence in the transfer market.
