Bayern closes with three more signings

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, free agent; Douglas Costa, on loan; and Bouna Sarr arrive on the last day to give depth and form a dream squad.


Bayern put the icing on their planning on one of the busiest market closing days ever in the offices of the brand-new Champions League champion. After having already announced the signings of Leroy Sané (City), Alexander Nübel (Schalke), Tanguy Kouassi (PSG) and Marc Roca (Espanyol), the Allianz Arena team was once again one of the protagonists on the last day of the market by slamming three more additions: Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, Douglas Costa and Bouna Sarr arrive.

Choupo-Moting, free agent after ending contract at PSG, lands in Munich to rest Lewandowski in attack. He signed until 2021. Douglas Costa is on loan from Juve until the end of the season and will be Sané's alternative on the left wing of the club where he already played between 2015 and 2017. And Sarr, in the absence of official status, comes for 10 kilos from from Marseille and will be Pavard's natural replacement on the right back. In total, Bayern spent 54 kilos on seven players.

“Eric gives our squad, above all, depth in attack, especially like nine, depth that we need. Eric gained international experience at Paris Saint-Germain, knows the Bundesliga, Eric arrives for free. Everything fits very well, “sports director Hasan Salihamidzic was quoted in the club's official statement. On Costa he added: “It gives the coach the opportunity to dose the appearances sensibly. Douglas knows Bayern and will get to know him very quickly. ”

The players themselves could not have been more happy to join the ranks of the team that has just signed the championship title (Champions, Bundesliga, Pokal, European Super Cup and German Super Cup). "Who wouldn't want to play for Bayern? It is an honor to play for this club. At Bayern, the goal is always to win everything and I am very motivated to achieve those goals, "was delighted Choupo-Moting, an old acquaintance in the Bundesliga after his stints in Hamburg, Nuremberg, Mainz and Schalke. Costa added: “I am very happy to be back at Bayern. I had a wonderful time in Munich with many successes and I am sure we will win titles again now. ”
