Bayern Munich announce the signing of Yann Sommer
Bayern Munich confirm the signing of Yann Sommer.
Bayern Munich have confirmed the signing of goalkeeper Yann Sommer on a two-and-a-half-year deal.
The Bavarian club had been on the lookout for a new starting goalkeeper to fill in for Manuel Neuer, following the 2014 World Cup winner’s season-ending injury before Christmas.
Sommer, who joined Gladbach from Basel in the summer of 2014 and has played in 272 Bundesliga games while also representing Switzerland at the 2022 World Cup, is regarded as one of the most complete goalkeepers in the German top division.
The number one Swiss player Sommer is who they have as their man.

Speaking to his new club’s official website following the move, Sommer said: “I’m very excited about the new challenge at FC Bayern. It’s a big, powerful club. We’ve played against each other many times – I know the enormous quality and aura of this club. I’m proud that I’m now a part of FC Bayern.
“We have some big challenges ahead of us. I’m hugely looking forward to starting here with my new teammates, and to everything that is to come. I want to thank Borussia Mönchengladbach for eight and a half wonderful years and for enabling this transfer.”
Bayern CEO, and goalkeeping legend, Oliver Kahn stated that he was delighted to sign the player this January: “Yann Sommer is a valuable addition for us, because he has a wealth of international experience and has already played in the Bundesliga for many years.
“He has everything required to contribute immediately to our success. We’re certain we can achieve our goals with Yann Sommer.”
