Matys Tel has completed his transfer from Stade Rennes to Bayern Munich, with Hasan Salihamidzic describing the young striker as ‘one of the greatest talents in Europe’.
Tel broke into the Rennes side last season, becoming the club’s youngest ever player in August and going on to make 10 appearances in all competitions.
Although he is yet to score a senior goal, the 17-year-old has been prolific at the youth level and has scored five goals in seven games for France Under 17s.
“FC Bayern is one of the best teams in the world. I’m really looking forward to this great challenge and will give everything for this club”, Tel said.
“The talks with Hasan Salihamidzic and those responsible at FC Bayern really impressed me and made me quickly realize that I absolutely wanted to go to Munich.”
