Bayern Munich must sign Ryan Gravenberch, the Ajax Amsterdam midfielder, already a Dutch international at 20, on Saturday, reports the German daily Bild who met the player on his arrival in Munich.
The transfer fee is estimated at 18.5 million euros plus 5.5 million possible bonuses, and his contract, according to Bild, will run until 2027. “Bayern are a big club, I think here you have to win big titles. And that’s what I hope, I’m happy to be here in Munich, « said the young talent, whose recruitment had been in the air for several weeks.
Gravenberch is Bayern’s second signing for next season, after Moroccan Noussair Mazraoui, also from Ajax. His arrival will strengthen the midfield and will relieve the essential duo Leon Goretzka-Joshua Kimmich. Versatile, Gravenberch can also be fielded in a defensive role.
The « Rekordmeister » is also on the trail of Senegalese Liverpool striker Sadio Mané. An agreement in principle exists, according to the press, but the two clubs continue to discuss the transfer fee. The Bavarians also hope to keep their center forward Robert Lewandowski, who has vigorously expressed his desire to leave for Barcelona.
