Transfers: agreement in principle between Rennes and Bayern Munich for Mathys Tel

This will remain the most important transfer for a 17-year-old player in France. And one of the biggest in Europe. There was indeed the departure of Willem Geubbels (born in 2001), in 2018, moving from Lyon to Monaco for 25 million euros, bonus included, when he was not yet a professional. But the departure of Mathys Tel to Bayern Munich will reach new heights.

A place in the workforce this season

The negotiations were long (Munich will have needed to make four offers) but Rennes and Bayern reached an agreement this Saturday afternoon for the transfer of the striker for an amount slightly less than 30 million euros, bonus included . The Germans had made Rennais an important objective of their transfer window. And the amount they are about to spend is a strong sign of this. Bavarians are convinced of the immediate contribution of Mathys Tel. Despite his age – he was born in 2005 – Hasan Salihamidzic, the club’s sporting director, has always offered the player a concrete project. With a place in Jurgen Nagelsmann’s squad this season.

The departure of Robert Lewandowski at Barça necessarily leaves more room for Mathys Tel, capable of evolving in all attacking positions. With the departure of the Pole, the German champions made the same effort to sign the recent European U17 champion with the France team. With success. In Munich, Mathys Tel will sign a 5-year contract.
