This is a pretty smart move.

With the rumors that Pepe Reina has already packed his bags for a return trip to Napoli, it would make sense that Bayern Munich were already targeting another goalkeeper to replace him. They wasted absolutely no time getting their man.

The two clubs declined to announce the transfer fee, but BILD peculates that it us around €3 million. Ulreich's deal will keep him in Munich until 2018.

The signing of Ulreich gives FC Bayern an immediate number two behind Manuel Neuer and someone that can be pushed by the veteran Tom Starke.
