Bayern Munich formally announced the signing of former Borussia Mönchengladbach midfielder Michaël Cuisance this morning. Per a release from the club, the Bavarians have signed Cuisance to a five-year contract that will run through June 20, 2024.
Bayern Munich sporting director Hasan “Brazzo” Salihamidzic likes the potential of Cuisance:
In his first professional season in Gladbach, Michaël Cuisance was already Gladbach’s ‘player of the season.’ He has a lot of technical skills and great potential. Michaël should develop with us. We are convinced that we will have a lot of fun with him.
Cuisance, who just celebrated his 20th birthday on Friday and spent crucial time developing at the Youth Academy of AS Nancy, acknowledged the magnitude of the move and said he was “proud” to be wearing the jersey of Die Roten:
I know this is a big step for me. But I feel ready and I’m very proud to be wearing the jersey of FC Bayern in the future. For me personally, it’s great that some French players already play for Bayern. This will certainly help me with the integration into the team.
Cuisance is expected to begin training with Bayern this week.
