Bayern Munich aren’t wasting time with the coronavirus postponing the Frauen Bundesliga and the UEFA Women’s Champions League. On Friday, the Bavarians announced their latest signing: SGS Essen’s Marina Hegering. She joins on a free transfer.

The soon-to-be 30 year old defender comes to Munich having made 141 Bundesliga appearances for Essen, Bayer Leverkusen, and Duisburg in her career. Her accomplishments include two DFB Frauen Pokals and a UEFA Women’s Cup (Champions League predecessor) while a member of Duisburg.

Hegering has clear goals set out for her move to Munich:

I would like take the team to the balcony of the Munich Town Hall - obviously! I myself am just really looking forward to everything that comes. The potential to develop myself further here - as an athlete and as a person - is very high, so I look forward to this new step in my life.

Over the last two seasons, Hegering played her way into contention and made Germany’s 2019 World Cup squad.

With Hegering signed, is Klara Bühl next?

However, as big as Bayern signing an experienced international defender is, a report out of kicker is even bigger news: Bayern are on the verge of signing Klara Bühl from Freiburg.

The 19 year old has worked her way up through all of Freiburg’s youth teams since 2013 and knocking in goals at the various youth teams for Germany at the same time. The 19 year old was called up to Germany’s World Cup squad last summer and already has 7 international goals in 11 appearances, including a last minute winner against England in a friendly.

Bühl still has a year left on her current contract, so Bayern would be paying a transfer fee for her. Still, when the best young talent in Germany wants to play for your team, you try to make it happen. This would be a huge signing for the Bavarians.
