After rumors surfaced last week, the Bayern Munich Frauen closed the deal and have signed one of Germany’s most dynamic players in SC Freiburg striker Klara Bühl per a release from FCBayern.com. Bühl, a Germany international, is expected to make an immediate impact at Säbener Strasse.

Just 19-years-old, Bühl was called up to Germany’s World Cup squad last summer and has been an absolute force since being promoted. Bühl has 7 international goals in 11 appearances, including a last minute winner against England in a friendly last September.

The youngster, who debuted at 15 years old for SC Freiburg, is eager to begin her new journey with Bayern Munich:

My anticipation is just huge. The change of club brings two exciting challenges for me: firstly, moving out of my parents’ house and secondly, I’m particularly looking forward to the team that has great quality and a lot of individual class.

Bühl is familiar with many of her teammates already and is anticipating a soft landing transition to Munich:

It was definitely the overall package that was decisive here, which is simply outstanding at Bayern. The conditions on campus are excellent, as well as the quality of the team, but of course the city with all its beautiful corners. In addition, I already know many faces from the national team and from my time in Freiburg, which can help with the settling-in period.

Frauen coach Jens Scheuer could not be happier to add such a talent to his squad:

Klara is an incredible win for our team. Klara is an exceptional talent, has an insane move to the goal, is two-footed and can shoot equally strong on the right and left. She has incredible potential, has a very good pace and is very strong especially at the start. But not only because of her playful class, but also because of her personality, she is a great asset to us. She is carefree, open, always friendly and personable. All of this distinguishes Klara Bühl on and off the field. I am extremely pleased that Klara has chosen us in spite of numerous other offers and I personally am very pleased that I can help Klara continue to develop.

Bühl tallied 9 goals this season per Flashscore.com and has 22 total goals in 69 games overall in her career for SC Freiburg.
