Norwich City announce signing of rumored Bayern Munich target Milot Rashica

It was thought that Milot Rashica would stay in Germany...those thoughts were wrong.

Former Werder Bremen forward and rumored Bayern Munich target Milot Rashica has signed with Norwich City per a release from the club.

Rashica had previous been linked to Bayern Munich, Eintracht Frankfurt, Bayer Leverkusen, RB Leipzig, Sevilla, Lazio, AS Roma, and Aston Villa, but is now on his way to Norwich City.

New Bayern Munich manager Julian Nagelsmann had reportedly tried to bring Rashica to RB Leipzig last season, which further fueled speculation that the Bavarians would get in on the bidding for the 24-year-old Kosovo international:

Rashica was considered to be an affordable, low risk/high-reward option for Bayern Munich because his transfer fee was not expected to be significant. Per Transfermarkt, Norwich City paid Werder Bremen €11 million for Rashica, a number that in most years, would be considered an absolute steal for a high-ceiling player like Rashica.

If the forward had not scuffled during the 2020/2021 season for an abysmal Werder Bremen side, he surely would have been valued at a number at least twice the €11 million he was reportedly sold for.
