Update: 4:30PM EST — Hannover 96 have a 400k buy clause
Per BILD, as captured by @iMiaSanMia, Hannover 96 will be able to keep Arrey-Mbi relatively easily if they are happy with his development:
Hannover’s option to buy for Arrey-Mbi is around €400k, regardless of whether they get promoted or not.
Update: 12:25PM EST — Arrey-Mbi is off to Hannover 96
In an announcement from Bayern Munich’s club website, defensive prospect Bright Arrey-Mbi will take that rumored loan to Hannover 96 through the end of the 2022/23 season.
“Bright has great potential, which is why we have given him a professional contract until 2025. For his further development he now needs games at a higher level than before. Hannover 96 is an ideal station for this. Bright will gain the desired experience in the second division,” sporting director Hasan “Brazzo” Salihamidžić said.
Hannover 96 will hold an option-to-buy Arrey-Mbi at the end of the loan.
“Word has already spread that Hannover 96 has become an interesting destination for young players. This season, too, a number of guys have already been given the opportunity to show themselves in the first team. I want to take the next steps in my development here and will offer myself in every training session to earn my chance,” Arrey-Mbi told the Hannover club website.
Bayern Munich defensive prospect Bright Arrey-Mbi has been in limbo since his loan with 1. FC Köln fell into a state of uncertainty.
With no plans on using Arrey-Mbi this season, Die Geißböcke sought to terminate the loan and send the youngster back to Bayern Munich. The problem is that the Bavarians also had no position for Arrey-Mbi this season and needed to find him another new home.
Now, Bayern Munich has just done that with Hannover 96 per Sport Bild’s Tobi Altschäffl:
Bayerns Abwehr-Talent Bright Arrey-Mbi, zuletzt an den 1. FC Köln verliehen, steht vor einem Wechsel zu Hannover 96. Noch sind jedoch Details zu klären.— Tobi Altschäffl (@altobelli13) August 30, 2022
Bayern defensive talent Bright Arrey-Mbi, who was last loaned out to 1. FC Köln, is about to move to Hannover 96. However, details have yet to be clarified.
According to Sport1’s Kerry Hau, Hannover 96 will have an option to buy Arrey-Mbi as part of the loan deal:
Bright Arrey-Mbi per Leihe für eine Saison zu Hannover 96, wie der Kollege @altobelli13 berichtet. Der Spieler absolviert heute den Medizincheck. 96 hat sich eine Kaufoption gesichert. #FCBayern @SPORT1— Kerry Hau (@kerry_hau) August 30, 2022

This seems like a good solution for the 19-year-old, who needs to be in an environment where he can showcase himself on a club’s first team.
