It is no secret that Bayern Munich have been behind signing Adelaide United's Nestory Irankunda, having eyed him even before the new board came in.
While a deal was very close at multiple points throughout the summer window, negotiations seemed to have stalled, with Adeliade United hoping for the player's transfer fee to rise.

A £3 million (€3.4 million) fixed transfer fee plus add-ons has been agreed verbally, which would make the signing the most expensive one in A-League history.
Director of Youth at FC Bayern Campus, Jochen Sauer has been eyeing the talent for months now, and in collaboration with his ex-colleague at RB Salzburg -- Christoph Freund, has most likely bought the talent to the Allianz Arena after all.
Irankunda is a pacy winger with a powerful shot reminiscent to that of Mathys Tel, and has become an A-League icon at the age of only 17.
The Tanzanian born winger has represented Australia at youth levels. Soon, it seems he'll be wearing the Bayern red.
