Bayern Munich fans around the world were just minding their own business when boom, the club just snagged Granada attacker Bryan Zaragoza just like that. The 22-year-old signed a five-year deal until 2029; he will join the Bavarians next summer. So, how did all of this happen? Bryan and his dad (with a lawyer) apparently flew out to Munich and got it done.

Bryan Zaragoza signed his contract on Monday and came to Munich by private jet with his father and a lawyer. Bayern will pay Granada 12 million € fixed plus 4 million € bonuses, depending on titles and individual goals.

A base fee of €12 million for a highly rated and talented player is a steal. The 22-year-old Spaniard is the second signing of the Christoph Freund era after Nestory Irankunda out of Adelaide United. He is also the shortest player in the club’s history at 1.64m or 5’5”; for context, Hansi Flick’s hand-picked golden son Tiago Dantas stood at 1.70m or 5’7” which is the same as club legend Philipp Lahm and Ballon d’Or favorite Lionel Messi.
