After nearly a month of negotiations, Bayern Munich finally tied down Swedish sensation Jonah Kusi-Asare. At 1.96 meters or 6’ 5”, he is taller than his compatriot Zlatan Ibrahimović. If the initial reports from 4 January are to be believed, then it means that Kusi-Asare has signed a contract until June 2027, with an option to extend it until 2029, for which Bayern paid 60 million Swedish krona or €4.5 million (plus two million add-ons):
This is the second deadline day signing that the Bavarians have completed in the winter transfer window, with the other being Spanish Granada CF winger Bryan Zaragoza. Zaragoza was not supposed to move to the Rekordmeister until July but injuries to Kingsley Coman and Serge Gnabry necessitated the need for an extra winger. Bayern then negotiated with Granada for an immediate move, to which they agreed to, and paid them a compensation fee to make it happen.
