(Football news) The 17 year old teenager Mathys Tel will sign a five-year contract with the defending German champions Bayern Munich after they agreed a transfer fee with Rennes. Bayern Munich have reached an agreement with Rennes to sign striker Mathys Tel. After several days of negotiations and three rejected offers for the 17-year-old, Rennes have finally agreed to let him leave for Bayern Munich. Tel is now expected to undergo a medical at Munich imminently and will join the Bavarian giants on their pre-season training camp in the United States at the beginning of next week.
Talks were dragging on for several weeks, however, the two teams came to an agreement on Saturday when the Bundesliga champions agreed to pay under €30 million, including bonuses, to Rennes. Rennes will also receive a significant percentage of the next transfer fee should Bayern sell him in the future. After his medical at Bayern, Tel will now sign a five-year contract with the club and he will get a significant pay rise. Tel only broke into the Rennes senior team last season and went on to play 10 times for the Ligue 1 side over the Ligue 1 season
When he made his Ligue 1 debut in August, he broke Eduardo Camavinga's record as the youngest ever to play for Rennes ever. Tel still has two years left on his contract with the French side as Bayern have already signed Sadio Mane from Liverpool, former Juventus centre-back Matthijs de Ligt and Ajax duo of Ryan Gravenberch and Noussair Mazraoui this season. The Bavarian giants will now face RB Leipzig in the German Super Cup next weekend before opening their Bundesliga title defence against the Europa League champions Eintracht Frankfurt on August 5
“I have a vision that he’ll one day score 40 goals a season,” Nagelsmann said during the Bundesliga champions’ pre-season tour of the United States. “But if he scores 10 goals this season, we’ll be very happy.” The clubs have not yet officially announced the transfer, which media reports suggest could be worth up to €28.5 million (RM129.5 million) after add-ons. We’re looking for young players that we can develop into world-class players, and he could be one of those.”
