Bayern Munich have completed a stunner deadline day move for striker Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting on a free transfer
The club announced on Monday afternoon. Choupo-Moting, 31, was a free agent at the end of last season after his contract expired at Paris Saint-Germain.
According to ESPN, it was reported that the striker has signed a contract until June 2021 with the Bundesliga champions.
“It’s a great feeling coming back to the Bundesliga – and then to the biggest club in Germany,” he told the club’s website.
“Who wouldn’t want to play for FC Bayern? It’s an honour to play for this club. It’s always Bayern’s aspiration to win everything, and I’m hugely motivated to help them achieve those goals.”
The Cameroon international and former Stoke City’s player will be a backup choice to free scoring Robert Lewandowski at the European Champions’s side. Choupo-Moting became the eulogised hero for his former team, PSG after scoring the winning goal in their Champions League quarterfinal tie against Atalanta in August.
The 31 year old has experience in German football after spells with Hamburg, Nurnberg, Mainz and Schalke 04.
Meanwhile, Bayern also announced Douglas Costa has returned to the club on a season-long loan from Juventus.
