Bayern Munich confirm deal with Ajax defender Mazraoui

Bayern Munich have confirmed the free transfer of Ajax defender Noussair Mazraoui.

The 24-year-old has agreed to a four-year contract with the club and will join when his contract with Johan Cruyff ArenA expires at the end of next month.

After graduating from Ajax’s youth academy, the Netherlands-born defender made over 100 appearances for the club, winning three Eredivisie titles and two Dutch Cups.

Speaking about his move to the German champions, Mazraoui said: “Straight from the first discussions with FC Bayern, I had a good feeling and I’m excited about joining one of the biggest clubs in Europe.

“FC Bayern have just become German champions for the 10th year in a row and will be among the contenders to win the Champions League again next season. I’ve chosen this club because I can win the biggest titles here.”

Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic added: “We’re pleased to make Noussair Mazraoui our first new signing of the summer.

“He had offers from all over Europe and chose us because we have a clear plan with him and want to achieve big things with him.

“Noussair is a player who presses forward a lot down the right side. We also really like his mentality – he’s fired up for this challenge at FC Bayern.”
