FC Bayern sign Laimer
FC Bayern Munich have announced that Laimer has signed a contract until 30 June 2027. He's coming to us as a new, old DFB-Pokal winner – and together we will hopefully celebrate many more big victories and titles here at FC Bayern," said Jan-Christian Dreesen, FC Bayern chairman, about the new signing from Leipzig.
Konrad Laimer himself is looking forward to his new role in the Bavarian capital: "It's a dream come true for me. FC Bayern is one of the biggest clubs in the world. I will give everything for the club and the fans. FC Bayern always have the highest goals – just like me: I'm in the right place here. I'm only 100 percent, and I'll bring that to every training session from day one. I can't wait."
