Bayern Munich have signed
Switzerland forward Xherdan Shaqiri from FC Basel on a four-year
contract commencing this summer to boost their front-line, the
club said on Thursday.
"We are delighted to have signed one of Europe's most
sought-after talents with Xherdan Shaqiri," said sports director
Christian Nerlinger in a statement.
The pint-sized 20-year-old, who will officially join from
July 1, signed a deal until 2016.
"Xherdan will strengthen our team from next season with his
football intelligence and dribbling", said Bayern coach Jupp
"I have been watching him for some time and I am convinced
he can become an important player for the club."
Bayern take on Shairi's Basel in their Champions League
round of 16 later this month.
