FC Bayern have completed the signings of Niklas Süle (21) and Sebastian Rudy (26) from TSG 1899 Hoffenheim. The two Germany internationals will join the German record champions on 1 July 2017. Sebastian Rudy signed a three-year contract binding him to the club until 30 June 2020, whereas Süle put his name to a five-year contract until 30 June 2022.
FC Bayern München AG chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge commented: "We're very satisfied and delighted Niklas Süle and Sebastian Rudy are joining us. Signing two Germany internationals is an investment in FC Bayern's future. Sebastian Rudy joins us on a free transfer. In the case of Niklas Süle we have reached a fair and serious agreement with TSG Hoffenheim."
"It's an absolute dream for me to go to Munich. FC Bayern are one of the greatest clubs in the world," said Rudy. "In terms of it being a farewell I feel a little wistful too," declared Hoffenheim's home-grown talent Süle, but also pointed to the great chance of "maturing further with one of the best teams in the world."
