FC Bayern Munich have signed Olympique Lyonnais midfielder Corentin Tolisso. The 22-year-old France international has put pen to paper on a five-year deal with the German record champions.

Following a medical in Munich and the contract signing, the 1.81m central midfielder, who scored 14 times for Lyon last season, said: “I had a wonderful time at Lyon, and I’m very thankful for that. Now I’m really pleased to be at one of the best clubs in Europe. I have great aims for my time at FC Bayern. Today is a great day for me.”

FC Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said: “We’re really pleased we’ve been able to sign such a young and interesting player ahead of stiff competition from abroad. Corentin Tolisso was Carlo Ancelotti’s wish for our midfield.”
