FC Bayern sign Raphaël Guerreiro
FC Bayern have completed the signing of Raphaël Guerreiro. The Portugal international moves to the German record champions on a free transfer after leaving Borussia Dortmund. The versatile 29-year-old, who normally occupies the left flank, has put pen to paper on a contract until 30 June 2026.
Watch the first interview with Bayern's new signing:
Jan-Christian Dreesen, FC Bayern CEO: “Raphaël Guerreiro has been among the best and most consistent players in the Bundesliga for years. He’s versatile and internationally experienced, and fits perfectly into our team as both a character and player. We’re very happy that we’ve been able to sign him and that he’ll be wearing the FC Bayern shirt in the future. The coach and we as management are in agreement that he will undoubtedly enhance our game.”
Raphaël Guerreiro: “When the call came from FC Bayern, I made my decision fast. It’s an honour for me to be able to play for this great club, and I also regard Thomas Tuchel highly from our time together at Dortmund. I’m a player who always wants the ball – it’s about controlling the game and I want to create chances. I’ll give my all so that we win as many titles as possible. That’s the philosophy of FC Bayern.”
Here are the first images of the new addition:
France-born Guerreiro joined the French football association’s national academy at the age of 11 and began his professional career at SM Caen in 2010.

Guerreiro won the DFB Cup twice with BVB (2017 and 2021) as well as the DFL-Supercup in 2019. To date he’s played 64 games (four goals) for the Portuguese national team since his debut in 2014, and started five out of seven matches on the way to winning the European Championship in 2016.
