FC Bayern have given academy product Tarek Buchmann a professional contract through to 2026. The 18-year-old defender joined the club from Augsburg in 2019 at U16 level and has since come through all the youth teams at Bayern. He made 18 competitive appearances (one goal) for the U19s last season, including five in the UEFA Youth League. Buchmann made his international debut for Germany’s U18s in March and has a total of 13 youth caps.
Jan-Christian Dreesen, FC Bayern CEO: “We’re delighted to bring a promising young player from our FC Bayern Campus in Tarek Buchmann closer to our first team. He’s developed very well in a sporting sense in recent years and is now getting the chance to take the next step with us.”
Tarek Buchmann: “It’s a big honour for me to sign by first professional contract at FC Bayern. I know what a privilege it is to play for this club. The club has always supported and promoted me in a top way. I feel great trust. At the same time, I see it as my first duty to continue working hard on myself. I want to take my chance in every training session and game in order to have a successful journey together with FC Bayern.”
