Bayern Munich has finalized a short-term loan agreement to bring Granada forward Bryan Zaragoza to the Bundesliga.
While the German champions Bayern Munich initially announced in December that the 22-year-old Bryan Zaragoza would join them on a five-year contract starting in the summer of 2024, injuries to key players have led Bayern to make an early move in the transfer market.
Zaragoza will immediately join Thomas Tuchel’s squad on loan until the end of the season.
Bayern sporting director Christoph Freund told the club’s website: “In football you always have to be flexible and so we’ve reacted to the current situation.
“An agreement like this involves three parties and we’re happy that Bryan Zaragoza is joining us earlier than agreed.
“Bryan sees his future at FC Bayern – that future is beginning now. We’re very pleased that he’ll strengthen our squad already for the second half of the season.”
Zaragoza, instrumental in Granada’s promotion to LaLiga last season, is set to bolster Bayern Munich’s squad as they continue to compete in a closely contested title race, currently trailing Bayer Leverkusen by two points.
Zaragoza said: “I’m moving to FC Bayern to grow at one of the biggest clubs in the world.
“I’m looking forward to what’s coming. We’re aiming high.”
