Mathys Tel confirms Rennes departure ahead of move to Bayern Munich

Rennes forward Mathys Tel has posted a farewell message on his Instagram account tonight ahead of his departure for Bayern Munich, after the Bavarians’ fourth offer was accepted by the Breton side.

His €40m move – including bonuses – notably comes as the Bundesliga side were looking to wrap up a deal as quickly as possible while he was still a minor, so as to fend off potential Premier League suitors.

The player himself was won over by the prospect of a move across the Rhine, which will notably see him go straight into the first-team squad at Bayern and gain valuable playing time, as the German champions secure the services of one of his generation’s most promising talents.
