Moroccan star Noussair Mazraoui has completed his transfer to German football heavyweights Bayern Munich from Dutch champions Ajax Amsterdam.
The lanky right-back has joined the Bavarians on a free transfer as his contract with Ajax was set to expire at the end of June this year and he has signed a four-year deal with his new club.
Bayern issued the following statement on their official website.
“FC Bayern have completed the signing of Noussair Mazraoui,” a club statement read.
“The 24-year-old moves to Munich on a free transfer from Ajax ahead of the new season and has signed a contract with the German record champions until 2026.
Mazraoui spent four years at Ajax and he helped the Amsterdam-based giants clinch four Eredivisie titles, two Dutch Cup titles and one Johan Cruyff Shield.
“Straight from the first discussions with FC Bayern, I had a good feeling and I’m excited about joining one of the biggest clubs in Europe,” the former Morocco under-23 international said.
“FC Bayern have just become German champions for the 10th year in a row and will be among the contenders to win the Champions League again next season.
“I’ve chosen this club because I can win the biggest titles here.”
He has played 12 times for Morocco’s senior national team and scored twice in the process.
