Bayern Munich, the holder of the German Football League, and Sevilla, the Spanish first division club, announced today, Wednesday, the transfer of defender Tangay Nyanzo from the first to the second in a five-year contract.
Financial details of the deal were not disclosed, but local media reported that Sevilla had agreed to pay 16 million euros ($16.27 million) for the 20-year-old Frenchman.
The transfer includes an option that enables the German champions to return Nyanzu to his ranks.
“We signed a contract with Tangayi Nyanzu two years ago because we believe in his great potential,” Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic told the club’s website. “Nothing has changed in this regard, however, we currently have a very good and flexible defensive lineup. The player’s express desire was to have more. From time to play, we wanted to give him the opportunity to have more time to play at this point in his career and that’s why we agreed a transfer deal with Sevilla… Sevilla brought in a fantastic and very talented player.”
Nianzo’s professional career began in Paris Saint-Germain, which marked its beginning in 2019, when he played at the age of only 17 in Saint-Germain’s 3-1 victory over Montpellier.
He joined Bayern Munich in June 2020, and played 28 matches in all competitions, scoring one goal.
The French defender is the fourth deal for Sevilla in the transfer window, after Marcao, Alex Telles and Isco.
