By August 17, 2022Sports games

Bayern Munich defender Tanguy Nianzou has joined Spanish La Liga outfit Sevilla on a five-year contract, the two clubs announced on Wednesday. Financial details of the move were not disclosed, but local media reported that Sevilla agreed to pay 16 million euros ($16.27 million) for the 20-year-old Frenchman.

The transfer includes an option for the German champions to bring Nianzou back to Munich. “We signed Tanguy Nianzou two years ago because we believe in his great potential. Nothing has changed in that regard,” Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic told the club’s website https:/ /fcbayern.com/en/news/2022/08/tanguy-nianzou-to-move-to-sevilla.

“However, we currently have a very good and flexible defensive formation. It was the express wish of the player to have more playing time. We wanted to give him the chance to have more playing time at this stage of his career and that’s why we agreed a transfer with Sevilla… Sevilla are getting a great and very talented youngster.”

Nianzou’s professional career started at his hometown club Paris St Germain in 2019, when he played out a 3-1 win over Montpellier aged just 17. He joined Bayern in June 2020, making 28 appearances in all competitions and scoring one goal.

The French defender is Sevilla’s fourth transfer window signing after Marcao, Alex Telles and Isco. ($1 = 0.9836 euros)
