Posted on | February 9, 2012 | No Comments

Bayern have announced the signing of talented winger Xherdan Shaqiri from Basel. The Switzerland international will join Bayern next summer as the transfer window is closed.

The transfer sum is not specified but probably the deal is around €10 millions. Shaqiri will sign a four years deal with the German giants and will have to compete with Arjen Robben and Frank Ribery for a starting place as the talented midfielder can play on both sides of the field.

The 20 years old International made his debut at Basel in 2009 and since then he became a key player. Shaqiri has already 17 caps and 4 goals for his national squad.

Shaqiri comes at Bayern as a substitute for Robben or Ribery and as a long term replacement for them but many specialists are seeing the youngster in the first team from the beginning. And this could be possible as Robben gets injured often and his form has decreased. There are a few contestants that suggest that Bayern are playing better without him as he is also a selfish player.

However he will play from the beginning or after a few games Shaqiri deal looks like a very good deal for Bayern.
