Helsingborg IF starlet Alex Timossi Andersson has officially signed for Bayern Munich.
The 16-year-old is set to join on July 1, 2019, as per the German side’s official website, as he’s been allowed to continue with Di Röe in order to continue his progress in Sweden.
Bayern’s sporting director, Hasan Salihamidzic, portrayed his enthusiasm owing to the fact they successfully managed to sign the young talent, who had reportedly trained with Manchester United earlier this year.
He stated: “Alex Timossi Andersson is a highly talented player. We are convinced that he will go his way to Bayern. Until he comes to us, he will continue to gather his playing practice at his regular club Helsingborg IF and thus develop further in his usual environment.”
The Swede made his senior debut for the club in the Swedish Cup defeat to Brommapojkarna back in February. Soon after his breakthrough, he had a week-long trial with the Old Trafford outfit.
The youngster has found the back of the net six times in four appearances for the Under-15’s, and furthermore, twice in seven games for the Under-16s set up. He is expected to bring out his true potential at the German club.
