Bayern to Sign Australia wonderkid Irankunda

Bayern Munich have secured a deal to sign one of Australia’s brightest footballing talents,  Adelaide United winger Nestory Irankunda, on a deal from the summer of 2024.

The 17-year-old has already become a regular in the A-League and secured his first call into the Australia squad in March, although he is yet to make his senior international debut.

He has scored nine goals in 39 senior appearances for Adelaide and a further 11 goals in seven games for Australia’s U17 side.

Bayern’s director of youth development Jochen Sauer said: "We've had Nestory on our radar for some time and we're pleased we've reached an agreement with him and Adelaide United on a move to Munich for next summer. 

"We'd like to thank the United management for the good talks. Nestory is an extremely quick winger, a strong dribbler and finisher with good drive towards goal. We're convinced by his potential and that he will take the next steps with us."
