Goalkeeper Daniel Peretz will join Bayern Munich after a 5 million Euro, five-year deal for his transfer from Israel's Maccabi Tel Aviv was agreed, according to a report published on Wednesday.
Peretz who is currently in Slovenia will attend Maccabi's match against Celje in the Conference League playoffs on Thursday before traveling to Munich, where he will undergo medical examinations and begin training with his new team.
Bayern Munich, the Budesliga titleholder has long searched for a fresh backup goalkeeper following Yann Sommer's departure to Inter Milan. Bayern has cast its gaze on the 23-year-old Peretz, who is regarded as a promising prospect and holds a German passport.
Transferring Peretz from an Israeli team to one of the greatest soccer empires is no less than incredible but not all that surprising if you consider his accomplishments thus far. He stood out playing for Maccabi Tel Aviv, where he amassed an impressive tally of 100 appearances for the perennial Israeli champions, showcasing his skills as he kept an astounding 43 clean sheets.
He was part of Israel's U-21 team during its historic run to the 2023 UEFA European Championship semi-finals. The Israeli goalie kept two clean sheets in four appearances during the tournament while maintaining an average rating of 7.3.
