Sarpreet Singh Set to sign for Bayern Munich: Rising Kiwi star Sarpreet Singh hot on the heels of an impressive under 20’s World cup campaign is reportedly set to sign with Bayern Munich. A transfer that what would be one of the most stunning transfers in New Zealand football history and for an NRI.
German newspaper Bild is reporting that Singh is already in Munich ahead of formally signing, with Bayern wanting to keep his arrival a secret.
The report suggests that Singh would be signed to initially play for their reserve team, Bayern Munich II, who are set to play in the third division of German football next season.
However, it is also noted that the 20-year-old has been signed with an eye to him eventually becoming a member of their first team.
Such a move would be a shock, as while Singh is one of New Zealand’s brightest footballing talents, linking up with a squad like Bayern – Singh is likely being viewed as a like-for-like replacement for 19-year-old South Korean midfielder Jeong Woo-yeong, who recently transferred to Freiburg after making just one first team appearance.
