“Bayern is a big club. I think you have to win big titles here,” Gravenberch told German daily ‘Bild’ after landing at Munich airport on Saturday. “That’s also what I expect. I’m happy to be here in Munich.”

“When the offer came from Bayern, I didn’t have to think about it for long. Bayern are one of the biggest clubs around; players from all over the world want to play for this club. I’m coming to Munich to win lots of titles – and Bayern are used to winning lots of titles. Anything is possible with this club, including winning the Champions League. The togetherness in this team is very strong, which I like,” added the player at his presentation with Bayern.

Oliver Kahn, Bayern Munich CEO said: “Ryan Gravenberch is a young, highly interesting player who lots of Europe’s top clubs would’ve liked to have signed. He’s chosen Bayern because he can develop at the highest level here. Players with his qualities are important for Bayern’s future path.”
