Bayern sign Guerreiro on free transfer from Dortmund

Bochum, June 24 (BNA): Bayern Munich announced, on Friday, that it had signed Portuguese left-back Rafael Guerrero on a free transfer from rivals Borussia Dortmund.

Guerrero, whose contract with Dortmund expires on June 30, has signed a three-year contract with Bayern Munich. Reuters reported that the 29-year-old would reunite with Bayern Munich coach Thomas Tuchel, who brought him to Dortmund from Lorient in 2016.

“When the call came from Bayern, I quickly made up my mind,” Guerrero said. “It’s an honor to be able to play for this great club, and I also appreciate Thomas Tuchel very much from our time together at Dortmund.”

Guerrero spent seven years at Dortmund, making over 200 appearances for the club, scoring 40 goals. He won 64 caps for Portugal and won the European Championship in 2016.

Although primarily a defender, Guerreiro can also play as a left winger and in midfield. He scored four goals and provided 12 assists in the Bundesliga last season as Bayern Munich beat Dortmund on goal difference to win their 11th consecutive league title.

Defender Mats Hummels was the last player to move from Dortmund to Bayern in 2016, and he returned to the Ruhr Valley club three years later.

And Guerrero is Bayern’s second deal in the off-season, after joining midfielder Konrad Leimer from Leipzig, also on a free transfer.
