Benjamin Henrichs: Tipped to join Bayern

Monaco have confirmed that they have completed the signing of reported Chelsea and Man Utd target Benjamin Henrichs.

The 21-year-old right-back will join the Ligue 1 side in a deal worth a reported €20million (£18m) with €5m more in add-ons.

Henrichs told Monaco’s website: “I am very proud to be involved with AS Monaco, a European top club for many years. I will do everything to adapt quickly and help the team win many victories. I cannot wait to work with the staff and my new teammates.”

The defender left with best wishes from the German side’s sporting director Rudi Voller.

“Benny has kicked the ball under the Bayer cross since childhood and celebrated great success,” he said. “We wish him all the best in his new life abroad.”

It was claimed by German outlet Kicker in May, via The Sun, that Chelsea were ready to exploit a transfer loophole and strike a deal to bring the 21-year-old to Stamford Bridge.

He was also reportedly watched multiple times by Manchester rivals City and United, while there was apparent interest in his homeland from Bayern Munich.
