No information on a possible switch charge, however the transfer does replicate Bayern’s customary MO since Hasan Salihamidzic took over. The aim with Jensen shall be to have him develop within the U-19 and reserve groups, earlier than he hopefully takes the ultimate step into first-team soccer. Whether that occurs after a mortgage, or he makes the leap instantly the identical means Jamal Musiala did, stays to be seen.
Of course, all of that’s nonetheless a great distance away. Jensen wouldn’t be the primary Danish midfield talent to make an early transfer to Bayern — Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg made the transfer from Brondby IF as a young person. Pep Guardiola, who was the coach again then, did give Hojbjerg some probabilities within the first workforce, however competitors for minutes pressured him to maneuver to Southampton within the Premier League. Hojbjerg has since ended up at Tottenham Hotspur — a robust profession trajectory which proves that the Bayern scouts have been proper to see talent in him.
If this report seems to be true, then hopefully Bayern Munich are signing one other massive younger talent for the long run. With switch charges round Europe nonetheless (by some means) sky excessive regardless of the pandemic, discovering gems early is completely essential for the membership to stay frugal and aggressive.
We now have affirmation from Bild that the deal is ready to undergo this Friday. Jensen will signal a 3 yr contract (maintaining him right here till he turns 19) and his switch will price the membership 1.2m euros plus add-ons.
We’ll hold a lookout for the official announcement.
The switch isn’t official but, however Jonathan Asp Jensen turns 16 as we speak! Happy birthday. Sign the contract please.
