German giants Bayern Munich have confirmed the signing of Schalke 04 goalkeeper Alexander Nubel.
Nubel, who signs for Munich on a free transfer, has penned a five-year deal with the Bundesliga side and will officially join the club on July 1.
The Germany international had just six months left on on his current deal with Schalke, but the club failed to offer him a new contract.
The 23-year-old is expected to join as back up for Manuel Neuer before eventually replacing him later on.
Bayern took to its official twitter handle to announce Nubel’s signing.
