Bayern’s Dante joins Wolfsburg




Bayern Munich have confirmed Dante is set to leave the club and join Bundesliga rivals Wolfsburg.

There was speculation last week that the centre-back could depart after he missed a club photoshoot, only for his agent to deny the claims.

However, his situation has changed over the weekend, with Bayern confirming his departure in the coming days and CEO Karl-Heinz Rummennigge citing Dante’s desire for first team football as the reason for his exit.

Rummenigge said: “Dante wanted to have the chance to play on a regular basis. We would like to thank him. Bayern and Dante had a very successful time together with many titles. We wish him all the best for his future.”

Dante joined Bayern from Borussia Monchengldbach in 2012 and won the treble under former coach Jupp Heynckes in his first season at the club, before going on to win a further two Bundesliga titles in 2014 and 2015.
