Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic said: "I'm glad that we were able to sign Eric. Offensively, he gives us the depth that we will need.

"Eric has gained international experience at Paris Saint-Germain, he knows the Bundesliga and joins us on a free transfer. It all fits together very well."

Choupo-Moting joined PSG from stoke city on a free transfer on August 31 2018. He was made only 20 appearances for PSG in all competitions last season and scored six goals.
