Young Bayern striker Joshua Zirkzee will get an opportunity to accrue significant playing time for relegation-threatened calico side FC Parma. The 19-year-old Dutchman has been loaned out by German giants FC Bayern München for the duration of the season.
Official confirmation of the deal remained a mere formality after Zirkzee confided to Germany's Bild Zeitung everything was settled yesterday. Independent sources confirm that the much-discussed purchase option is indeed €15 million. The deal initially stalled when Bayern attempted to make the purchase clause obligatory.
