CLAUDIO PIZARRO'S move to Bayern Munich has finally been confirmed by Werder Bremen.

The Peruvian star was all but confirmed by several people including Giovane Elber before his club announced the signing officially through sports director Klaus Allofs.

"It was a race right up to the wire with several Spanish clubs," confirmed Allofs.

The 22-year-old was watched closely by both Barcelona and Real Madrid, but it has now been confirmed that Bayern have snapped up the South American for a fee of around £5 million.

Allofs was reluctant to see his Peruvian star leave the Weserstadion but added lightheartedly: "On one side it is good that the fans will be able to see him next season but unfortunately it will be in a rival shirt.

"I am not concerned as our defenders know all aboout Claudio's game and should be able to stop him scoring against us."
