MUNICH (AP) - Bayern Munich has signed Spanish defender Juan Bernat from Valencia on a five-year contract.

Bayern sporting director Matthias Sammer said Monday that the 21-year-old Bernat is “a very good investment for the future” of the Bundesliga champion. Bayern didn’t disclose the transfer fee.

Bernat, a Spain under-21 international, joins fellow Spanish players Thiago Alcantara and Javier Martinez in coach Pep Guardiola’s squad.
