Pizarro signs Bayern deal

Bayern Munich have announced the signing of former player Claudio Pizarro on a free transfer from Werder Bremen.

Pizarro, 33, spent a six-year spell at Bayern from 2001 to 2007, scoring 71 goals for the club before joining Chelsea and now returns following the expiry of his Werder contract.

The Peruvian is the all-time top foreign goalscorer in Bundesliga history with 160 goals in 333 games in the division.

"We are pleased to have been able to sign Claudio Pizarro, an internationally experienced and very dangerous striker," Bayern's director of sport Christian Nerlinger told the club's official website.

The striker put pen to paper in Madrid on Friday night, having attended the Copa del Rey final in the city. He is now expected to replace Ivica Olic in the role as reserve for star forward Mario Gomez.

Pizarro becomes Bayern's fourth new signing this summer, following Xherdan Shaqiri from Basel, Tom Starke from Hoffenheim and Dante from Borussia Monchengladbach.
