Mainz 05 have signed Jonathan Meier from Bayern München’s youth academy. The 19-year-old left-back has signed a three-year deal until 2022. The talented defender got his start in TSV 1860 München’s youth academy, and has been with Bayern München since 2012. Most recently, Meier was able to celebrate with the Bayern U23’s as they were promoted into the third division.
“Jonathan Meier was able to receive exceptional training during his time in the youth academies at both TSV 1860 München and Bayern München. He is a fast and dynamic player; the epitome of the modern left-back. As well, Jonathan is a good-natured young man with the ambition of developing himself at the top level—that fits perfectly to us,” said Mainz sporting director Rouven Schröder.
“Mainz 05 are a very good club to come to as a young player looking to get to the next level. They are a Bundesliga club that has had success in bringing in young players and developing them step-by-step. I’m excited to come to Mainz and will work hard in order to reach my goal of playing in the Bundesliga,” said Jonathan Meier.
