Bayern Munich have agreed to sign Miroslav Klose from Werder Bremen this summer.

Klose had a year left on his Bremen contract and had already confirmed he would be joining Bayern in 2008.

However, Bayern president Franz Beckenbauer, along with Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, had both been keen for Klose to join next season.

Bremen general manager Klaus Allofs said: “Bayern fulfilled our expectations and we approved the transfer under those conditions.”

Reports in Germany claim that Bayern will pay €15m for the leading scorer at the 2006 World Cup.
