Back in the January transfer window, Chelsea were interested in Hoffeinham defender Niklas Sule.
However, the Germany international opted to sign a five-year deal with the German giants earlier this year and will join them ahead of the new season.
The 21-year-old says he rejected interest from Chelsea to join the Bundesliga champions, while adding that no Premier League club has the charm of Bayern Munich.
“Chelsea were interested, but it would have been too early for me to move to England,” Sule told German newspaper Bild.
“Bayern are among the top three clubs in the world, so I didn’t have to think about it for too long.
“It was simply the right move for me. I wanted to stay in the Bundesliga and prove myself in the best team.
“The fact is, no club from England could have the charm that the offer of the Bavarians had.”
Time will tell, Sule.
