Former Stoke flop Choupo-Moting set for unbelievable Bayern Munich transfer as Lewandowski back up after leaving PSG

STOKE flop Eric Choupo-Moting is on the brink of a stunning switch to Bayern Munich, according to reports.

The German Champions League winners want the striker as back-up for their star man Robert Lewandowski, who hit an astonishing 59 goals last term.

Choupo-Moting was PSG's super sub in their journey to the Champions League final last season.

He is a free agent now as his PSG contract has finished and is set to signtwo-year deal with the Bavarians.

But he struggled to get a game at the Potters.

The Cameron international – who was born in Hamburg in Germany – spent one season at Stoke in 2017/18.

City started the season under the management of Mark Hughes.

But he was sacked as Paul Lambert came in during a disastrous season for the Midlands club after several years of avoiding relegation battles under previous boss Tony Pulis.

Scot Lambert could not stop them going down and left that summer.

Stoke have been struggling in the Championship for the last two seasons.

Choupo-Moting scored five goals in 26 Prem starts that term, having been brought in on big wages on a free transfer from Schalke.

The striker was the hero for PSG in the Champions League quarter-final against Atalanta, as the sub scored and helped overturn what looked to be a shock exit for the French giants.

And that sort of display as impressed Munich who need cover for Lewandowski.

He struggled for starts at PSG with the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Neymar, Edinson Cavani and Angel di Maria blocking his path to the first team.

But he is ready to return to his roots in Germany even though he will once again struggle to get a starting spot.

Respected Italian sports journalist Nicolo Schira tweeted: "Done deal! Eric Maxim #ChoupoMoting to #BayernMúnich as a free-agent. The striker will sign 2-year contract. #transfers"

The 31-year-old joined PSG in August 2018 and made just 13 Ligue Un starts in two years, scoring six goals.

He has previously played for Hamburg, Nuremberg and Mainz.
