11 Jul Chelsea exodus continues as Fofana joins Berlin
The 20-year-old only made three Premier League appearances for Chelsea after they signed him for a reported fee of around €12 million ($13.1m) from Norwegian team Molde FK in January.
“David’s speed and his flexible offensive qualities are highly interesting for us,” Union sporting director Oliver Ruhnert said. “We want another goal-scoring player who will give our attacking game additional impetus.”
Union Berlin, who were promoted to the Bundesliga for the first time in 2019, will play Champions League football for the first time next season.
They will play their European games at Olympiastadion, a venue traditionally used by city rival Hertha Berlin. Hertha were relegated from the Bundesliga last season.
