Dagný Brynjarsdóttir looks set to sign with Bayern Munich according to an Icelandic report. The news is consistent with what U.S. sources say as well. Bayern Munich had no comment when reached on Monday.
Last week Brynjarsdóttir announced that she would be signing in the Frauen-Bundesliga, but would not reveal which team. Iceland’s 4-3-3 reports that she’ll sign with Bayern, citing sources.
Brynjarsdóttir told The Equalizer’s Steve Bruno last month that her dream was to once again play in the UEFA Champions League. She previously played for Valur in the Champions League. Bayern is currently in second place in the Frauen-Bundesliga; the top two teams qualify for the Champions League.
“I played in the Champions League and I really liked that,” she said in December. “My dream is to one day play in the Champions League again and play in the final… I don’t really know who’s going to contact me after I’m done, so I guess I’ll just have to wait and see.”
Brynjarsdóttir, 23, has extensive experience with Iceland’s youth national teams and the senior team. She scored the lone goal in a 1-0 win over the Netherlands at EURO 2013, a victory that propelled Iceland into the quarterfinals.
