Bayindir is one of four summer transfers who made the trip along with Rasmus Hojlund, Andre Onana and Sergio Reguilon who will all be hoping to make their first appearance in the Champions League for United.

The Turkish keeper is second choice to Onana so is unlikely to start unless the Cameroon international picks up an injury or manager Erik Ten Hag makes changes.

Bayindir became the first Turkish player to join United from he moved from Fenerbahce.

The keeper has yet to make his debut for the Reds but is match fit and hoping to break through soon.

Bayindir has yet to play in the Champions League group stage but did feature in the playoff round for Fenerbahce.

United and Bayern have played 11 times in total since meeting first in the 1998/99 season.
