er war zwei Jahre bei Bayern München


Explanation:
to distinguish this from your other query (played for instead of played with), you could say

Er war/spielte zwei Jahre bei Bayern München


Explanation:
depending on the context of the sentence, I would rather use the simple past. 'bei' is mostly the preposition of choice when you're talking about football teams. In every-day German, we rather say 'war' than 'spielte'.
