Rummenigge: Bayern still open for business

Mourinho has ‘full respect’ for Southampton as Spurs prepare for action in the FA Cup R4

FC Bayern München chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge is adamant the club has not yet concluded their transfer business ahead of the new Bundesliga season.

Bayern have already landed two major signings in the form of Renato Sanchez from Benfica and Mats Hummels from arch-rivals Borussia Dortmund.

While there are no deals on the table at the moment, Rummenigge believes it would be foolish for them not to keep their eyes open for any other potential transfer targets.

“I would not shut the door on new players coming in, the window is open until August 31,” the 60-year-old said at the presentation of new Bayern head coach Carlo Ancelotti.

“Two years ago we had problems as [Javi] Martinez injured himself in the Super Cup so we had to look for new players.

“Nothing is planned, as for whether we will plan something big I don’t think it is good for us if we put our cards on the table here.

“We made some suggestions on the areas we could improve on, they were a central defender and a midfielder with the characteristics that Renato Sanches has and we are pleased that we got both.

“They are very good players, you could see that in the Euros. They are two players that will be very good for us.”
