Franck Ribery, Arjen Robben, Mats Hummels, Rafinha, and James Rodriguez have left Bayern Munich. It is speculated that Jerome Boateng will also leave the club very soon. To date, Bayern has brought in Benjamin Pavard, Lucas Hernandez, and Jann-Fiete Arp, who will probably play for FCB II. Bayern’s CEO Uli Hoeneß promised us months ago a wild transfer window.
Former Bayern star, Stefan Effenberg expressed his concern over Bayern’s transfer inactivity in his latest interview with Sport1.
We have to wait and see what Bayern will do in the transfer market. They’ve already lost world-class players like Robben and Ribery. Now Hummels is also gone, and Boateng’s future is uncertain. In terms of sport, these are huge losses that Bayern have not been compensated for yet. But what I can certainly say, is that I’m sure that the next season will be even more interesting than the last one.
The latest rumor is that Niko Kovač wants Bayern to sign four more players this summer. The transfer window isn’t open yet, and there is plenty of time for Bayern to sign necessary reinforcements.
While Bayern is still working on more of their signings, the main competitor Borussia Dortmund has been pretty active. So far, they’ve signed Mats Hummels, Thorgan Hazard, Julian Brandt, and Nico Schulz, and it is now obvious that the title race will be as tough as ever.
