In some not-exactly-shocking news, Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told French publication Le Figaro that his club would not engage in any potential bidding for Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe.

While transfers rumors constantly swirl around the 21-year-old phenom, the French scoring machine will carry an outlandish cost — one that the Bavarians will not even think about paying.

“I love Mbappe and the way he plays, but we will never get him to come to Bayern,” said Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge (as captured by Diario AS). “Either way, he’s fine where he is. Nasser Al Khelaifi is a good friend of mine and I’m not going to bother him with this.”

Wherever Mbappe ends up, he will be consulting with his parents, whose opinion is still extremely impactful to the player.

Rummenigge, though, has been impressed with the multitude of French players that Bayern Munich has rostered over the years.

“They have always adapted well to our club Rummenigge told Le Figaro. “They are good footballers and good guys.”
