Bayern Munich has no interest in letting the drama persist regarding its goalkeeper conundrum. In an official statement released by the club, chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has responded to all the vexatious comments which have been making headlines lately about incoming transfer Alexander Nübel.

The club does not have any sort of dissatisfaction about their new signing and everyone, including both the management and the head coach, have welcomed the 23 year old with open arms (FCBayern.com):

In recent weeks there have been a lot of reports about Alexander Nübel. On behalf of FC Bayern, I would like to clarify that all decision-makers at Bayern, including head coach Hansi Flick, are very happy that Alexander Nübel will be a Bayern player next season. He is one of the best young goalkeepers in Europe and an important player for the future of our team. We’re confident that Manuel Neuer, with his quality and experience, will make an important contribution to Nübel’s development.

In particular, probably alluding to hostile comments made by Christian Früchtl’s agent about Nübel’s move to Bayern, Rummenigge asserted that the club will not tolerate attacks on Nübel by agents:

In addition, we would like to put on record that FC Bayern does not tolerate derogatory comments from players’ agents about other Bayern players.

While things are often in uproar in Munich, the front office is trying to keep the storm at bay in all possible ways.
