Bayern have cash to spend

Bayern Munich
Bayern Munich chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge says funds are in place at the club for a mega transfer if they wanted one.

Bayern Munich chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge says funds are in place at the club for a mega transfer if they wanted one.

The German giants are reluctant to involve themselves in bidding wars for the world’s top players but that does not mean they have not got the wherewithal to do so if they wanted.

The summer sales sale of Arturo Vidal, Sebastian Rudy and Juan Bernat leaves Bayern with a sizeable amount of cash, helped by the 40 million euros paid by Juventus to make Douglas Costa’s transfer permanent.

That leaves Rummenigga calm about transfers and says if they needed to splash out they could.

‘We’ve earned good money [this summer] and also have the financial means if we see the necessity for such a transfer,’ he said.

‘That’s why we are relaxed when looking to the future.’
