Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge says he is delighted with the club’s summer transfer business. The Bavarians faced a summer of transition with both Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben leaving the club and it was always going to be difficult to replace two legends.
Bayern missed out on Leroy Sane, who remains at Manchester City for now, but Philippe Coutinho was snapped up on loan from Barcelona with a view to a permanent move.
The experienced Ivan Perisic also arrived from Inter Milan, while big money was spent on Lucas Hernandez and Benjamin Pavard.

All in all, Rummenigge is happy and believes all the new players will turn out to be huge hits. “We can be very satisfied with our transfer business and new signings,” he told the club’s website. “Philippe Coutinho obviously stands out, he’s world-class calibre and you can see that clearly.
He makes the difference and he’s found the perfect partner in Robert Lewandowski. We can expect a lot from those two in the future. “Ivan Perisic has also fully lived up to expectations, as have the two French World Cup winners we signed.
I like Benjamin Pavard a lot because he’s a really good player and a modest person. Lucas Hernández was the most expensive signing in Bayern’s history. “I think the best is still to come from him. We mustn’t forget that he’s just come back from an injury lay-off of around five months.
“Then there are Michael Cuisance and Fiete Arp, who are both promising talents. In the future, we want to fill places 17-20 in the squad with youngsters who have a chance of playing fairly regularly.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
