Money for transfer offensive? FC Bayern stops 100 million plan!

Säbener Straße

Bayern are planning a major transfer offensive for the coming summer. But this has consequences for another project.

FC Bayern’s sporting crisis in the current season also has an impact on the record champions‘ long-term plans.

„Of course, our primary goal is to achieve sporting success and of course we have to make certain financial resources available for this,“ said President Herber Hainer, who is also Chairman of the Supervisory Board, at the presentation of Max Eberl last week.

Hainer was hinting at a transfer offensive by Bayern next summer. According to Sport BILD, an important infrastructure project at the record champions has been put on hold for the time being in order to provide the financial means for this.

Bayern had actually planned to remodel the team wing at Säbener Straße. Work was due to begin by the end of 2024. Surveying work has already taken place.

However, at the supervisory board meeting, at which Eberl’s appointment as the new sports director was also decided, it was decided that the funds earmarked for the new building should not be committed for the time being.

Hoeneß and Rummenigge rethink

The difficult season, which threatens to turn into a title-less season, has apparently led to a rethink among the supervisory board members around Uli Hoeneß and Karl-Heinz Rummenigge. The squad is to be extensively reorganised.

As previously reported, at least five players are at risk of being sold, including Alphonso Davies, Serge Gnabry, Leon Goretzka and Joshua Kimmich. The future of defenders Matthijs de Ligt and Dayot Upamecano in Munich is also uncertain. According to Sky, all of these professionals are on FC Bayern’s cut list.

The income generated by the sale of these players is to be invested in new signings. And the postponement of the rebuilding measures at Säbener Straße will free up further funds. The transfer offensive can therefore begin.
