Rummenigge warns of a „challenging transfer summer“ at FC Bayern

Karl-Heinz Rummenigge

Max Eberl has a lot to do in the coming months. Not only is the search for a coach at the top of his personal to-do list, but the squad reorganisation must and should also be driven forward. According to Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, FC Bayern is facing a very challenging summer of transfers.

Regardless of the sporting outcome of the current season, there will be no „business as usual“ at FC Bayern. The new change of coach alone makes it clear that the Munich club is facing a fresh start. At the same time, the current squad is also to be reorganised.

Supervisory board member Karl-Heinz Rummenigge makes no secret of the fact that the current squad is no longer properly structured: „We have players with little hunger – and this lack of hunger is noticeable on the pitch. Next year, I am convinced that this hunger will be greater,“ he emphasised in the Tomorrow Business & Style podcast.

Bayern pushes ahead with sporting reorganisation

According to kicker, at least five players are to be sold. Added to this are the departures of professionals such as Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Bouna Sarr, whose contracts are due to expire.

Rummenigge is already certain that the coming summer will be anything but easy for the Bayern bosses: „It’s no secret when I say that the summer transfer window will be challenging for Max Eberl, Christoph Freund and Jan Dreesen. But I am convinced that they will find solutions and can make a fresh start.“

From the 68-year-old’s point of view, FCB is in an excellent position to master these challenges: „We have people in charge who have the experience and quality to do it. In football, it always comes down to quality – quality on the pitch and also quality on the bench and a good fit between team and coach.“

Money for a transfer offensive should be available: The supervisory board, on which Rummenigge also sits, has just put the renovation of the training centre at Säbener Straße on hold for the time being. The original plan was to invest up to 100 million euros in the renovation by the end of the year at the latest. However, according to Sport BILD, the sporting crisis has made those responsible at the Isar rethink their plans.

„His role will be extremely important“

According to Rummenigge, new sporting director Max Eberl in particular will play a key role in the squad reorganisation. Accordingly, Eberl must „convince players to stay at FC Bayern and players to come to FC Bayern.“

Sky recently reported that Eberl, together with sporting director Christoph Freund, had drawn up a kind of wish list for the coming transfer period, which according to Sport BILD includes three to five names for each position.

For Rummenigge, Eberl plays a key role in the sporting reorganisation: „I think he has quality, a clear plan in his head and is an empathetic person. He also has the ability to convince at a high level. His role will be extremely important, also as a mediator between the coach and the team.“
