FC Bayern can still harbour hopes in the Champions League, but the season has been a disappointment at national level in particular. Plans are apparently already being made in the background to strike back with all their might. Major investments in the squad are said to be planned.

FC Bayern was eliminated early in the DFB Cup, and with a 13-point deficit to unbeaten Leverkusen, the Munich team can also write off the championship. There are still faint hopes of winning the Champions League, but the German record champions are certainly not among the favourites for the trophy. The bosses can therefore justifiably expect a disappointing season.

Those responsible are therefore already planning for the new season. According to kicker, the clear objective is for Bayern to strike back with all their might.

According to the report, investments on a grand scale are planned in order to set the first signs. But also sales of prominent professionals.

Bayern supervisory board wants to keep a close eye on expenditure

However, the supervisory board will „pay meticulous attention“ to ensure that no money is spent unreasonably. This has happened in the recent past. The transfer of Lucas Hernandez is cited as an example. The French defender was signed from Atletico Madrid in 2019 for a fixed transfer fee of 80 million euros. The main man responsible for the deal was the then sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic.

According to the report, the current managers are „still in the process of correcting the economic actions“ of the previous management. In addition to Salihamidzic, who was later promoted to sporting director, this certainly also refers to former CEO Oliver Kahn.

This correction will therefore also be reflected in possible contract extensions. The first player to get a taste of Bayern’s course is Alphonso Davies. He is probably demanding an annual salary of 20 million euros, but the bosses around sporting director Max Eberl are „only“ offering 12 to 13 million euros. Like Davies, Joshua Kimmich and Leroy Sané’s contracts expire in the summer of 2025 and negotiations are underway. The two internationals could also soon be confronted with the new austerity programme for salaries.
