While Bayern are able to win against the Bundesliga, they had been eliminated in Europe from Liverpool from the round of 16 after a laboured performance, defeated 3-1 at the Allianz Arena in the second leg earlier this month. For the very first time in eight decades, the Bavarians didn’t reach the quarter finals.
“We’re currently rejuvenating our team,” Bayern president Uli Hoeness said in a PR event on Tuesday evening. “It’s FC Bayern’s most important investment programme ever.”
Coach Niko Kovac said a week that Bayern cannot compete with elite clubs at the transport market, however could have to invest heavily on struggle at Europe once again.
Citing Liverpool’s transport deficit of €140 million into Bayern’s of just under €30m since October 2015, Kovac said Bundesliga clubs unable to entice the world’s greatest players must find other answers, but still be prepared to invest.
He said:”The basic issue is: Do you want to play in that [transfer] match or not and then [we should ] calculate on additional teams running away from us”
Benjamin Pavard has already agreed to participate Bayern Munich.
Adhering to a quiet transfer summer without any major signings, and only free agent Leon Goretzka coming, Bayern must rebuild at the end of the season with veteran wingers Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery one of those set to leave.
Having already agreed to sign 2018 World Cup winner Benjamin Pavard out of Stuttgart, reports in France have linked Lille attacker Nicolas Pepe, 23, with a €80m move while Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale has once again has already been cited.
