first_imgThe president of the board of directors of Bayern Munich, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, has announced that he will hold talks with German club stars such as Thomas Müller, Manuel Neuer or Jérôme Boateng to review their contracts. “We have some players who still have a year and a half of contract. With them we are going to start talks,” Rummenigge said in statements to the German press.“These players made great merits in Bayern, no matter if it’s David Alaba, Thiago, Jerome Boateng, Javi Martínez, Thomas Müller or Manuel Neuer. Logically we will carry out the conversations with the greatest sensitivity before making decisions”he assured. Big investments of the Bavarian club in the transfer market are expected next summer. Bayern is negotiating with players that make up the German team such as Leroy Sané (Manchester City) or Kai Havertz (Bayer Leverkusen) and it is estimated that the club will exceed 100 million euros in signings.“Bayern is not interested in breaking a new record, but there is no transfer market only for Bayern, but for football in general. And from experience we know that this transfer market only goes in one direction in terms of prices and pace “up. But what worries me more than the issue of transfers is that of wages. It’s dizzying,” said the 64-year-old former player.Therefore, Rummenigge recommended investing more in young players. “We have to bring players like Alphonso Davies to Bayern. Not all young players can become starters, but the one who manages gives a lot of satisfaction,” he said. Davies arrived from Vancouver at age 18 and a year later he was already a starter.last_img read more
