Despite the departure of Robert Lewandowski to Barcelona, Bayern Munich CEO Oliver Kahn has ruled out signing another striker.
In recent weeks, the Bundesliga winners have been connected with moves for Cristiano Ronaldo and Harry Kane, however the club has denied such claims.
Lewandowski scored 50 goals in all competitions last season, but he made it plain that he wanted a new challenge in Spain and agreed to join Barcelona in mid-July.
Kahn stated following Bayern’s 5-3 DFL-Supercup triumph over RB Leipzig that there was “no debate” about adding another number nine.
“That was strong,” he told BILD of his performance. “You could see how many chances we had moving forward, how many various formations we had, how unpredictable we can be, how many brilliant footballers we have, and how much speed we can bring into the game with so many incredibly fast guys.
“We still have choices with the present team. [Joshua] Zirkzee, [Eric] Choupo-Moting, and the youthful Mathys Tel, who is training exceptionally well at the moment, are all present. There would also be opportunities for us.”
Five different players scored for Julian Nagelsmann’s side against Leipzig, including new signing Sadio Mane, and sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic was pleased with the variety.
“You could see how dangerous we are, how many swift and deadly players we have,” he told BILD. “That’s the plan.
“Of course, it is a distinct style of play. I believe we can spread the goals across many shoulders if the boys do what we want.”
While Salihamidzic would not rule out the possibility of a new striker joining the Allianz Arena, he did suggest that the club’s incomings may be concluded for this transfer window, saying, “The transfer market runs until August 31, but typically we have completed our plans by then.”
