Bayern München CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge doesn't want to rule out that Renato Sanches and Jerome Boateng could leave Allianz Arena before the German transfer window slams shut on September 2.

After coming on as a substitute towards the end of Bayern's 2-2 draw with Hertha on Friday, Renato Sanches openly declared that he wants to leave the Bavarians as he's frustrated with his lack of playing time.

When asked about the difficult situation with Sanches, who has been linked with Lille OSC, Rummenigge said that a solution must be found that is acceptable to all involved parties.

"I like him as a player. But we must find a solution that suits both him and the coach," Rummenigge told Sky.

Rummenigge then went on to comment on Jerome Boateng's situation at the club. The centre-back has slipped down the pecking order in Munich and may have to leave if he wants to play regularly.

"It won't be easy for him to get to play. Then he will not be satisfied. If he wants to leave the club, he has to say it," Rummenigge said and added that there are currently no offers on the table for the 30-year-old.
