Bayern München board member Oliver Kahn says he isn't sure that the club will make big transfers this summer due to the financial implications caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

"At the moment there are very, very different things to deal with. I'm rather skeptical about whether the market will pick up at all," Kahn told Sky on Sunday evening and added:

"We look at everything at the moment, just as many other European clubs do. It's not apparent to me that the clubs want to make big transfers."

The Bayern boss was coy on speculation linking the German champions with Bayer Leverkusen's Kai Havertz and Manchester City's Leroy Sané.

"Of course Havertz is a top talent, a great player, but FC Bayern aren't interested in every good player. His current contract runs until 2022," Kahn said.

"Sané has an injury behind him and tries to catch up bit by bit. I think it's difficult today to talk about players, who have a valid contract."
