Bayern München CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has hailed Manuel Neuer and Robert Lewandowski as the club's most important transfers in the last 10 years.


Neuer was signed from Schalke 04 for €30 million in 2011 while Lewandowski arrived on a free transfer from Borussia Dortmund in 2014.

And according to Rummenigge, none of the club's other signings in the last 10 years have made as big an impact as Neuer and Lewandowski.

"Both were absolute key players in winning the treble," Rummenigge said in an interview with Sport Bild.

"They are FC Bayern's most important transfers in the last 10 years, and they were both inexpensive considering their merits and class," he added.

Neuer, 34, has been in goal 392 times for Bayern. Lewandowski has made 294 appearances for the Bavarians, scoring 251 times.
