Bayern München were the only Bundesliga team that didn't spend a single cent on new signings during the past transfer window.
And while Bayern didn't spend any money on new signings, the Bavarians made a total of €88,5 million by selling Arturo Vidal (FC Barcelona), Douglas Costa (Juventus), Sebastian Rudy (Schalke 94) and Juan Bernat (Paris Saint-Germain).
Therefore, Bayern now feel ready to spend big bucks on a new signing if needed according to the club's CEO, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.
"We sold Douglas Costa, Sebastian Rudy and Juan Bernat and put good money in the cash register. We have the financial resources to make a big transfer. If we see the need for that, it is possible. That maks us all look at the future with calmness and optimism," Rummenigge told Kicker.
At the moment, though, Rummenigge underlines he is very pleased with Bayern's squad.
"We have a top squad. In Stuttgart, we had Javi Martinez, Corentin Tolisso and James on the bench. We have another philosophy compared to our colleagues at the other top clubs. We have a great team. Just buying to make the public happy does not help. Our team have our full confidence," he said.
Bayern München will face Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday at 15.30 (UTC+2) after winning their first two Bundesliga games of the season.
