’s CEO has spoken about the possibility of signing a central defender to replace David Alaba who probably will sign a contract with Real Madrid to join them in the summer.

Bayern Munich don’t have a good defensive record so far this season but Rummenigge insists on signing Upamecano is not going to happen in this transfer window.

He said on Bild Live,

“We will of course deal with it, not only with this player, but in principle,”

Rummenigge said,

“on the positions where we want to do and have to do something.”

"In the time of Corona, the money situation is also an important factor,”

Rummenigge added.

“Jerome is playing an important role again. The coach is happy with him,”

he said.

“Accordingly, you will have to ask him this question yourself if you speak to him.”

He also spoke about the situation of Leroy Sane who has scored 4 goals and five assists in 15 Bundesliga appearances so far this season.

“He has a five-year contract,"

he said. 

"That would be nonsense. We need this type of player. Of course he will stay with Bayern. And I am convinced: He will be a success here.”
