Sat 08 May 2021 | 9:09

Bayern Munich are not planning to splash the cash in the summer transfer window due to the Covid-influenced market, despite being linked with some major moves.

According to

Bayern Munich


Herbert Hainer

, the Bavarian side will ‘not make any expensive transfer’ in the summer, amid speculations of them eyeing the



Achraf Hakimi


They have been linked with a move for the Morocco international, who has been talismanic for the Nerazzurri this season.

However, the club president denied a swoop for the Morocco man or any other expensive transfer.


We will add to the squad, but not make any expensive transfers,"

Hainer told the 

Bayern Insider


"We have an incredibly strong, young team with enormous potential. So I'm not worried. [I see] no need for further expensive transfers.

"[We want to] have the best squad. The reality is that you've also got to finance that too. It's no secret that Covid-19 hit hard.

"That affects our budget in revenue shortfalls. The transfer market will not be an easy task."

Hakimi’s agent

Alejandro Camano

admitted that although not surprising that Bayern may be keen on signing with his client, he has not been contacted.

"I don't know where those rumours come from,"

he stated.

"But it wouldn't surprise me if FC Bayern were interested in Achraf. No one from FC Bayern has contacted me.

"Achraf is very happy at Inter. He doesn't think about anything else... But who wouldn't want to play for FC Bayern?"

Bayern’s hint on not wanting to spend much cash is both a blessing and a curse for the opponents, as it means less competition. However, it also indicates that they will not allow any unwanted exits.
