Rummenigge: No more arrivals at Bayern Munich

The club official has brought the transfer season to a close for the Bavarians, declaring the side is already well-stocked ahead of the new campaign.

Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has insisted that the club is already strong enough to challenge on all fronts and ruled out the possibility of making any more signings in the summer transfer window.

The Bavarians have already brought in the likes of Claudio Pizarro, Mario Mandzukic and Dante to reinforce the squad ahead of the new campaign, a situation which the official believes stands the Bundesliga runner-up in good stead.

"We have two players for every position - this is our squad for next season," Rummenigge affirmed to Sports Bild. "We have accomplished all our transfers before the August 31 deadline."

Rummenigge then quashed rumors regarding the potential departure of winger Arjen Robben, saying: "The debate over his transfer status is unnecessary. He will be staying with us 100 percent."

The Dutch attacker endured a difficult season as Bayern Munich and missed a crucial penalty in the Champions League final against former club Chelsea in stoppage time.
