Rummenigge: Transfer activity starts now

FC Bayern München chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge reveals the German champions have already decided who they want to sign and will waste no time entering the transfer market.

The Bavarian giants claimed their fifth consecutive Bundesliga title this season but were unable to match their Champions League ambitions after being knocked out by Real Madrid in the quarter-finals.

Having won the German top-flight by a staggering 15 points, Bayern have been able to shift their focus to the future long before many other clubs and Rummenigge claims they have already decided who they are going to purchase in the off-season.

"We've already discussed the transfer policy with Carlo and the board and decided on targets. Next season we'll have a team that's more than capable of challenging for titles again," he said.

"We have personnel decisions to make. The transfer activity starts now. Sule has come on really well in the last six months and has also been called up to the Germany squad. He's a player who'll make a positive contribution for us in the future.

"I think it's been a good season. We won the league by 15 points. That's proof that we've worked well over the whole season. Winning the league isn't something you do easily, [It is] excessive to say it hasn't been a good season."
