For a team that has lost a number of their key players this summer, the Bavarian giants do not seem too invested in the summer market.

Bayern Munich boss Julian Nagelsmann chooses to stay calm over the club’s lack of transfer activity.

An urgent need to bring in new faces has arisen at the Allianz Arena, with long-serving and reliable players such as David Alaba, Jerome Boateng, and Javi Martinez no longer part of the Bayern squad.

Only a single transfer has been completed by the Bundesliga champions so far this summer in the shape of Dayot Upamecano.

The lack of transfer activity has been a source of concern for the fans, especially considering how quick and efficient their club usually are at reinforcing their squad.

“The financial conditions are the same as last week,” stated Nagelsmann after Bayern’s 3-2 defeat in Saturday’s pre-season friendly to Koln, via Goal.

“We always have the duty to control everything and see what works and what doesn’t work. 

“You have to react to the current circumstances, that’s quite normal. But it’s not like the players will be out for four months.

“We don’t have to panic. If we have a lot of injured players, it’s normal that we have to look. But if these injured players only have to rest for six weeks, we don’t need to rush.”
