Bayern Munich will make no further signings this summer, according to their chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

The European champions have brought in some high-profile names already in recent months, with Mario Gotze, Thiago Alcantara and Jan Kirchhoff all arriving as new boss Pep Guardiola looks to continue the club's dominance in Germany. 

Despite missing out on Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski, Bayern's chairman is happy with the current squad and revealed they are not looking to bring in any other players before the start of the season. 

"Dortmund's comments were unmistakable, so we have to respect that also," Rummenigge explained to Kicker magazine, responding to questions about the Polish striker. 

"We now have the squad the way we want it. We signed Gotze because we believe he is the greatest talent of his year group in Germany and Europe. With Thiago, you could see that it was a good recommendation of the coach. He has characteristics that we've never had at Bayern Munich before.”

Bayern Munich stormed to the Bundesliga title last season as they won a staggering 29 games from 34, with only one defeat. 

Victory over Dortmund at Wembley also saw them lift the Champions League, before they completed a famous treble as they defeated Stuttgart to win the German Cup. 

With a host of top class players in their squad, Guardiola may however be entitled to let certain fringe players leave the squad, with Luiz Gustavo one of those being linked with a possible move away from the Allianz Arena.
