Carlo Ancelotti says Bayern Munich will not sign another attacker despite the departure of Mario Gotze to Borussia Dortmund and Arjen Robben’s continued injury woes.
“We are well covered in those positions,” the 57-year-old told ESPN FC ahead of the club’s summer tour to the United States.
“Even with Robben picking up a little injury, he’ll be ready for the start of the season, so all positions are really well covered. We don’t need another player, we are enough and we are competitive.”
Ancelotti praised Bayern for “being quick and smart” in tying up deals for Germany defender Mats Hummels from Dortmund and Portuguese Euro 2016 winner Renato Sanches (Benfica) well ahead of the new season.
The Italian revealed that he was very much involved in the decision-making process.
“I spoke to the club,” Ancelotti said. “I think to improve the team, it was important to have good central defenders and to try to get a midfielder to improve the competitiveness of the squad in midfield.
