CEO Jan-Christian Dreesen from the German record champions Bayern Munich called for more careful communication after Uli Hoeneß’s offensive transfer statements.
“In general, I think we would do well not to comment further on the topics in which we are moving beyond what is currently known,” said the Bayern boss on Monday during the presentation of the Raphael Guerreiro and Konrad Laimer additions .
“Our interest in Harry Kane is well known,” emphasized Dreesen, “Uli said a few things about it, that’s right. But we’re better off with our coach Thomas Tuchel, who said: The grass doesn’t grow faster if you do it draws.”
During a visit to the training camp at Tegernsee, Hoeneß had spoken intensively about the efforts to attract the English national striker – at his club Tottenham Hotspur this caused irritation.
Accordingly, Dreesen did not want to announce any new water level reports in the case of Min-Jae Kim (SSC Naples). “He’s an exciting player, we’re interested in him. We want him to join us,” he said. A decision will be made in the next few days. The South Korean centre-back is expected to cost around €50m. Dreesen declined to comment on Kyle Walker (Manchester City), who is also said to be interested.
The CEO calmly recalled previous transfers from Bayern, which sometimes happened “at the last minute”. Sometimes patience pays off: “The most important thing is that the players are with us at the end of August.”
