Bayern could spend 100m on a transfer

30 March 2015, 15:00

Berlin - Bayern Munich's finance director has said they could one day flex their spending power by becoming Germany's first club to pay 100 million euros (US$108.5m) for a future transfer.

"Yes, we could pay 100 million euros for a player," Bayern's Jan-Christian Dreesen told magazine Kicker.

"I want to avoid saying it could never happen, because I don't like then having to correct myself at some point."

Real Madrid are currently the world's highest spending club after signing Welsh winger Gareth Bale from Tottenham Hotspur for a reported record fee of 100 million euros in 2013.

The transfer bettered their own record from 2009 when they paid Manchester United 94.4m euros for Portugal superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.

Bayern set Germany's transfer record when they signed Spain international Javi Martinez from Atletico Bilbao for 39.9 million euros in 2012.

A year later they paid Borussia Dortmund 37 million for World Cup-winner Mario Goezte.

Dressen says reigning Bundesliga champions Bayern have signed every player they wanted recently and have met all of head coach Pep Guardiola's signing requests in his 18 months in charge.

"It's important to get the input from the trainer as to which players would fit in here," said Dreesen.

Bayern have signed goalkeeper Jose Manuel Reina, defenders Juan Bernat and Medhi Benatia, plus midfielder Thiago and striker Robert Lewandowski since Guardiola took charge in July 2013.
