Bayern set for quiet summer, says Guardiola

07 March 2014, 18:10

Berlin - As Bayern Munich close in on another Bundesliga title, coach Pep Guardiola admitted on Friday that there are unlikely to be many changes to his squad ahead of next season.

Guardiola was taken by surprise when asked about the club's plans for the summer as he prepared for Saturday's trip to play Wolfsburg.

"Next season? It's still far away. I think the base of the squad will remain more or less the same. There will be very, very few new faces," he admitted.

"That is more a question for Matthias Sammer," he added, referring to the club's sporting director.

Guardiola said he had not as yet submitted any transfer wish list to Sammer or chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and refused to comment on speculation linking the European champions with the likes of Chelsea's Brazilian defender David Luiz and Barcelona's Martin Montoya.

Bayern, who come into the weekend 20 points clear of nearest rivals Borussia Dortmund at the top of the table, have already confirmed two new signings for next season.

Poland striker Robert Lewandowski will join from Dortmund, while 23-year-old midfielder Sebastian Rode is on his way from Eintracht Frankfurt.
