Bayern Munich’s squad is complete for this season with the arrival of Brazillian Philippe Coutinho.

According to Goal.com, the Bavarians have no interest in signing Emre Can from Juve. In fact, they are not looking to sign anyone else.

The completion of the Coutinho deal is imminent.

Plus the acquisition of Michael Cuisance in recent days from Borussia Monchengladbach and Ivan Perisic from Inter. Will see Munich cal it good on their squad for now.

They secured two defensive stalwarts in Lucas Hernandez and Benjamin Pavard before the transfer window even opened.

There has been talk of Mario Mandzukic, and now Emre Can, both of Juventus heading to the Allianz Arena. They have been told they will not be key figures in Maurizio Sarri’s team this year.

While it would be football romantics dream come true for both players to return to clubs that gave them their big senior break ina top side.

If these players are to leave Juve it is apparently not going to by Bayern Munich who signs them.

Bayern president Uli Hoeness said when asked about further transfer activity this summer:

“Our squad is now complete and we are not looking to make any other changes.”

Reports suggested Can was looking for a path to Allianz Arena with Juve coach Maurizio Sarri doubting he will play a leading role in Turin this season.

Since the end of last season, Bayern has seen Franck Ribery, Arjen Robben, James Rodriguez, Mats Hummels, and Rafinha.

After dropping two pits in the opening game of the season, star striker Robert Lewandowski’s preseason comments of them lacking attacking options were proven to be accurate.

That was a side without Perisic, and obviously without Coutinho. It is hoped that they can provide some attacking impetus in the style of Robben and Ribery.
