Pep Not Interested In Reus

Bayern Munich coach, Pep Guardiola, has insisted he is not interested in signing Borussia Dortmund star, Marco Reus, this summer.

The 25-year-old attacking midfielder was reportedly a transfer target of the Bavarians after club boss, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, publically discussed the player’s transfer details, but Guardiola has now ruled out any new signings.

“We don’t need any new players. “I’m very happy with the squad,” the Spaniard said ahead of the German Supercup against Dortmund on Wednesday.

“I haven’t talked about Marco Reus with (Bayern boss) Karl Heinz Rummenigge. We already have eight midfielders. Eight! That’s enough.”

Guardiola is keen to take revenge on Jurgen Klopp’s side after losing last year’s Supercup 4-2, but highlighted that he only has 'eight or nine' fully fit players.

“Last summer my players were fitter for the Supercup. This time I only have eight or nine players that are fully fit—no more,” he added.

“The world champions have trained well, but they need time. I'm happy that I have six world champions. After training today I will talk to the players then decide who can play and for how long.”

Bayern take on Dortmund in the German Supercup at 18:00 today.
