Bayern Boss Blames Two Clubs For Transfer Madness

Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has blamed two big European clubs for the huge amount of money being spent on players in the transfer window.

In the last two years, the world-record transfer fee has been broken twice, with Manchester United buying Juventus star Paul Pogba for a then record fee of €105 million in 2016.

Just last season, Neymar blew Pogba's fee out of of the water as the Brazilian left Barca to join Paris Saint-Germain for a world-record fee of €222 million.

The Bayern chairman has pinned the blame on Manchester City and PSG for inflating the transfer market.

“He [Guardiola] said they originally planned to buy a few more players but decided against it because they no longer want to be part of the madness,” Rummenigge told Merkur.

“I was a bit surprised to hear this at first, but then I thought it would indeed be wonderful if this statement were to be true until the English window closes.

“City, PSG – they’ve always been the global inflaters. Not Real [Madrid], who have spent next to nothing in the past years, which is proof you don’t have to join the madness to win the Champions League.

“That’s also our path. It’s our goal to again lift the Champions League trophy, rather sooner than later.”
