July 24, 2014

MUNICH (AP) — Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola says he is happy with what he’s got and the only new signing could be a backup goalkeeper.

Bayern has signed striker Robert Lewandowski from Borussia Dortmund and defender Juan Bernat from Valencia, while letting go midfielder Toni Kroos to Real Madrid and striker Mario Mandzukic to Atletico Madrid.

Guardiola says he is “very happy with the players.” But other club officials have not ruled out more signings.

Guardiola says he is “very pleased” for the six Bayern players who won the World Cup title with Germany, adding, “they are more pleased with their careers, for their future.”

Guardiola won the German double in his first season with Bayern but lost in the Champions League semifinals against Real Madrid.
