Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge
is not in any rush to replace German star Jerome Boateng
if he is transferred to Paris St. Germain, downplaying suggestions that Bayern will sign
22-year-old French World Cup champion Benjamin Pavard
from VfB Stuttgart.
Rummenigge went on to list options Bayern already has at center back, including 18-year-old American
"We have [Mats] Hummels
, we have [Niklas] Suele
, we have [Javi] Martinez,
who can play in the central defense, also [David] Alaba
another two youth players, Lukas Mai
and Chris Richards," Rummenigge told Sport Bild. "That’s a lot of quality."
Richards joined Bayern last month on loan from FC Dallas and
impressed on its summer tour
in the International Champions League.
