The next 48 hours are set to be frantic for various clubs as they look to strengthen the squad before the end of the transfer window. Bayern Munich is one of the few clubs that will be relaxed during this period since they have completed the majority of business early in the summer.

Despite losing Robert Lewandowski to Barcelona, Bayern has enjoyed one of their best summer transfer windows in recent history. They have managed to strengthen key positions with some of the best players in the world. There has been a good mix of youth and experience in the five deals Die Roten concluded this summer.

Apart from finding the right players, Bayern was also very quick to complete transfers. All of the five new signings were at the club before the start of the season. Four of the five signings were part of the pre-season tour, which gave them enough time to integrate themselves into the new group of players.

Die Roten’s work in the transfer market has been largely praised by pundits and fans. While talking to RMC (via iMiaSanMia) this week, Coman had a lot of praise for Bayern officials for building a squad that can compete on all fronts.

"“We have to do much better than last season. The club has done everything to make sure we have the best possible team. The people in charge have done a very good job and it’s up to us to do the work on the pitch.”"

The good work in the transfer market has been one of the key reasons behind Bayern’s solid start to the season. Sadio Mane has hit the ground running by scoring goals as a striker, filling the void left by Lewandowski. Other new arrivals have also played their part in the good start to the season.

Coman had to wait for his opportunity in the Bundesliga since he was serving suspension. The French international returned to starting XI against Bochum on matchday three and delivered a solid performance. The competition in the attacking positions is set to get the best out of all forwards.

Die Roten got all of their first-choice targets in the current transfer window. They only faced disappointment in their pursuit of signing Konrad Laimer from RB Leipzig. Bayern had three bids rejected for Laimer. The Austrian midfielder is likely to arrive next summer as a free agent.
