Max Eberl believes that the Bayern Munich squad needs to evolve this summer as they look to recover from their failure to win the Bundesliga title.

After enduring their first season without a trophy in 12 years, Bayern Munich are facing a crunch summer transfer window. Those in charge at the club have set their sights on making key changes to the squad. Max Eberl does not believe that a complete overhaul is necessary, rather he wants the roster to undergo an evolution this summer.

“Bayern has now worked with this squad for a very, very long time,” Eberl said during his appearance at Die Zukunft des Fußballs event organized by the SZ newspaper. “Now we don't want to revolutionize, but rather evolve. We want to get things back on track.”

“I'm delighted that we've found a very, very exciting, very, very interesting coach. A great person who knows how dressing rooms at big clubs should work. We have to be successful, we have to play good soccer and then the rest is all smoke and mirrors.”

It has been reported in recent days that Bayern Munich are willing to sell as many as six key players this summer. Just how much truth there is to that rumor remains to be seen, but the Bavarians will certainly need to sell some players to make room for new signings.

Eberl has also identified improving the youth sector as an area Bayern Munich need to focus on in the coming months. The desire to improve the club’s youth team ranks has already been apparent with some of the recent decisions made by those in charge. Bayern also announced the signings of highly rated prospects Maurice Krattenmacher and Gibson Nana Adu earlier this week.
