Bayern Munich move on.

New signings

Bayern have had a busy summer of rebuilding as they have brought in several new sigings. Miroslav Klose has come from Werder Bremen, Zé Roberto from Santos, Franck Ribéry from Marseille, Luca Toni from Fiorentina, Marcell Jansen from Borussia Mönchengladbach, Ernesto Sosas from Estudiantes La Plata, Hamit Altintop from Schalke 04 and Jan Schlaudraff from Aachen.

The eight new arrivals will join a squad that already contains outstanding players such as Oliver Kahn, Lúcio, Lukas Podolski and Bastian Schweinsteiger, as well as former Barça midfielder Mark van Bommel after he moved to the club last summer. vanbommmelbayern.jpg

Moving out

The change of personnel came about after the club had a relatively poor Bundesliga campaign last time out and missed out on the Champions League. Roy Makaay has left for Feyenoord, Owen Hargreaves has joined Manchester United, Claudio Pizarro has signed for Chelsea, Hasan Salihamidžić has moved to Juventus, Andreas Görlitz has been loaned to Karlsruhe and Scholl has retired.
