Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has played down talk of any further signings this summer and said there is no possibility that Arjen Robben will depart.

• Bayern want Javi Martinez

Bayern - looking to bounce back from a disappointing campaign in which they finished as runners-up in the league, cup and Champions League - have already strengthened this summer with Xherdan Shaqiri, Mario Mandzukic, Claudio Pizarro and Dante, and Rummenigge feels they are ready.

"We have two players for every position - this is our squad for next season," he told Sport Bild. "Unless Heynckes or [director Matthias] Sammer request an addition, we have accomplished all our transfers before the August 31 deadline."

That have been suggestions that Arjen Robben could depart despite the Netherlands winger having signed a new deal.

Robben had publicly spoken of his disillusionment at the club at one stage last season and, after missing vital penalties against Borussia Dortmund and Chelsea towards the end of the campaign, he faced boos from some Bayern fans.

Rummenigge, though, said: "The debate over his transfer status is unnecessary. He will be staying with us 100%."
