Guardiola: Bayern won't sign many players

Guardiola: Bayern won't sign many players
The Bavarians have already secured the future of Robert Lewandowski and are set to add Sebastian Rode, but the Spaniard is not expecting much transfer activity

Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola says that he is only planning minor changes to his team this summer.

The German champions are set to sign Robert Lewandowski on a free transfer from Borussia Dortmund at the season's end and are likely to add Eintracht Frankfurt midfielder Sebastian Rode.

However, the former Barcelona coach says the core of his XI will remain the same at the end of the summer transfer window.

"I think the basis of the team will be more or less the same," he told reporters.

"There will be just a few additions."

Bayern face Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga this weekend and Guardiola says the vast majority of his players are fit to take on Dieter Hecking's men, whom he is refusing to underestimate, despite their 6-2 loss to Hoffenheim last week.

"All the players are fit whenever the Champions League is coming," he joked. "It's the case in other big clubs. I don't know why.

"Wolfsburg are one of the big teams in the league. They are a dangerous opponent, despite their 6-2 defeat last week.

"They have some very good players. It won't be easy. It will be a big challenge, and we can take another step towards defending the title." ---------------
