Kingsley Coman, Niklas Sule and Sebastian Rudy have been signed by the club, and their former manager does not believe they will spend much more

Bayern Munich will not need to spend heavily into the transfer market ahead of next season, according to former coach Ottmar Hitzfeld.

The Bundesliga champions will be bolstered for the 2017-18 campaign having already agreed moves for Hoffenheim duo Niklas Sule and Sebastian Rudy as well as securing a permanent move for Kingsley Coman at the end of his loan from Juventus.

Bayern are believed to be interested in adding a striker to their ranks, but Hitzfeld does not think the club will sign a player who can rival Robert Lewandowski.

Furthermore, the 68-year-old says experienced wingers Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery, 33 and 34 respectively, do not need replacing as they are still capable of making the difference at the highest level.

"I do not believe that a major change will take place at Bayern," Hitzfeld told Sky.

"In attack they have a superstar in Lewandowski.

"Robben and Ribery are getting older but are still at the absolute top level.

"If you buy world-class attacking players you only get someone who is going to make a fuss."

There were reports of discontent at the Allianz Arena after Carlo Ancelotti's side went five games without a win in all competitions, suffering elimination from the Champions League and DFB-Pokal.

Chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge backed Ancelotti and a 6-0 victory at Wolfsburg on Saturday ended that run and secured a fifth straight Bundesliga title for the Bavarians, alleviating much of the pressure that had mounted.
