The Bayern Munich sporting director Matthias Sammer has confirmed that the club do not plan to sell any players during the January transfer window. There have been rumours that a couple of fringe players will be allowed to move on, but Sammer has confirmed that it is not the case.

Bayern Munich have had an extraordinary first half of the season in which they have dominated the domestic football. They are currently top of the Bundesliga table with the massive nine point advantage over the second placed Bayern Leverkusen, which has led to many believe that the title is already in the pockets of Bayern Munich.

The club spent the vast sum of money on several players during the summer in order to overcome the disappointment of yet another trophyless season. Bayern Munich had just lost the league title for the second consecutive season, while also suffering heartbreak in the final of the Champions League. The club has also lost just one match in the domestic campaign so far this season, which has led to many believe that they do not need any significant additions during the January transfer window.

However, fringe players like Rafinha have been linked with a move. "We have our team for the second half of the season ready, and players like Rafinha and Tymo are part of the squad we count on. Mitchell Weiser is the only one where we could consider a transfer if all the conditions are right.

Obviously, only on a temporary basis, though. He's still a youth player and a loan move could benefit him," said the sporting director of the club, who has said that the 18-year-old Mitchell Weiser could be allowed to join another club on a loan deal in order to help him get experience after not making his debut for the Bavarians so far.
