Hasan Salihamidžić in @SPORTBILD interview on when he had the idea to sign Mané: "It was in my garden. Marco Neppe & I sat together with Björn Bezemer & Daniel Delonga, their ROOF agency represents Serge Gnabry. It's no secret we were in talks because we want to extend with Serge
Salihamidžić: "That was when the name of Sadio Mané was mentioned for the first time, as he's also represented by Björn. During the talks I thought to myself: 'Something is possible!' - As Björn was leaving, I asked him how big the chances really are"

Pini Zahavi speaks with details about his latest meeting with Bayern: "I came to the meeting with my collaborator Humberto Paiva. Hasan Salihamidžić and Oliver Kahn were present on Bayern's side" [@altobelli13, @BILD]
Zahavi: "The meeting went as follows: We arranged to meet for lunch, it was just after 12 p.m. in Munich. The restaurant was as good as empty. In the first 45 minutes, the name Robert Lewandowski was not mentioned once."

Pini Zahavi speaking to @BILD: "For Robert Lewandowski, FC Bayern is history. Robert wants to leave FC Bayern after eight years in which he gave the club everything. Now, at almost 34, he has the opportunity to fulfill a lifetime dream and join the club he always dreamed of"
Zahavi: "Why is FC Bayern denying him this opportunity? For Robert, the matter is very clear: he wants to leave FC Bayern this summer. Nobody cares about money here, neither Robert nor me. He hasn't felt respected by the people in charge for months, that's the truth."

Manuel Neuer on which of his 10 league titles was his favourite: "It's always the first title. It was my second year at Bayern and we were under pressure. We finished second the year before under Jupp Heynckes, lost the Pokal final to Dortmund and CL final at home" [@SPORTBILD]
Neuer: "We played a great season and won the first treble in Bayern's history. It was an indescribable feeling when we secured the title in Frankfurt. I got goosebumps. My first time as German champion, I can still remember it today"

Oliver Kahn: "Bayern is not and will not become a development club. FC Bayern is still a big force. There are many players who are dying to play for us. A development club is forced to sell players every now and then. That's not us" [@WELTAMSONNTAG]
Kahn: "We want to keep our top players for as long as possible. That's why we extended with Kimmich, Goretzka, Coman and Müller this season. Jamal Musiala is also a cornerstone for the future"

Thomas Müller on why he decided to stay at Bayern: "It's a simple answer - because I have everything I enjoy about professional football here. I definitely know that I'm competing for titles here - domestically and internationally." [@kessler_philipp, @mano_bonke]
Müller: "We've won a lot of league titles over the past 10 to 15 years and have always played for the European title. Accordingly, the prerequisites from a sporting point of view are great and by no means boring"

Julian Nagelsmann on Lewandowski: "He's trained very well in the past few days and will start tomorrow. My opinion regarding Lewy is known, his contract situation is known. The rest is the club's business. You can ask the player or Hasan"
Nagelsmann on his first season: "I liked our first half of the season, although we didn't have a good preseason and had many youth players. Tactically, we played outstanding games. I didn't like the consistency in the second half of the season."

Florian Kohfeldt on Saturday's game: "We’re looking forward to a sold-out Volkswagen Arena and a very attractive opponent – the toughest challenge you can face in the Bundesliga. We definitely want to play a very open game and get the win, if possible" [VfL]
Kohfeldt: "We’ve noticed a couple of ways of creating chances against Bayern, but it’s clear they’re still incredibly dominant in attack. We therefore need to strike the right balance between defence and attack."

Bayern are starting to soften their stance regarding a possible Lewandowski sale this summer. The club's bosses & Lewandowski's teammates have noticed how annoyed the Pole has been in recent weeks. Many are wondering whether it makes sense to keep him against his will [@BILD]
In the dressing room and also within the leadership, there's the thought that a Lewandowski departure could also have positive sporting effects, despite his undoubted qualities, because Bayern's whole attacking game is currently based around Lewandowski [@BILD]

Lothar Matthäus: "I still don't want to imagine Robert Lewandowski wearing a different shirt, but that wouldn't surprise me too much. If Barcelona offer him the three years he wants and the clubs agree on a fee that satisfies FC Bayern, then I could understand all parties" [Sky]
Matthäus: "Xavi wants a striker as soon as possible. Bayern could possibly use a big transfer fee and in the end, Robert would fulfill his wish of playing in Spain and enjoy another nice life experience"

Julian Nagelsmann on the future of football: "It's always a bit hypothetical to predict exactly how football will change. Physically, the players have now reached a level where I don't think there's much more they can do" [@kessler_philipp, @mano_bonke, @tzmuenchen]
Nagelsmann: "However, I believe there's still potential for development in the cognitive area. The perception of passing spaces, the pre-orientation of in-game situations, the recognition of spaces, basically when it comes to the speed of execution. We can still work on that"

Julian Nagelsmann on Lewandowski: "We have to wait and see how the rib reacts. We won't take any risks. Nevertheless, it would of course be good if he gets game time tomorrow to stay in rhythm ahead of Wednesday. I assume he will be in the squad and can also play"
Nagelsmann: "Leon Goretzka has a bit of muscular problems in the hip. Otherwise he's been training really well for 2 weeks. I would like to play him tomorrow"

Omar Richards: "I'm now a Munich resident, I want to integrate as well as possible. To do that, I have to learn German. For me, it's also a question of respect for the country and the people here. It's not enough for me to just understand the coach and the team" [fcb]
Richards: "In my life, nothing was handed to me on a plate, I worked for everything. On the pitch, I used to be almost embarrassed when I lost the ball. I always wanted to win it back as quickly as possible. I also always want to win. I'll do anything for that."

Former 🇳🇱 striker Dirk Kuyt: "We have many talented players in Holland - Gravenberch is definitely one of them. He’s doing really well at Ajax. He had a couple of games where he wasn’t playing, but he’s coming back & is definitely one of the future stars of Dutch football [@goal]
Kuyt: "In Holland they speak a lot about him moving to Bayern Munich, which would be a great step for him, but also, we say that sometimes it’s better to stay a little longer and play a few more games here"

Hansi Flick on yesterday's game: "It was a very good game from two teams that wanted to play football. We played some great stuff for 60 minutes and could have gone 2-0 up through David Raum. After that, Netherlands looked more likely to score and put us under pressure" [dfb]
Flick: "But we put up a good fight. All in all, I’m happy, but I know that we need to produce that for the full 90 minutes. However, the intensity from the team was incredibly high, we played with real confidence and gave a good account of ourselves"

Oliver Kahn has decided to be more involved in transfers and contract talks from now, and wants to be closer to the team. The CEO has so far been more in the background during talks [@SPORTBILD]
The trigger for Kahn's decision was mainly the unclarified future of Lewandowski, Müller and Neuer. Kahn has made the contract talks with the three captains an absolute priority. He wants to renew with all three [@SPORTBILD]

Oliver Kahn to @tzmuenchen: "The annual income from the international TV contracts of the Bundesliga is currently less than €150m per year - the Premier League gets more than 2 billion in the same period. There's a landslide disparity" [@kessler_philipp, @mano_bonke]
Kahn: "The Bundesliga needs solutions to reduce this huge difference. We at FC Bayern are among the top 3 in the world in terms of sponsorship. We will continue to expand this position in the future"
