(SOUNDBITE) (German) BAYERN MUNICH CEO, KARL-HEINZ RUMMENIGGE, SAYING [ABOUT TRANSFER WINDOW]: "Today is July 8.
I know that patience is not one of the major virtues of the public or sometimes of the fans.
But I would like to remind them that the transfer market is open until September 2.
We - especially Hasan (Salihamidzic, sporting director for FC Bayern Munich) - are working in a concentrated way on the transfer market.
But I would also like to remind people that until now there has not been the one big transfer which would act as a domino effect.
We are waiting for that." 2.

HERNANDEZ AND RUMMENIGGE ARRIVING ON PITCH, HERNANDEZ POSING FOR CAMERAS STORY: Bayern Munich are waiting for the first major European transfer in order to spring into action and boost their squad ahead of the new season, club CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said on Monday (July 8).
Bayern have signed Frenchmen Benjamin Pavard and Lucas Hernandez but fans want more new players so they can challenge Europe's top clubs in the Champions League which the German side last won in 2013.
Rummenigge told reporters and fans at the official presentation of defender Hernandez that they would have to be patient.
Bayern won the German league and Cup double last season but did not get past the Champions League round of 16.
Hernandez told reporters it was now up to him to convince his new bosses and the fans that the 80 million euro transfer sum was well invested.
Bayern kick off their Bundesliga season on August 16 against Hertha Berlin.
