Cologne - While the Bundesliga's many stars continue to build up their fitness levels ahead of the new season, clubs up and down the country are working tirelessly behind the scenes to strengthen their playing staff in time for the big kick-off in mid August.
bundesliga.com has been taking a closer look at each of the 18 top-flight clubs' summer transfer dealings so far, and we end our series with the champions, FC Bayern München.
How they fared in 2014/15…
Last season went according to plan for FC Bayern, who remained at the top of the Bundesliga from Matchday 4 right through to the end of the campaign, dominating almost at will with their possession-based football. It earned them a third straight Bundesliga title, and the obvious aim for this season is to become the first side to win four straight league titles in Germany. To ensure that they can go even further in other competitions, notably the UEFA Champions League, a few additions have been made to the playing staff.
