Conte and Mourinho on Bayern Munich Short List

Thomas Tuchel will most likely leave Bayern Munich at the end of the season, if not sooner if they can’t get past Lazio in the Champions League’s Round of 16, and Antonio Conte is among the candidates to replace him, along with Zinedine Zidane, José Mourinho, and Xabi Alonso, Bild reports (via Ansa).

The Special One, who was axed by Roma in mid-January, is currently learning German. Instead, the Italian gaffer believes he could finally coronate his dream of winning the Champions League with the Bavarians.

Conte sees Bayern Munich as a top-three club in Europe, the publication informs. After spending time in England at Chelsea and Tottenham and in Serie A, at Inter and Juventus, he’d like to add a spell in the Bundesliga to his resume.

The former Italy boss gave the German club his availability. Their management is pondering further high-profile names too, though. He has been linked to most of the top Serie A clubs in recent months, primarily Napoli and Milan.

Our Take on Conte and Bayern Munich

He’s seemingly getting attached to a new team every week, which means that he doesn’t have a future landing spot in his pocket, as probably normal in February. Being a free agent could work in his favor. It’d be a slap in Napoli’s face if he took the job during the season. Xabi Alonso is the belle of the ball right now, but a few outfits are vying to hire him.
