Wenger 'in contact' with Bayern

Arsene Wenger ‘in contact with’ Bayern Munich amid interest in vacant manager’s role

Arsene Wenger is interested in the vacant manager’s role at Bayern Munich and has kept in contact with club officials, according to Sky in Germany.

Bayern are unlikely to appoint a new coach ahead of Saturday’s Bundesliga clash against title rivals Borussia Dortmund but Sky in Germany understands there could be developments from Sunday onwards.

Wenger himself maintains he is not yet in discussions with the Bundesliga side about their managerial vacancy – but would “never refuse” to talk to the Germans.

The 70-year-old former is reported to be high on Bayern’s wanted list as they look for a replacement for Niko Kovac, who was sacked following the 5-1 thrashing by Eintracht Frankfurt.
