Conte on his way to Bayern Munich?

Former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte could reportedly re-enter into club management with Bayern Munich when the current season comes to a close.

The Italian was sacked by the Blues during the summer of 2018 and he has since been on a sabbatical without deliberating a fresh challenge for the ongoing campaign.

According to Corriere dello Sport, a number of high-profile clubs including Inter Milan have expressed their interest in recruiting the Italian tactician, but Bayern seem to hold the advantage in the pursuit.

Bayern have made a terrific turnaround under Niko Kovac to return to the top of the Bundesliga table ahead of Borussia Dortmund, but the hierarchy are still likely to consider a change at the helm.

Still, a move for Conte may not be straightforward and the ex-Blues head coach is likely to demand control over any future transfers happening at the Bavarian giants.

Bayern are currently one point ahead of Dortmund with five games to play, but the league is far from decided with the holders scheduled to play the likes of RB Leipzig and Eintracht Frankfurt before the season concludes.
