Bayern Munich have reportedly identified Atletico Madrid’s Diego Simeone as the prime candidate to become their next manager.

Hans-Dieter Flick is currently serving as the caretaker boss for the Bavarians and will keep his place for the rest of the season.

According to Goal.com, Bayern have set their sights on the Argentine gaffer, who has so far endured a mixed season with the Rojiblancos.

Simeone's men have produced 10 draws and 4 defeats in the Spanish top flight this season despite spending big last summer.

In contrary, Atletico are performing well in the Champions League games, having defeated the reigning champions, Liverpool, in the round of 16 first leg.

Elsewhere in Germany, Bayern have been impressive under Flick, but his reign will be determined upon the European glory.

Pep Guardiola and Erik ten Hag are some of the names linked with the Bavarians, though the former is keen on staying put with Manchester City.

Bayern are currently topping the Bundesliga table and will face Chelsea this week in the Champions League.
