German Bundesliga By: Collins Udeme | 05/10/2017

Former Bayern Munich boss Jupp Heynckes has confirmed that there's been an approach for his services by the Bavarians over the manager’s job until the end of the season but admits nothing is yet signed.

The Bundesliga champions who sacked Carlo Ancelotti last week are looking for a stop gap until Julian Nagelsmann who most likely to take charge long-term turns up next summer.

Heynckes who who Bayern the the treble in 2012/13 confirmed he met with Bayern’s hierarchy – club president Uli Hoeness, chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and sporting director Hasan Salihadmidzic – but would not divulge too many details on what exactly was said.

"It's not clear yet or signed. I have to analyse the whole thing first. Four and a half years have passed since I left Bavaria, and football has changed.

“Many things were discussed." Heynckes told German newspaper the Rheinische Post

A short-term deal for 72-year-old Heynckes suggests Bayern are just keeping the seat warm for the younger man to turn up in June.
