Bayern Munich are interested in hiring former Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte, with Niko Kovac under pressure in the Bundesliga.

The Telegraph reports a host of clubs could consider a move for the Italian, but they will need to negotiate with the Blues to do so.

Conte was linked with the Real Madrid job throughout the summer and reports have suggested he is still on their radar, should they look to sack Julen Lopetegui midseason.

Bayern Munich are also said to be keeping Conte in mind, with pressure mounting on Kovac after a poor start to the season.

The German champions have found themselves sixth in the Bundesliga and there are concerns over Kovac’s long-term future at the club already.

Manchester United have also been discussed as a potential destination for the former Chelsea head coach, with Jose Mourinho treading a fine line at Manchester United.

Should Conte take another job midseason, he will not be entitled to any further compensation from the club from that point the report claims.
