Kompany won’t hesitate to join Bayern Munich if an offer is tabled

Man City legend Vincent Kompany is interested in becoming the new Bayern Munich manager according to talkSPORT.

Kompany has emerged as a surprise contender to replace Thomas Tuchel and is actively being considered by the German giants.

The Manchester City legend guided Burnley back to the Premier League, however, the Clarets were sent straight back down this season as they finished 19th in the table with just 24 points.

A move to Bayern would be a massive step up for Kompany, who's been in charge at Turf Moor for two years. Before that, he managed Belgian club Anderlecht.

Bayern have endured a torrid season of their own having not won the Bundesliga for the first time in 12 years.

And despite signing England captain Harry Kane in a high-profile move last summer, Bayern have ended the campaign trophyless - something that hasn't happened since the 2011/12 season.

The German giants' search for a new manager has been something of a goose chase having endured many setbacks.

They were interested in recruiting Xabi Alonso, who masterminded Bayer Leverkusen's incredible Bundesliga title-winning campaign which has also seen the first-time German champions go the entire season unbeaten, but the Spaniard has decided to remain.

Bayern also showed an interest in Oliver Glasner, who has made a great impact since taking the Crystal Palace job in February.

But like with their pursuit of Alonso, this move isn't expected to materialise as Glasner and Palace are not looking to part company.

It's since been reported that Bayern have been trying to get Tuchel to come back to the club despite announcing earlier in the season that he would be leaving in the summer.

 The former Chelsea boss is understood to be keen on a return to the Premier League after 14 months at the helm in Bavaria.

He has been linked with the Manchester United job amid uncertainty over Erik ten Hag's future at the club.

Should Tuchel leave Bayern, he will go into his next job on the back of a failure to win a trophy at one of the world's biggest clubs that has grown accustomed to winning silverware.

The six-time European champions finished third in the Bundesliga, 17 points off champions Bayer Leverkusen, and were eliminated in the DFB-Pokal by Saarbrucken, a side playing in the third tier of German football.

Bayern looked set to book their place in the Champions League final but for two late goals by Real Madrid in the second leg of their semi-final clash.
