Don't expect Carlo Ancelotti to detail what his plans are for Bayern Munich ahead of him taking over the club this summer. Carlo and FC Bayern have agreed to a "vow of silence" until July 1, according to a report from Sport 1.

This will probably make some Bayern fans unhappy, as they were hoping Ancelotti would begin detailing all of his plans for Bayern's future as soon as possible. However, it makes sense for the club and current manager to hope that Ancelotti would refuse to speak publicly about the team until the current season is finished.

In other good news, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge confirmed this week that Carlo was already working on learning German ahead of joining the club this summer. Speaking to the media from Bocconi University in Milan, Rummenigge said, "I'm certain that he will already be able to speak a bit when he comes to Germany in summer."

Ancelotti will become FC Bayern head coach on July 1, 2016 on a contract that runs through June 30, 2019.
