According to Germany-based Spanish reporter Juanma Romero, Bayern Munich have contacted former Barcelona manager Luis Enrique as possible replacement for Carlo Ancelotti.

In his first year as a Barcelona manager, Enrique led the club to their second treble, with their first treble coming under former Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola. Enrique has a strong personality and there were rumors of conflicts with Lionel Messi in his first year but the club still won nine trophies over three years with Enrique at the helm.

He may just be what Bayern Munich need, someone who brings discipline and has managed the biggest names with the biggest personalities in football in a tough environment.

Bayern are reported to be in contract negotiations with Thomas Tuchel, the former Borussia Dortmund manager to takeover for Ancelotti, possibly after the international break. Until there is official confirmation of a hire though, the speculation will continue to see who takes over the Bayern Munich hot seat.
