Per a report from Bild (as captured by Twitter account @iMiaSanMia), Bayern Munich’s future CEO Oliver Kahn will meet with manager Hansi Flick to discuss the coach’s future plans.

The meeting seems to be the latest part of the saga that has stemmed from an alleged misalignment between Flick and sporting director Hasan “Brazzo” Salihamidzic. It seems clear that Flick and Salihamidzic are not completely alignment — and some reports state that it has gotten tense between the two at certain moment — but with the DFB’s rumored interest in Flick as its successor to Joachim Löw, there seems to be more urgency in sorting things out one way or the other internally on Säbener Straße:

The odd part of this story is that it seems as if factions have developed within the Bayern Munich front office — at least per Bild:

Clearly, there are issues. Clearly, the interpersonal dynamics are strained, but hopefully a summit between Kahn and Flick can help sort out some kind of direction for Bayern Munich and Flick alike.
