It has been widely assumed that Bayern Munich manager Hansi Flick would move to Germany once this season ends. Flick seems like a natural choice to take over for Joachim Löw once the Bundestrainer formally steps down later this summer.
On Wednesday, we received the ESPN report that detailed how FC Barcelona was pursuing Flick — only to be told that the 56-year-old was close to finalizing a deal with the DFB.
Now it appears that Barcelona has company: Juventus and perhaps a few national teams. The Italian are allegedly interested in Flick according to Bild (as captured by Twitter account @iMiaSanMia):
Juventus & Barcelona are interested in H Flick. It's been discussed with his family that Flick could take a job abroad. National teams are also keen, but should he decide to work for a NT, Germany has priority.

The report also states that Flick is in no hurry to make a decision on his future. Flick will go on vacation when the season ends and unwind before taking a look at what he will do next. Bild also stated that the DFB will be planning on offering Flick a deal that would run through 2024, which would see him lead Die Mannschaft through the 2022 World Cup and 2024 European Championships.
