With the recent reports that both FC Barcelona and Juventus wanted to bring him in, Bayern Munich manager Hansi Flick avoided making any commitments about his future during Friday’s press conference.

When asked about when he would make a decision on the Germany job, Flick did not want to get into specifics.

“I can’t say that yet. I don’t feel any pressure. The conversations are good, there is nothing more to say about it. I have two more games to do here now,” said Flick (as captured by Tz). “I am grateful to be able to be with the team for so long. We have the chance to get 80 points, that’s one goal. The other is the 40 goals by Lewandowski. If we can achieve both, it would be an outstanding thing, and to do that we have to deliver two top performances.”

As for another DFB-related question, Flick did not give any indication on if he knew if Thomas Müller would be recalled.

“I don’t know any more than you do. Thomas has been showing top performances for two years, Flick said. “You like to have a player like that in the team, he always gives everything for the team. We are glad that he performs so well so often. He always has to play in this team. But it is not my place to decide. This is a decision by Jogi and the coaching team.”

Of course, if Flick eventually replaces Joachim Löw, the 56-year-old could clear the way for Müller to return to Germany fairly easily.
