According to a report from RMC Sport, Zidane is getting the coaching itch once again — and one of the clubs that fits the profile that he is looking for is none other than the German Rekordmeister.
Take a look at this:
Bayern is one of 4 credible options for Zinedine Zidane, who intends to take over a club this summer. Zidane has always had the utmost respect for the institution of Bayern, based on solid foundations & financial means that allow them to compete for the CL every year [@RMCsport] pic.twitter.com/8FRT4h4n6m— Bayern & Germany (@iMiaSanMia) January 27, 2023
Despite the team’s uneven play at times, there is nothing to suggest that Nagelsmann is on the hot seat with the club (even some people are speculating that frustrations are starting to boil over).
It is odd that this story made its way to the public. It seems like something that was leaked by Zidane’s camp, though, right?
I really want to bury this rumor, but now, instead of tweets with fleeting hope, there are just notifications doing nothing more than kicking dirt on the grave of this (absurd) rumor. Anyway, Bayern Munich and Manchester United have “no chance” at Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane:
❗️News #Kane: More talks between Tottenham/agent took place. Been told that Tottenham is „very optimistic“ now that Kane will extend beyond 2024. Bayern and #MUFC should have „no chance“. Bayern don’t give up hope but the bosses are more & more pessimistic. #COYS @SkySportDE pic.twitter.com/HjynzAcgaT— Florian Plettenberg (@Plettigoal) January 27, 2023
I am ready to Grim Reaper this rumor...who is with me?
Bayern Munich is scuffling...BFW’s podcast got whacked like Joe Pesci walking into that room in Goodfellas...and there is a ton of news going on.
Plus, Bayern Munich has yet another game in a jammed in — this time against Eintracht Frankfurt.
Yeah, there is A LOT going on, but we are covering it all here! Preview? Yes. Riffing on the news? No doubt. Some entertainment talk? For sure. Here is what we have on tap for this episode:
- A preview for Bayern Munich vs. Eintracht Frankfurt.
- There seems to be a changing of opinion on Leon Goretzka — and is Ryan Gravenberch going to take over Goretzka’s starting role?
- FC Barcelona tried to hijack Bayern Munich’s deal for Konrad Laimer and the word that Marcel Sabitzer might want to stay.
- Chelsea FC’s Kai Havertz and Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane are probably off the table for Bayern Munich.
- Bayern Munich’s plan for the attack and why it is a mess.
- Some thoughts on the latest episode of The Last of Us — and some news on the future of Cobra Kai.
Whatever happens with Harry Kane might not matter too much for Manchester United anyway. The Red Devils are already plotting a move for RB Leipzig’s Dani Olmo:
My „Falk‘s Fact Files“ @caughtoffside: @ManUtd could steal a march over @FCBarcelona in the race for Dani Olmo, as a release clause is set to be added if the player will sign a new contract @RBLeipzig Amount: €70 til 75 Miohttps://t.co/jCb5S9k5Zd— Christian Falk (@cfbayern) January 27, 2023
Liverpool are believed to be leading the chase to sign Jude Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund this summer. Real Madrid and Manchester City are also keen.
Bayern Munich kicked off its Bundesliga re-start with a not-so-promising, but also no-so-concerning draw with RB Leipzig, which left a ton to talk about.
When you look at that, the quick turnaround for a match against FC Köln, the crazy news that this podcast has been wacked by SBN/Vox, the Yann Sommer acquisition, more rumors on Harry Kane and Kai Havertz, there is a TON to talk about.
So join me for this podcast journey, we are going to hit on a number of topics — because, damn it, that is exactly what we do here:
- A quick look at the draw with RB Leipzig.
- A preview of the FC Köln match.
- Looking at the latest rumors on Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane and Chelsea FC’s Kai Havertz.
- The future of Bavarian Football Works and Bavarian Podcast Works.

The NWSL is about to add a new more clubs to its mix;
NEW: The National Women’s Soccer League is set to add teams in Utah, Boston and the San Francisco Bay Area, with the coastal teams agreeing to record $50 million expansion fees.— Rachel Bachman (@Bachscore) January 27, 2023
There is a much larger market for women’s soccer in the United States than what exists today. Clubs would be wise to hop in now.
