- Bayern are top contender to land ex-Chelsea boss Antonio Conte a replacement for current boss Niko Kovac
- The Italian manager was sacked in 2018 despite winning FA Cup title for the Blues during his second season at the club
- Conte spent two seasons at the Stamford Bridge and won the Premier League in his first season
Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich are leading the race to land Antonio Conte as their new manager in the summer.
According to UK Sun citing Corriere dello Sport, the Italian tactician who has not secured another job since his unceremonious exit from Stamford Bridge last summer, is eager to return to coaching role.
The report further revealed that the German giants are looking up to Conte as the ‘most concrete’ replacement for current manager Niko Kovac after his first term at the Allianz Arena.
At the last count, Bayern are back at the top of Bundesliga after Liverpool sent them packing from the Champions League, but the Bavarian giants are set to offer the 49-year-old Conte, who has won the Serie A title three times.
