Fulham boss Martin Jol is considering his future at Craven Cottage.
The People says Jol has been told he will have to work on a tight budget as he looks to make changes to an ageing squad.
And after two years in mid-table at Craven Cottage, it is believed he may fancy a switch back to the German Bundesliga, where he previously played and managed.
Jol is said to be frustrated at the club's refusal to strengthen their squad significantly.
His relationship with well-regarded chief executive Alistair Mackintosh is understood to be strained over the issue.
Jol originally signed a two-year deal which would expire next month, though Fulham insist they have activated an extra one-year option for his services - so any interested club would have to pay compensation.
