Bayern pushed hard to sign the Germany international over the summer before he suffered a knee injury in the Community Shield against Liverpool.
However long-term, Hoeness says they remain keen.
He told Planet Futbol: "We were very interested, we had talks with him. But after his bad injury we could not continue.
"We have to wait and see how his recovery is going. In January or February, the new people in the club will sit down and think."
