Branchini back in Bayern Munich talks amid Guardiola interest

The prospect of a return for Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is being discussed inside Bayern Munich.

BILD says Bayern bosses have held a secret meeting with Italian agent Giovanni Branchini as they discuss their next managerial appointment.

Niko Kovac was axed earlier this month leaving Hans-Dieter Flick to assume the role at least until Christmas.

Guardiola's name has been increasingly linked with a return to Germany and Branchini was the man who arranged the deal that took the Catalan to the Allianz Arena in 2013.

Guardiola enjoyed a trophy-laden three years in Bavaria, but has a contract at the Etihad Stadium until 2021.
