Arsene also added that he would take a decision in the coming days or weeks. While talking to a local media outlet, the Frenchman said that he would never refuse to talk to Bayern as he knew the people who have been running one of Germany's most successful clubs and added that at one point in his career he was going to Bayern Munich but that move did not pan out.
