“I think we will have a decision within a week,” Hoeness said on Friday in comments reported by the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung newspaper.

Since Tuchel's departure was announced in February, Bayern has missed out on signing Leverkusen coach Xabi Alonso and Germany's Julian Nagelsmann, both of whom opted to stay with their teams. Since then, Austria coach Ralf Rangnick, formerly of Manchester United, has said he has been in contact with Bayern.
