Thomas Tuchel has likely coached his final home game as Bayern Munich manager, signing off in fine fashion courtesy of a 2-0 win against Wolfsburg. However, unfortnately, he has the lack of a trophy parade on his final home match to blame for his departure.

Tuchel has not had an awful season by any stretch of the imagination. However, given the reputation which Die Roten has built up over the years, even being slightly short of expectations leaves any manager susceptible to walking the plank.

From Bayern Munich's perspective, they now face a race against time to secure their new head coach for the next 2024/25 season. It is a season which must be treated meticulously, with the Bayern Munich fans understandably expecting a trophy return.

Fabrizio Romano provides disappointing update on next Bayern Munich manager

One of the managers recently linked to the Bayern Munich job opening is Oliver Glasner. However, Bayern Strikes recently claimed that Crystal Palace had rebuffed the interest, taking the stance that he will not leave in the summer at any cost.

Well, this has been echoed by the transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, who claims that Oliver Glasner is "untouchable" in the eyes of Crystal Palace and Steve Parish. Furthermore, Glasner is already preparing for his future with Crystal Palace, with new summer signings expected to be made. Therefore, Bayern Munich fans can kiss goodbye to any remaining hope.

As reported by BILD, Bayern Munich were even prepared to pay up to €18m for the services of Glasner. As expected, though, this is not enough for Parish, who sees Glasner as invaluable.

This is a feeling which Bayern Munich fans are used to. After all, Glasner is just one out of a pile of four managers who Bayern Munich failed to secure - Alongside Glasner in the list is Xabi Alonso, Ralf Rangnick and Julien Nagelsmann.

So, for now, the top candidate seems to Hansi Flick. Flick has worked with Bayern Munich as a player, assistant coach and manager. Since leaving Bayern in 2021, Flick managed Germany for two years. Now without a coaching job, the Bayern Munich opening could be perfect for his development as a manager.
