Arsene Wengerhas revealed that he will hold further discussions withBayern Munichnext week.

The formerArsenalmanager is in the running to replace Niko Kovac, who left the club after Bayern’s 5-1 defeat toEintracht Frankfurtlast Saturday.

Reports had claimed that Bayern were not interested in Wenger, but the 70-year-old has revealed that he has already spoken to Bayern’s hierarchy and will make a final decision next week.

‘On Wednesday afternoon, [Karl-Heinz] Rummenigge called me,’ Wenger told beIN Sports.

‘I could not answer at that moment and out of politeness I called him back. He was in his car to the game against Olympiacos.

‘We talked for four to five minutes maximum and he told me that they’ve signed [Hans-Dieter] Flik to be the coach.

‘He will manage the next two games, because they play Borussia Dortmund tomorrow [on Saturday].

‘He asked me if I’d be interested because they are looking for a coach, I told him I didn’t have any thoughts about it. It needs some time to think about.

‘We decided together we will talk next week, because I’m in Doha until Sunday night. This is the true story.

‘I wish well to Bayern, which is actually at a turning point because [Uli] Hoeness, a key man for this club, is leaving.

‘Rummenigge will leave in one year, it seems the future is uncertain.

‘And this club which has always managed stuff by being very discreet and direct is today very exposed with rumours coming from everywhere.

‘For myself, I wish good luck to Bayern and for me the situation is clear.’
