Zinedine Zidane has not been contacted by Bayern Munich about potentially replacing Thomas Tuchel as manager. Zidane has been heavily linked to Bayern in recent days by Spanish media.

Zidane is on Bayern's shortlist, though he is below Brighton's Roberto De Zerbi, Austria coach Ralf Rangnick and Stuttgart's Sebastian Hoeness.

Zidane speaks neither German nor English fluently, and considers communication and man-management crucial to his success.

Zidane hasn't coached since the end of his second stint at Madrid in the summer of 2021.
