Former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has been linked with the Bayern Munch job after leaving AS Roma in January.
Recent reports have claimed that the Portuguese coach is interested in taking over from Thomas Tuchel and is learning German as a result. Mourinho's reported interest comes after Saturday's 3-0 defeat against Bayer Leverkusen which has left the German giants five points off Xabi Alonso's league leaders.
Bayern's struggles threaten to end their 11-year reign as Bundesliga champions with former Blues boss Tuchel under pressure to turn things around at the Allianz Arena. The 50-year-old replaced Julian Nagelsmann in March last year when the club were still in three competitions (league, cup and Champions League).
But Bayern were knocked out of both Europe and the cup before narrowly edging past Borrusia Dortmund to finish as champions once again. 2023/24 has also seen the Munich club struggle on occasions with Tuchel's side already out of the German Cup and are now needing to claw back a five-point gap in the league to overtake unbeaten leaders Leverkusen.
If Mourinho was to take charge of Bayern, you can bet that he would want to splash the cash on expensive new additions in the summer. Below are three potential Chelsea players the former Blues boss may consider...
