Shadow of Germany
After intense courting by Borussia Dortmund and Schalke last season, Bayern Munich are now the latest German club looking to make Aston Villa boss David Beckham
their new manager.
Beckham has had an enormous amount of success with Villa in his five seasons in charge, winning every trophy possible save for the Premier League and the European Super Cup.
Last season, his Villa side completed an amazing treble of the Capital One Cup, the FA Cup and the Europa League.
However, he has had an inconsistent record in the league.
This has not discouraged clubs like Dortmund, Arsenal, Manchester City, Manchester United and Barcelona - all of these clubs have tried to make Beckham their manager at some point in time.
Although he has stuck to his job at Villa Park for more than five years, Beckham finally looks set to move with new rumors explaining the 42-year-old's absence from management, an absence that only ended last week.
If these rumors are to be believed, Beckham had traveled to Singapore for talks with Bayern chairman Karl Heinz-Rumenigge
The Bavarian club was a major European force under Antonio Conte
but when he left for Barcelona, his replacement Rafa Benitez
could only lead Bayern to a measly 6th place in the Bundesliga. With Bayern currently stuck in 7th, the Bayern higher-ups have decided to dismiss Benitez, ending his torrid time at the Allianz Arena.
It remains to be seen if Beckham will finally quit the Villans.
