Former Chelsea and Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho continues to be linked with a return to top-flight management and the betting markets have Bayern Munich as his most likely destination, his odds on a move to the Bundesliga champions being slashed from 3/1 to just 6/4 over the past few hours. Bayern dispensed with the services of Niko Kovac over the weekend and the ‘Special One’ is being touted as his most likely successor.
Indeed a reported 57% of all bets on the market have been aimed towards Mourinho moving to the Allianz Arena while around 27% have been punted on Arsenal being his next club, Gunners boss Unai Emery under increased pressure following an inconsistent start to the season.
As far as Bayern Munich are concerned, the final nail in the coffin for Niko Kovac was almost certainly the 5-1 thrashing by Eintracht Frankfurt and as things stand, the reigning German champions sit fourth in the Bundesliga table with four points separating them from current leaders Borussia Monchengladbach.

Other names in the frame for the vacant Bayern job include former Juventus manager Max Allegri at odds of 9/1 and Ajax boss Erik Ten Hag at the same price, while Arsene Wenger is a 25/1 punt to be tempted back into management by the Bundesliga side.
