The former Real Madrid coach was said to have dismissed the Bayern interest already, but that did not stop another inquiry. However, Lopetegui is now set to become the next coach of Premier League side West Ham, as captured by The Athletic’s David Ornstein (via @iMiaSanMia):

Bayern Munich again made an enquiry about Julen Lopetegui today, but the Spaniard’s sights are set on West Ham. Lopetegui agreed terms with the Premier League side to succeed David Moyes as manager [@David_Ornstein]

Sky Sport journalist Florian Plettenberg has more details:

News #Lopetegui | FC Bayern got in touch again this morning through Max Eberl - confirmed. As first via @David_Ornstein.

Bayern inquired again today if Lopetegui is available - as he was a concrete option. But: Lopetegui declined for this moment because he’s currently the top candidate at West Ham and crucial details are already being negotiated.

➡ Lopetegui has been on the list of Bayern since a few days ago, as revealed last Friday.


The Bayern coaching search is going great.
