Burnley manager Vincent Kompany is expected to make a decision about his future this week, but all indications are he will leave the club.

That’s according to journalist Sacha Tavolieri, who reports that the Burnley manager is now the number one choice for Bayern Munich.

According to his information Kompany will make an official decision about his future this week but internally at Turf Moor there is a feeling that the Belgian coach is going to leave the club. Members of his staff have been informed of this.

That’s because Bayern now consider Kompany as the number one choice to become their new manager and his relationship with Max Eberl should help convince the rest of the Bayern board of the appointment.

More intensive talks regarding his personal terms will come after Kompany’s decision but Bayern are ready to give Burnley financial competition to seal Kompany’s signature.

Now, ordinarily we’d avoid this as the Bayern hunt for a new manager has become something of a farce and Kompany is the umpteenth manager to be the favourite for the job in the last fortnight alone.

However, Tavolieri recently posted about a meeting with Burnley’s Alan Pace and them ‘starting fresh’, which would suggest he’s confident posting this information won’t ruin that agreement.

Indeed, it might even be inferred that he’s receiving the information from inside Burnley, which means this is now very much a situation to keep an eye on.
