A good friend of mine with German links was telling me that the arrogant Bundesliga rags are currently in a bit of a pickle and the so called well oiled machine is possibly soon to be in need of some serious Duckhams Hypergrade. The Ancellotti appointment has caused some real problems at the club including some infighting amongst the players, with their being pro and anti Carlo factions. They're also a little concerned about finding a suitable and capable replacement. Apparently Klopp had always interested them, but since his time at Liverpool they have cooled their interest and do not see him as a viable option. He also told me that they want a strong disciplinarian type, with the right footballing ethos and that Carlo was a bit too easy come easy go for those in charge at Bayern. He also said that the next two transfer windows would be a good time to pounce if City did have any genuine interest in any of their players as he understands that the squad will be dismantled and completely rebuilt.
