Fulham manager Mark Hughes is a surprise inclusion on the shortlist to replace Louis van Gaal as head coach at Bayern Munich.

The Daily Telegraph reports the Bundesliga champions president, Uli Hoeness, wants Hughes,  Bayern Leverkusen coach Jupp Heynkes or former Germany captain Matthias Sammer for the post.

Hughes joined Fulham last summer and has slowly improved results at Craven Cottage.

The former Wales manager would be tempted by the German giants after playing for them in the 1987-88 season, when Hoeness was the manager.

One snag to the deal would be Hughes wanting to bring in his own backroom staff of Mark Bowen and Eddie Niedzwiecki.

Hughes is said to be happy at Fulham and feels no desire to leave Craven Cottage.

But Bayern could be too big a club to turn down with their stature and resources.
