Favre is apparently ‘enticed’ by the project ahead at Newcastle and would take the job, if it was offered to him.
Newcastle’s board also apparently regard Favre very highly, which suggests he could be in with a strong chance of getting the job.
The 63-year-old manager has had a large amount of success in the Bundesliga over a long career.
Favre has been in management for over 20 years now, and his knowhow could be crucial in helping Newcastle out of their current situation.

Coming to England?
But his desire to come to England remains and the job at Newcastle is one which appeals to him, according to the latest update.
His stylish, attacking brand of football could go down well with the St. James’ Park crowd too.
Favre has tended to play on the front foot wherever he has been, which is something which the Newcastle fans are craving after Steve Bruce’s time in charge.

He has won two league titles in Switzerland and has also impressed in charge of the likes of Borussa Mochengladbach and Borussia Dortmund.
Favre would be taking charge of Newcastle at a precarious time, though.
The Magpies are currently sat in 19th place in the Premier League table, having collected just four points from nine games to date, meaning the new owners are under pressure to get their first managerial appointment right.

Football Manager’s database has always been its greatest asset. Once upon a time developer Sports Interactive used to be lucky to prize info away from real club scouts – now it’s the other way around. The FM database has become a tool in its own right for many major clubs’ scouting networks. This guy even got a data analysis position at Serbian side FK Bežanija thanks in part to his FM prowess.
So when we leave that database to crunch through the next 25 years of the sport, the results aren’t entirely spurious. The numbers governing player ability, potential and position here aren’t tailored and balanced for an easy player experience. They’re the football world’s best attempt and quantifying its entire population’s talents, and they can predict the future as well as anybody. How will the wealth generated by the new generation of superstars be distributed? When will Newcastle, the new richest club in the world, win its first trophy? Will Cristiano Ronaldo ever stop scoring goals?
Leave it to the FM database. And if you do take stock in its predictions, they make for some very sobering news for certain clubs.
Serie A: Roman Empire toppled by La Samp
Juve fans, you might prefer to sit down for this. We’ve got some bad news.
After winning the Scudetto nine years in a row in the 2010s, The Old Lady, it seems, is knocked off its stride by Inter’s rise to power. After their breakthrough title win in the real world in 20/21, The Nerazzurri win the next two titles. Roma wins in 23/24, followed at long last by a Serie A title for AC Milan. Anyone proclaiming a return to the Total Football days of the early 90s is quickly silenced, though: Juve regroup and claim the following title.
After that point, however, all league titles lead to Rome.
Roma win 10 Scudetti over our 25-year simulation, including seven in succession starting in 26/27 and even a Champions League trophy in 29/30. This is the lone flash of silverware, though, in an otherwise barren period for Italian teams in the competition.
Of all teams, it’s Sampdoria who finally end Roma’s spell of domination. Yes, Sampdoria, who haven’t won anything since David Platt was a dominant force in Serie A, take the club’s second-ever title in the 33/34 season and after Roma nick the following one, La Samp take the next seven. In fact, in the decade between the 35/36 and 45/46 seasons, Sampdoria finishes no lower than second place.
It’s Milan who ends La Samp’s incredible run, taking the 43/44 title, followed of course by Inter in 44/45 and Roma in our current season, 2045/46.
How did Roma and Sampdoria become the twin giants of the league? Well, Roma can thank Roberto Piccoli in part, who won the league’s top goalscorer award five years on the bounce. As for Sampdoria, they’re well-endowed with regens. Winning the last 12 player of the year awards between them, it appears Portuguese winger Manuel Semedo and Peruvian forward Alonso Maldonado are the Ronaldo and Messi of their day, and they both wound their way to northern Italy. Presumably, Alonso Maldonado’s parents were especially big fans of the 2012 F1 Spanish Grand Prix.
Bundesliga: The Rise of Hertha, the fall of Bayern
Don’t get too worried, Bayern fans. They extend an already extraordinary real-life run at the beginning of our simulation to make it 14 titles in a row. After the 25/26 season though, the stars don’t shine so bright for FC Hollywood. Just three titles in the next 19 years means the once-unstoppable force is merely competitive.
The honors are shared among four other sides during that spell. Firstly by RB Leipzig, then by Leverkusen, whose 28/29 win represents the realization of a dream held many decades ago by the likes of Neuville, Ballack and Lucio when they wore red and black. Leipzig and Bayern trade blows for a few years before an unlikely candidate steps forth to take a title – Borussia Mönchengladbach. A magnet for silverware back in the 1970s, Die Fohlen end a dry spell lasting 56 years when they secure the 32/33 Bundesliga title.
Sadly for fans, it’s a one-off. But as the years roll by and Leipzig and Bayer continue to line their pockets with silverware, Hertha Berlin plots its ascendancy. Without a top-flight title since 1931, Hertha finally wins again in 2037/38, more than a century later. They finish runners-up in four of the next five seasons, lick their wounds, and then win both the 44/45 and 45/46 titles.
Predictably it’s Lewandowski’s prolific scoring that keeps Bayern’s run going in the early years, then a returning Timo Werner easing back into Bundesliga life with a top scorer award at his new home Bayern.
Much of the next 20 years in that category belong to Borussia Mönchengladbach, whose swashbuckling attacking style give Richard, and then various regens, numerous top scorer gongs.
Premier League: Abramovic and Mansour’s fortunes go a long way
At the time of writing, Newcastle has just become the richest club in the world. It’s the latest chapter in a story that began with Roman Abramovic’s Chelsea takeover and continued when Sheikh Mansour gave Man City the funds to transform their fortunes. Tempers and passions are running high in England. Arguments are being had about whether something more valuable and less tangible than team ownership itself is being sold. Beer mats across the nation are being knocked to the floor under angry fists meeting sticky pub tables.
What does the cold, unfeeling database make of it all? Well, apparently if you want to buy your way to success in the Prem, you need to have done it before 2011.
Man City and Chelsea are far and away the most successful teams of the 25 simulated years, winning a combined 20 league titles between them – exactly ten apiece. Newcastle does indeed find silverware, but not until the 2038/39 season. And even then, they only manage one more title two years later before the old guard of Chelsea rekindle their metronomic success.
Elsewhere, there are only glimpses of the glory days for Arsenal – 29/30 and 35/36 champions – and Man United – 23/34 champions. Nothing, it appears, in the next quarter-century of world football, can wrongfoot the financial titans who began their journeys by signing the likes of Mateja Kezman and Robinho.
It’s better news in Europe all round. Chelsea and City take numerous Champions Leagues over the years, as by now everyone would expect, but there are also wins for Liverpool, Arsenal, and Southampton. Southampton!
It’s a star-studded league for the duration, at least. Erling Haaland makes his way to Man City, possibly a last act of vengeance over that Roy Keane tackle on his dad, while Man United entice Kylian Mbappe away from PSG and get his best years.
What has this entirely fictional quarter-century revealed to us about the game of football? Probably, above all else, that sport’s inherent unpredictability is its strongest asset. As long as it involves hitting a sphere with such an irregular shape as a human foot, there’ll always be outliers, and mandate for dreamers. The billionaire owners might increase their chances for success in the future, but they can’t dictate it.
