FC Bayern: Wenger contradicts Rummenigge – "I told him that …"

Arsene Wenger: Was it because of a contract details for the sudden Bayern cancellation?
Update from November 8, 2019, 10:41 am:
Arsene Wenger was for a short time the hottest candidate for the coaching job FC Bayern Munich, But suddenly, the speculation seemed to have done – according to the image there was a phone call between Wenger and Karl-Heinz Rummenigge. The Bayern boss should have given the former Arsenal-makers a rebuff (see below in the article).
Now there are more details. Like the English one Mirror reported, there is a clear reason why the two sides have not come together: Apparently Bayern wanted to bind the French until the summer. Wenger is supposed to, it says hoped for a longer-term contract, The Munich were not ready for that.

Update from November 7, 2019, 5:11 pm: According to information of image it should have come this Wednesday (November 6) for a conversation between Arsene Wenger and Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

Bayern appreciate Arsene Wenger very much for his work as a coach at Arsenal London, but he is no option as a coach at FC Bayern Munich. "
Wenger was therefore also willing to work with Hansi Flick, the current interim coach. This could possibly stay longer in office than initially thought. If FC Bayern does not find a suitable immediate solution, it is conceivable that Flick ascends from the intrerims- to the chief coach to be on the sideline of the Red at least until summer. Then it would be easier, for example, to lure Erik ten Hag to the Isar. The Ajax coach had categorically ruled out a club change during the season last.
