A German sports reporter has been taken off Bayern Munich coverage after it emerged she was in an alleged relationship with the club's manager Julian Nagelsmann.

Lena Wurzenberger, 30, who works for Germany's largest newspaper BILD, will no longer report on the Bundesliga champions due to the apparent conflict of interest between her private and professional lives.

German outlet Sport1 suggests a photo of Nagelsmann and Wurzenberger on a yacht while on holiday together in Ibiza has been circulating online, though these claims are unconfirmed.

Wurzenberger had previously been reporting on Werder Bremen, but was asked to switch to Bayern Munich two years ago. She recently interviewed former Liverpool forward Sadio Mane, following his £35million switch to the Allianz Arena earlier this month.

Nagelsmann meanwhile joined the Bavarian giants last summer, following a successful two-year spell in charge of RB Leipzig.

It comes following reports earlier this month that Nagelsmann, who turns 35 next month, had split up with his wife Verena after 15 years together. The couple have two children and tied the knot in 2018.

It's understood Nagelsmann and Wurzenberger are 'serious' about each other and informed Bayern of their relationship weeks ago.

Once they're back from their holiday, Nagelsmann will have just over a month to prepare for the new Bundesliga season – which starts on August 5.

His number one priority will be to sort out Robert Lewandowski's future, with the Poland international keen to cut ties with the club after eight seasons. Barcelona are pushing hard for his signature, but are yet to strike a deal with Bayern, who are desperate not to lose their superstar striker.
