Bayern Munich are all set to rope in Julian Nagelsmann as their head coach next season. Hansi Fick, their current manager has already announced his intention of leaving the German club after the completion of this season.
Julian Nagelsmann, the current RB Leipzig coach has reportedly asked the club to terminate his contract at the end of this season. The German tactician has impressed in his time in the Bundesliga with both Leipzig and Hoffenheim, and he’s long been tipped for an even bigger job.

Nagelsmann boasts of an impressive resume despite being very young as a manager. He has managed in the Bundesliga for five years, having initially taken charge of Hoffenheim. Aged just 28, he was the youngest manager in the Bundesliga’s history and he steered the club from a position in the relegation zone to an eventual Champions League place.
RB Leipzig demands a transfer of 25 million euros from the German record champions, and such a fee for a manager has not been paid yet in the history of Bundesliga.
Nagelsmann has said he hasn’t held talks with Bayern and that he wouldn’t “start a war with my employer.” But his statements didn’t dismiss speculation about a possible move to Munich. Nagelsmann’s current contract with RB Leipzig runs till 2023.
Sport 1 reported that negotiations have started and said the financial deal will be “significantly greater than 15 million euros”.
“If we are to agree to Hansi’s wish then all parties must jointly find a solution which also satisfies Bayern,” Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told Bild on Sunday.
The 33-year old German has never hidden his desire to one day coach Bayern, especially as he comes from the Bavaria region. The young coach will be a great fit for the German Champions.
