Julian Nagelsmann would like to succeed Hansi Flick at FC Bayern. The agreement between all parties should be reached as soon as possible.
It goes in quick succession: On Sunday evening, the first reports appeared that FC Bayern had started talks with Julian Nagelsmann and RB Leipzig to guide the promising youngster coach from the Red Bulls to Munich, according to information from SPOX and goal Nagelsmann, who comes from Landsberg am Lech in Upper Bavaria, wants to succeed FCB coach Hansi Flick from next season.
As the picture reported on Monday afternoon that he had even already agreed on a commitment with his possible future employer, with an agreement between the two clubs involved, SPOX and goal-Information promptly, so calculated in the current week.
According to matching media reports, the Saxons are demanding a transfer fee of 20 to 30 million euros for Nagelsmann, whose contract is still valid until 2023. It would be the second time that Nagelsmann is worth several million euros to a club. In 2018, Leipzig transferred around five million euros to TSG Hoffenheim to free Nagelsmann from Kraichgau.
Just a few weeks ago, the trainer who was being courted had an interview with the Süddeutsche Zeitung Somewhat vaguely expressed and implied about his plans not to have to fulfill every one of his working papers until the end of his life, but in no case to want to “hit the wall”, a possible change request at RB should cause displeasure. Rather, there must always be a consensus.
FC Bayern: Nagelsmann soon to be the most expensive coach in the world?
If the consensus is reached, which mainly revolves around the rumored transfer fee, Nagelsmann would become the “most expensive” coach in football history and replace the previous record holder Andre Villas-Boas (moved from FC Porto to FC Chelsea in 2011 for 15 million euros) .
Nagelsmann is in many ways the logical heir to the Flick who is willing to emigrate and who may be drawn to the DFB as national coach after the European Championship. The 33-year-old has all the qualities that the German record champions want: a concise, promising game idea, enormous ambition and great potential for development. The fact that he already kept up with the class leader from the south in his childhood and youth should also be beneficial for the whole thing.
While a solution is pending in the Bavarian capital with Nagelsmann on the coaching bench, his current club is facing major upheaval. The designated runner-up officially announced on Monday that the sporting director Markus Krösche’s contract, which originally ran until 2022, would be terminated by mutual agreement at the end of the season, but that they will part ways with immediate effect.
After Krösche, who has repeatedly been associated with the idea of emigration and is now the favorite to succeed Fredi Bobic in Frankfurt, interim manager Christopher Vivell and media director Florian Scholz follow. It is still open who will take over the responsibilities of the sporting director from the coming season.
