As if the German managerial landscape wasn’t already in enough disarray, Julian Nagelsmann looks set to take on the recently vacated Bayern Munich job, just a little over a week after Hansi Flick announced his imminent departure. The club and Nagelsmann have reportedly agreed on personal terms, and Leipzig have set the fee between €25 and 35 million for Bayern to secure his signature. The move would make Nagelsmann the most expensive manager in the history of the game.
Julian Nagelsmann’s arrival at Bayern Munich was always inevitable, but few expected it to happen this early. However, with the domino effect of Joachim Low leaving Germany and Hansi Flick being the natural replacement, Flick’s natural replacement for the Bayern job was always going to get the call. Leipzig’s players spoke out during interviews this week about expecting the German manager to stay, but it didn’t last very long before the 33-year-old declared to the media that he wished to take on the job and all of that was thrown away.
With Bayern and Nagelsmann both interested, it now appears that the Bavarians are only a small fee away from securing his signature.
