0 720

Bayern Munich have announced that Julian Nagelsmann is to become its new manager, with the Bundesliga champions reportedly paying up to £22 million ($30m) compensation to RB Leipzig to secure the services of the highly-rated coach on a five-year contract.

After learning of Hansi Flick’s desire to walk away from his role at the Allianz Arena when the 2020-21 campaign comes to an end, Bayern wasted little time in getting a successor lined up.

The defending German champions didn’t look far for a top candidate to replace Flick, with Nagelsmann being lured away from domestic rivals Leipzig on a long-term agreement that will begin on July 1. The deal will make the 33-year-old the most expensive coach in history.
