Amidst the chaos of the European Super League in the last couple of days, Bayern Munich has another headache to resolve as Hansi Flick publicly requested them to break his contract at the end of the season. Flick confirmed his wish after the win against Wolfsburg on Saturday.

After enjoying success with Die Roten, Flick is reportedly the top target for DFB. Joachim Low has already announced that he will be leaving the German National team after the Euros in the summer. Flick has previously worked with the German team, so it is not a surprise that DFB wants to bring him on board as a successor for Low.

Rekormeister is not going to back down and make things easy for DFB. The German champions have already announced that talks with Flick will be held to resolve this situation. Meanwhile, Die Roten is not going to give away Flick to DFB without compensation.

According to Bild, Rekordmeister is looking for a good fee from DFB if they want to appoint Flick as the German national team’s next head coach. Die Roten can demand this fee since Flick’s contract is set to expire in 2023.

It is completely understandable for Bayern to demand a fee since they are completely fine with keeping Flick due to his good work at the club. Moreover, finding a replacement for Flick is going to be a challenging task.

Along with the attraction of managing the German national team, Flick has endured a strained relationship with Sporting Director Hasan Salihamidzic at Die Roten. Transfer plans have not panned out as the club would have hoped last summer, causing possible frustration for Flick. Flick denied speaking much on his decision while addressing on media, but it does look that he is determined to leave the club.

Die Roten has been heavily linked with RB Leipzig manager Julian Nagelsmann. Leipzig reportedly wants €15-20 million for Nagelsmann in the summer window. Hansi Flick has been brilliant in his 18 months in Bavaria, so the club is well within their rights to ask a fee from DFB. It will be intriguing to see if Flick has a change of heart if DFB decides against paying a fee for him.
