Hansi Flick is looking certain to leave Bayern Munich in the summer. The German manager’s public request is likely to be accepted by the club as they have taken a giant step in securing his successor. The latest murmurs from Germany hint that Julian Nagelsmann could manage Die Roten from next season.

According to Christian Falk of SportBild, Die Roten has reached an agreement with Nagelsmann. However, the complicated part for the German Champions will begin now as RB Leipzig wants hefty compensation for the young manager.

Nagelsmann’s current deal at RB Leipzig is set to expire in 2023, so they do have the leverage of getting a record compensation for a manager. According to Kicker, RB Leipzig is looking for a fee close to €25 million from Die Roten for Nagelsmann.

There has been speculation about Flick due to the manager’s growing frustrations regarding transfer plans. Flick has not been on the same page with Sporting Director Hasan Salihamidzic. The German manager reportedly had a rift from Salihamidzic. However, the club hierarchy insisted that such matters are dealt with internally.

The future of Flick looked away from Die Roten in March when Joachim Low announced his plans to leave his position at the German National team after Euros 2020. Flick has been considered as the ideal option to succeed him since he had previously worked with Low and DFB.

On the other hand, Nagelsmann has been constantly linked with Die Roten in the past few seasons. When Carlo Ancelotti was sacked in 2017, Nagelsmann was considered as favourite to replace him, but he decided to join RB Leipzig. The 33-year-old manager has been attracting attention from clubs across Europe due to his tremendous work at RB Leipzig and Hoffenheim. His teams have played an attractive style of football, and he also boasts a good record of improving young players at both clubs.

Nagelsmann has previously insisted that he has been a boyhood Bayern Munich fan. Since he has now gained experience in Europe with Leipzig, this summer is the right time to take the next step in his career.  He is likely to become the most expensive manager in the Bundesliga since Rekordmeister is likely to pay a fee an excess of €20 million.

Meanwhile, DFB keeps insisting that they will not be paying a fee for a new manager of the German national team. The comments from DFB come after reports in Germany suggested that Die Roten will want a fee for parting ways with Flick.
