Julian Nagelsmann started a new era at Bayern Munich last week as he was unveiled as the new head coach of the first team. The young German manager is set to be a long-term appointment as he signed a five-year deal with his boyhood club.

After years of speculation, Nagelsmann finally got a move to Die Roten. His impressive spell at Hoffenheim meant that he was linked with this position when Carlo Ancelotti left the club in 2017. The German manager decided to take an intermediate step by moving to RB Leipzig instead of moving to Bavaria.

The success at Leipzig and the departure of Hansi Flick meant that Nagelsmann was finally able to coach the biggest team in Germany. He started preparations for the new season last week as few senior players and numerous academy graduates started pre-season training.

According to Bild, Nagelsmann has made a good impression on the club chiefs. The German manager has been praised for understanding the economic climate at the club, which could eventually have an impact on the transfer dealings this summer.

Nagelsmann did the right things in his first press conference. He gave glowing references about all senior players in the squad and also praised younger players. The young German manager also acknowledged the responsibility of getting the team to win big trophies every year.

In terms of the transfer market, Die Roten has signed Sven Ulreich, Omar Richards, and Dayot Upamecano this summer. The club president Herbert Hainer recently admitted that the club is expecting €150 million in losses, which could potentially impact the way they conduct transfer business this summer. Sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic suggested that they are not ruling out new arrivals, but there will be no big-money signings.

After missing out on Jurgen Klopp and Thomas Tuchel, Die Roten has managed to get hold of the next big coaching talent in Germany. Going by reports, the start has been positive, but the German club will have to make sure that they stick with him through a difficult phase to eventually achieve long-term targets.

Throughout his coaching career, Nagelsmann has managed to improve players individually through his flexible setups. Die Roten will also hope that the young German manager can improve players next term and challenge on all fronts. Multiple players have expressed excitement about working with Nagelsmann, so it is going to be an intriguing season for the Bavarian faithful.
