Bundesliga’s most expensive manager
JULIAN Nagelsmann will take over at Bayern Munich from July 1 in a deal that makes him the Bundesliga’s most expensive manager, with RB Leipzig receiving compensation that could rise to €25 million (US$30 million).
Nagelsmann, who had been prominent on Tottenham’s wishlist, is to succeed Hansi Flick on a five-year contract worth €8m a season before tax. Flick this month announced his intention to leave Bayern at the end of the season.
Bayern and Leipzig confirmed on Tuesday that a deal for Nagelsmann was done. The 33-year-old is in his second season at Leipzig, who look set to finish runners-up to Bayern. Last season he led the team to the Champions League semi-finals, where they lost against Paris Saint-Germain, and third place in the Bundesliga. – theguardian.com
