Current RB Leipzig manager Julian Nagelsmann, 33, will be Bayern Munich's next coach at the end of this season as a replacement for a Hansi Flick who will leave office, the Bavarian team announced on Tuesday. The transfer is not surprising, but what he does is the amount of it, since he becomes the most expensive coach in history.
“FC Bayern have hired 33-year-old Julian Nagelsmann as their new manager. The Bavarian-born coach will leave RB Leipzig to come to Munich at the start of the next season, on July 1, 2021, and his contract with the German champion will be extended for five years, until June 30, 2026”, he announced the Rekordmeister in a statement.
Although Bayern did not specify how much it will pay for its new coach, the German media reported that the club will pay a figure that could reach 25 million euros, including bonuses, to take over his services, since Nagelsmann's contract with Leipzig It ended in 2023.
This makes the rising star of German football the most expensive coach in football history, Sky and Bild point out, surpassing the record held until now by the Portuguese André Villas-Boas, signed by Chelsea from Porto, by a few 15 million in 2011.
