Leipzig to demand compensation from Bayern for Nagelsmann

RB Leipzig plan to receive at least 15 million euros from Bayern if Julian Nagelsmann moves to them.

In connection with the latest rumors that Hans-Dieter Flick will head the Germany national team after the European Championship, news about the possible successor of the German has become more frequent. The main contender for this vacancy is Julian Nagelsmann from RB Leipzig, who in the shortest possible time of 33 years became a bone of contention on the coaching bridge of any top club.

The Leipzig manager himself denies any possibility of contact with the men from Munich, as he has repeatedly spoken about in an interview. This was his reaction to the words of Lothar Matthaus that he would take on Bayern,

“There have not been and will not be any negotiations with Bayern. I have no idea where Matthaus got this information from. Of course, this also applies to my agents, they also did not have negotiations.

I didn’t speak to the club because there’s nothing to discuss. I have a contract with Leipzig until 2023,” Julian said.

Despite this, we think it is worth understanding what time we live in. Moreover, Bayern are able to negotiate with coaches and footballers. Therefore, we will not be surprised if the German chooses Allianz Arena as a place to continue his career.

But Leipzig are not timid and will try to capitalize on this. There is already information from Sport1 portal that the Bulls will demand 15-20 million euros for their manager. If this happens, it will be the first ever example of a coach's transfer. Previously, clubs had to negotiate with free specialists, wait for their dismissal or the end of their contract. But now there is every chance to observe not the most pleasant bell for modern football.

The reason for this is simple. It takes less time for a player to adapt and understand the football that the team is playing. Coaches, on the other hand, need to connect all the players on the pitch, build a training system, understand the strengths and weaknesses of each one, and then build the game. This takes more time and effort; therefore, if this continues, then football will become too dynamic and monotonous. There will be fewer distinctive teams like Atalanta or Liverpool, where the lion's share of success comes from the coach, not the players.

We do not consider this development to be positive for football. Coaches must fulfill their contracts and goals like no one else. They are the managers with the greatest demand. Therefore, any attempt to squeeze them in time for the sake of instant success will not differ from Sam Allardyce and his arrival in the camp of the Premier League outsiders.
