Per Sport1, Bayern Munich has not reached out to RB Leipzig to discuss the contractual status of manager Julian Nagelsmann. Multiple reports have emerged in recent days saying that the Bavarians could have an interest in the 33-year-old should Hansi Flick leave the club this summer:

The people in charge of Leipzig — board boss Oliver Mintzlaff and sports director Markus Krösche — have received no request and certainly no offer for Nagelsmann from Bayern in the past few weeks for SPORT1 information.

The news regarding Bayern Munich’s alleged talks with Nagelsmann’s agents are true — but not with regard to a move for the young coach, but for other clients:

It is also clear that the Nagelsmann’s agents Volker Struth and Sascha Breese from the “Sports 360” agency are in regular contact with Bayern. Talks on Säbener Strasse also focused on clients Niklas Süle (contract until 2022) and Adrian Fein (on loan to PSV Eindhoven).

So...let’s just play a game. If Flick were to leave and RB Leipzig were willing to sell Nagelsmann to Bayern Munich, what would the cost be? Take a look:

According to SPORT1 information, Leipzig can only think of giving Nagelsmann over for a sum of up to 15 to 20 million euros.
