Bayern Munich looking to get fee for Hansi Flick and lessen burden to pay for Julian Nagelsmann

It is unclear how Bayern Munich will attempt to generate revenue from a move by Hansi Flick, but the club is seeking to get one.

Sport 1 journalist Florian Plettenberg issued a tweet this morning giving a report on the current state of Bayern Munich’s coaching situation.

As we had already heard, RB Leipzig manager Julian Nagelsmann is considered to be the favorite, but the Bavarians will have to weigh paying upwards of €15 million for the 33-year-old coach.

Where it gets interesting is that Plettenberg indicated that Bayern Munich is looking to get some kind of fee for Flick, but how that would work remains unclear. Is Bayern Munich expecting Flick to buy out his contract or would the board want the DFB to compensate them should Flick take over for Joachim Löw as expected?

The situation would be far more clear if Flick was thought to be moving to another club, but the thought of charging a fee to the DFB might rub some folks the wrong way if that is in the plans.

Finally, Plettenberg said that Ajax boss Erik ten Hag, who coached at Bayern Munich from 2013-2015, is “buzzing” around in the heads of the Bayern Munich bosses. Here are Plettenberg’s tweets in their original form:
