Update [3:40PM EST]

Per Bild, RB Leipzig is requesting €30 million for Julian Nagelsmann:


Things could start happening quickly at Bayern Munch.

Per a report from Tz journalist Manuel Bonke, the Bavarians have made contact with RB Leipzig to discuss a potential deal for manager Julian Nagelsmann. The 33-year-old has a contract with Die Roten Bullen, which runs through 2023 and it can be assumed that Leipzig would like to be compensated for allowing its manager to break his contract early.

Initial reports have already stated that Die Roten Bullen is looking for a proposal in the neighborhood of €15 to €20 million for Nagelsmann, which seems steep, but might be what is needed to get a deal done:

The important part of the tweets reads as follows:

#FCBayern has made contact with #RBLeipzig to push for a signing of Julian #Nagelsmann. He is the desired solution to succeed Hansi #Flick, whose contract termination will be negotiated in the next few days.

Sport1’s Florian Plettenberg also released a version of the story confirming everything Bonke tweeted.

For his part, Nagelsmann is said to see Bayern Munich as a dream job (per Sport1):

Julian Nagelsmann has never made a secret of the fact that Bayern Munich is his dream club. The 33-year-old, who started his Bundesliga career at TSG Hoffenheim, has only been with RB Leipzig for two years. With the change of agent from Marc Kosicke to Volker Struth, he also sent the signal to the industry that an early change cannot be ruled out. Struth has excellent connections to FC Bayern.
