The contract situation between Bayern Munich and Hansi Flick could take a few turns before all is said and done.

The drama between Hansi Flick and Bayern Munich might not be as close to being over as originally thought, even with reports that Julian Nagelsmann has agreed to terms with the club.

A few things seem clear:

Therein lies the rub.

The organization most closely linked to Flick has been the DFB, which needs a replacement for Joachim Löw. The DFB, however, is not willing to pay anything for a new manager.

It has been said over and over again...and now one more time.

DFB vice president Rainer Koch took to the airwaves on BR24 Sport (as captured by @iMiaSanMia) to reiterate that point once again:

At this point, it is hard to discern what happens next. Is Flick be willing to sit out the rest of his contract (2023), which would also see him miss the next World Cup cycle? Or...will Flick move to another club? Admittedly, this seems very unlikely, despite those pesky Juventus rumors.

Whatever happens with Flick, it appears that the Nagelsmann situation is now simply down to how many millions it will take for the Bavarians to pay RB Leipzig to make this move official.

Maybe Bayern Munich will be more willing to let Flick walk for free if it officially secures Nagelsmann?

As always, stay tuned...
