With Hansi Flick leaving Bayern to replace Joachim Löw as Germany’s head coach, theGerman champions have reached an agreement with RB Leipzig to appoint Julian Nagelsmann as their manager.

Bayern president, Hainerhas, told Abendzeitung: "We had to find an agreement with Leipzig because Julian Nagelsmann was still bound there. Do not believe all the numbers that were being rumored."

Justifying a big-money move for the 33-year-old, Hainer added: "FC Bayern are one of the best teams in Europe, and they also need a top coach. We managed to do that by signing Julian Nagelsmann."

Flick led Bayern to led Bundesliga, DFB-Pokal, DFL-Supercup, Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, and FIFA Club World Cup in the stunning short spell he had with the Bavarians.

However, the club’s board are confident Nagelsmann is the ideal replacement for him. Hainer added on events in the dugout: "We had a very successful time with Hansi Flick as head coach, and we are very grateful to him for that. Six titles in one season, only Pep Guardiola has achieved that with FC Barcelona in 2009.

"Now we have Julian Nagelsmann hired, a coach who, despite his young age, has already had an impressive career and is in great demand in Europe.

"Julian Nagelsmann comes from Bavaria and has repeatedly emphasised that FC Bayern Munich is a matter close to his heart. I am happy that it has happened so quickly.

"We had a few conversations with Hansi Flick, but in the end it was his desire to change after this season. We then complied with this request."
