European juggernaut Germany may find its footing once more in the coming days and weeks in the aftermath of Hansi Flick’s forced departure after Bayern Munich are reportedly ready to release Julian Nagelsmann amid the DFB’s pursuit of the former Bayern Munich manager.
Germany, who had begun its search for the next Bundestrainer after dismissing Hansi Flick in the wake of Die Mannschaft’s shock 4-1 loss against Japan in Wolfsburg, was immediately linked with a possible move for Nagelsmann after Bayern parted ways with the former RB Leipzig and TSG 1899 Hoffenheim prodigy last season.
According to BILD’s Tobi Altschäffl, Bayern are fully prepared to allow Nagelsmann to take up the Germany post without demanding financial compensation from the DFB, as long as their conditions were met.
Per the report, “Bayern would release Nagelsmann on two conditions: 1- the DFB has to fulfill the friendly game which was agreed when Flick left Bayern to join them. 2- the DFB has to cover Nagelsmann’s full salary.”
Should the DFB agree, negotiations with Nagelsmann are sure to begin in earnest with Euro2024 less than a year away and Germany still struggling to rediscover its form and identity that remains in question since their shock exit in the group stage of the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
