The young tactician is understood to be at the top of Bayern’s list of potential targets as a successor to their all-conquering manager.

RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann has yet again denied holding talks with Bayern Munich over becoming their next manager.

It was Hansi Flick’s decision to call time on his short Bayern managerial career that gave rise to talks of Nagelsmann being installed in the Bayern dugout.

Flick, meanwhile, who guided the Bavarians to a historic sextuple last season, is tipped to take the reins of the Germany national team from Joachim Low, who is set to leave his position after this summer’s European tournament.

33-year-old Nagelsmann earned plenty of plaudits for leading Leipzig to a second-place Bundesliga finish in 2019-20, and his team continues to put pressure on the German champions this term.

Many view him as the must suitable man to take over from the all-conquering coach, but the young tactician has reiterated he is yet to be contacted by Bayern.

“There are and were no discussions and no offer,” Nagelsmann asserted, as Goal reports.

“That’s why I don’t know what Bayern’s wish is. I have said I don’t want to start a war with my employers – that’s still the case.”
