Bayern Munich have confirmed Julian Nagelsmann will become their new manager next season.
Nagelsmann took RB Leipzig to last season’s Champions League semi-finals and they are on course to finish second behind Bayern in the Bundesliga this campaign.
Nagelsmann will succeed Hansi Flick, who last week asked Bayern to terminate his contract at the end of the season after several disagreements with sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic.
At 33, Nagelsmann is one of the most highly-rated young managers in Europe and led Leipzig to its first ever UEFA Champions League last four in 2020.
“Julian Nagelsmann stands for a new generation of trainers,” said Bayern president Herbert Hainer.
The German will reportedly cost Bayern more than £20m in compensation.
Flick has been heavily linked with the Germany national team job with Joachim Low set to quit after this summer’s European Championship.
