Kompany consents to deal to replace Tuchel at Bayern Munich 

Kompany consents to deal to replace Tuchel at Bayern Munich�

Burnley manager Vincent Kompany has agreed to a deal in principle to become the new Bayern Munich coach to replace Thomas Tuchel, according to various reports monitored on Saturday.

The German club settled for former Manchester City captain Kompany who once had a stint in the German Bundesliga after a series of rejections in their search for a successor to Thomas Tuchel.

It is understood Kompany has agreed to a deal until 2027, with Bayern set to pay Burnley £10.2m in compensation after a series of talks with the Championship side.

Craig Bellamy, Kompany's assistant at Burnley, will not accompany the Belgian to the Allianz Arena but Floribert Ngalula and Bram Geers will form part of his backroom staff.

Bayern had targeted Bayer Leverkusen boss Xabi Alonso, their former manager Julian Nagelsmann, who is currently at the helm of Germany, and Austria coach Ralf Rangnick following their decision to part with Tuchel but the trio all rejected the job.

Tuchel held talks with Bayern earlier in May about remaining at the club, but they ended without an agreement.

Bayern were keen to appoint a German-speaking coach and 38-year-old Kompany ticks that box, having played for Hamburg for two years during his playing career.
