Bayern boss Hainer on Nagelsmann fee: ‘Don’t believe all figures’

Bayern Munich president Herbert Hainer has suggested the reportedly massive transfer fee the club paid to sign RB Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann isn’t all correct.

“Don’t believe all the figures that have been circulating,” Hainer told an interview with the newspaper Abendzeitung on Friday.

“We had to find an agreement with RB Leipzig because Julian Nagelsmann still had a contract there,” he said.

Reports on the transfer fee range from 15 million euros (18.15 million dollars) to 30 million euros, which makes Nagelsmann the most expensive coach in the Bundesliga’s history.

“Bayern is one of the best teams in Europe, and also need a top coach. We have accomplished this with the signing of Julian Nagelsmann,” Hainer said.

Nagelsmann will get a five-year contract and replace treble winning coach Hansi Flick, who will have his contract terminated in summer.

Flick is a strong candidate to take the Germany job once coach Joachim Loew steps down after the Euro 2020.
