​RB Leipzig boss Nagelsmann denies talks held with Bayern Munich

RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann has denied speculation linking him with a move to Bayern Munich.

The young coach is sought after by many clubs, including Tottenham in the Premier League, per media reports in Europe over the past few months.

Given Bayern boss Hansi Flick is being linked to the German national team, where he would replace departing Joachim Low, Nageslmann is reportedly a target for Bayern to replace Flick.

The 33-year-old has been with Leipzig since 2019, and helped them progress to the Champions League semi finals last season.

While other clubs may want to sign him for next term, Nagelsmann may prefer to develop his coaching in a less pressurised environment for one or two more seasons.

"There were no talks and there are no talks between me and Bayern Munich. Same for my agents," the Leipzig head coach told a press conference.
