Bayern Munich prefer Kompany to replace Tuchel

Report from Germany reveals that Bayern Munich might have settled for Burnley coach Vincent Kompany as their next coach.

Kompany, former player is believed to have been given a three-year contract which kicks off this summer.

At 38, Kompany would reportedly take his Clarets backroom staff with him to Munich, including former Wales international Craig Bellamy.
Kompany has built a decent reputation in his time at Anderlecht and Burnley, although the Clarets’ relegation following lofty pre-season expectations has not reflected well on the Belgian who speaks German, having played in the Bundesliga for Hamburg.

Kompany signed a five-year contract extension at Burnley in 2023 but refused to answer questions about his future after Sunday’s home defeat by Nottingham Forest.

Kompany, a four-time Premier League winner as a player with Manchester City, became Burnley manager in June 2022 in his first managerial role in England, having previously been in charge of Anderlecht.

Bayern have struggled to find a replacement for Thomas Tuchel, whose exit was confirmed last week after initially being announced in February.

Bayer Leverkusen boss Xabi Alonso, Germany chief Julian Nagelsmann and current Austria coach Ralf Rangnick have all turned down the job.

Talks about persuading Tuchel to stay on failed to reach a positive conclusion, leaving Bayern with a problem.

Already, Bayern have their eyes on a shock swoop for Jack Grealish from Manchester City.

Grealish, 28, played just over 1000 minutes of Premier League football for City as they won a historic fourth successive title, starting just ten games.

He featured more regularly in the Champions League, starting both matches in the quarter-final defeat against Real Madrid.

In total, Grealish scored just three goals and added three assists in 36 appearances in all competitions.
