Ex-Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann ahead of coaching job at Paris Saint-Germain
FC Bayern have secured a title in the final spurt of the season with the last-minute championship. Julian Nagelsmann, who was on course for the treble until his release in mid-March, initially had no reaction.
The reason is obvious: The 35-year-old is negotiating with a new club and does not want to compete against his former club. Nagelsmann's new employer would first have to agree with FC Bayern on a termination of the contract and possibly pay a high transfer fee.

Nagelsmann has apparently been in contact with PSG for several weeks
Julian Nagelsmann has now apparently found a new club and is to become coach at Paris Saint-Germain. This is reported by the French media Foot Mercato and L'Équipe. The newly crowned champion sees the German as the ideal successor to Christophe Galtier.
Recently, the names of José Mourinho or Luis Enrique have also been circulating on the Seine, but Nagelsmann seems to be the favorite. The 35-year-old and PSG have apparently been in contact for several weeks, and negotiations are even close to completion, according to L'Équipe.
Nagelsmann knocked PSG out of the Champions League with FC Bayern
It was only at the beginning of March that Nagelsmann eliminated his possible future club in the Champions League round of 0 with Bayern. PSG were defeated in both games, losing 1-0 and 2-<>. For the Qatari Sheikh Club, Nagelsmann's performance was apparently the perfect letter of application.
Curiously, Nagelsmann would become one of the successors in Paris to Thomas Tuchel, who replaced him a few weeks ago at FC Bayern. Tuchel, who stepped up to Nagelsmann, coached PSG from the summer of 2018 to the end of 2020. The eleven-time French champions are facing an upheaval due to the confirmed farewell to Lionel Messi and the possible transfer of Neymar.
Ex-Bayern coach Nagelsmann is considered a favourite at PSG – France legend as assistant
In addition to Nagelsmann, the former world-class attacker Thierry Henry is also expected to help shape it as an assistant. The 1998 French World Cup winner is currently without a job after his long-standing role as assistant coach of the Belgian national team, working as a TV pundit in England. Nagelsmann's former assistants Dino Toppmöller and Xaver Zembrod as co-are about to commit to Eintracht Frankfurt, even if sporting director Markus Krösche remained steadfast against Sky reporter Wasserziehr.
