Bayern Munich’s coaching saga: Nagelsmann stays with Germany, search for Tuchel’s replacement continues

In a surprising turn of events, Julian Nagelsmann has decided to extend his contract with the German Football Association (DFB), putting an end to speculation about his potential return to Bayern Munich as a replacement for Thomas Tuchel.

Nagelsmann’s decision to remain with the national team leaves Bayern Munich scrambling for a new coach, with several high-profile names still in the running. While Xavi has reportedly declined an offer from Barcelona, the Bavarians are still considering Roberto De Zerbi and Ralf Rangnick as potential successors to Tuchel.

Despite initial reports suggesting a potential return to Bayern Munich, Nagelsmann has opted to remain with the DFB, extending his contract until the conclusion of the 2026 FIFA World Cup. The 36-year-old’s decision to stay with the national team comes as a blow to Bayern Munich, who had reportedly been in negotiations with Nagelsmann’s agency.

Bayern’s Coaching Search Continues

With Nagelsmann out of the picture, Bayern Munich’s search for a new coach continues. Roberto De Zerbi, the current manager of Sassuolo, and Ralf Rangnick, the experienced Austrian tactician, remain the frontrunners for the job.

De Zerbi, known for his attacking style of play, has impressed with his work at Sassuolo, guiding the club to a ninth-place finish in Serie A last season. Rangnick, on the other hand, brings a wealth of experience to the table, having managed clubs like RB Leipzig, Schalke 04, and Manchester United.

Bayern Munich is expected to make a decision on their new coach by the end of the month. With the Bundesliga season set to resume in early August, the club will need to act quickly to secure their preferred candidate.
