Bayern hired Nagelsmann away from RB Leipzig in April 2021 to replace the outgoing Hansi Flick and he led them to a 10th Bundesliga title in a row last season.

Despite having reached the quarterfinals of the Champions League this season, Bayern are struggling by their standards in domestic competition, trailing Tuchel’s former team Borussia Dortmund by a point in the standings and just four ahead of third-place Union Berlin.
