After many rejections, FC Bayern seems to have found a willing candidate for the position of head coach. The record champions are said to have reached an agreement with Vincent Kompany. Transfer negotiations with relegated FC Burnley are also well advanced.

It has been going on since February, but now FC Bayern Munich’s search for a coach, which has been going on for months, is almost over. The German record champions are said to be on the verge of signing Vincent Kompany. The deal could be completed by the end of the week. This is reported by the English newspaper “The Guardian”.

The “Bild” newspaper confirmed the report and also reported an oral agreement with the former Belgian international, who also played for Hamburger SV in the Bundesliga. In addition, discussions with the owner of Burnley FC, Alan Pace, are already well advanced. On Wednesday there were said to be discussions about the amount of the transfer fee for Kompany, who has been coaching the Premier League relegated team since the summer of 2022.

Kompany does not have the best sporting record. The 38-year-old managed to secure a comfortable promotion to the Premier League with Burnley last summer, but they were immediately relegated. With 24 points from 38 games, Burnley finished second to last in what was supposedly the best league in the world. In the end, they were eight points away from survival. However, Kompany received a lot of praise for the way Burnley played.

The former defender began his coaching career at RSC Anderlecht. He led the struggling Belgian record champions to third place twice, then moved to Burnley after two years.

Unusually many cancellations for FC Bayern

For Bayern, the signing would mark the end of a long search that the public could follow in detail. After the separation from Thomas Tuchel at the end of the season, which was announced in February, Leverkusen coach Xabi Alonso, national coach Julian Nagelsmann and Austrian national coach Ralf Rangnick canceled. A commitment from ex-Frankfurt coach Oliver Glasner also did not materialize. Roger Schmidt from Benfica Lisbon also opted out, and efforts to keep Tuchel on the job had recently failed.

This would allow sporting director Max Eberl to close the most important construction site shortly after the end of the season, which saw Bayern finish without a title and only third in the Bundesliga. There would also be enough time to take Kompany’s ideas into account when looking for new signings.
