Report explains what Nagelsmann has told Spurs about managerial vacancy 

The Daily Mail have revealed that Julian Nagelsmann has informed Tottenham that he wants time out of the game before returning to management ahead of the start of next season.

Some outlets in Germany reported last week that Nagelsmann had turned down Tottenham’s approach (SportBild) but The Mirror subsequently revealed that Spurs had ‘poured scorn’ over those suggestions, with the Lilywhites said to be keen on making a big statement with their managerial hire.

The Times reported on Sunday that Chelsea had held a face-to-face meeting with the recently departed Bayern Munich boss over replacing Graham Potter.

The report added that Nagelsmann is also interested in the ‘expected vacancy’ at Real Madrid in the summer while he might have an eye on the Paris Saint-Germain job, which could soon open up.

The Mail have now explained that when the Lilywhites did reach out to the German about taking over at the club ‘immediately’, he informed them that he wants some time out of the game after leaving the Allianz Arena.

The publication asserts that while ‘there is a feeling’ that Nagelsmann might prefer a move to Stamford Bridge, qualifying for the Champions League could prove a ‘factor’ in potentially attracting the 35-year-old to Spurs.

Spurs Web Opinion

It seems fairly clear that the reason both Spurs and Chelsea have appointed interim head coaches to see them through until the end of the season is that Nagelsmann is their top target and the German is not keen on taking any new job until the summer.
