According to a report from German publication Sport 1, RB Leipzig are likely to demand a significant payoff from any club wishing to take Julian Nagelsmann off their hands.
Reports indicate that Jose Mourinho’s days at Tottenham could be numbered and that Nagelsmann is at the top of the club’s wishlist to replace the Portuguese coach.
However, getting Nagelsmann could prove complicated for Spurs, with Bayern Munich also reportedly targetting the 33-year-old to replace Hansi Flick (Daily Mirror).
Sport 1 report that Nagelsmann is likely to be Bayern’s preferred choice to replace the 58-year-old. It is also alleged that Leipzig would not be willing to let Nageslmann leave without a fight, with the German coach’s contract running until the end of next season.
The report claims that the Bundesliga club would demand compensation of around €15m-€20m (£13m-£17.3m) for their head coach.

Given that Spurs might also need to give Mourinho a big pay-off if they sack him, perhaps Leipzig’s demands could put Tottenham off from pursuing Nagelsmann, particularly under the current financial climate.
