Bayern Munich could spend an incredible R516 million in compensation to get their No. 1 managerial target out of his current contract.
It is believed German tactician Julian Nagelsmann is the man the Bavarians want to replace Hansi Flick in their hot seat next season.
Earlier this month, Flick, a treble-winning manager, caused a major stir when he said he would like his contract at Bayern to be terminated amid strong speculation linking him with the Germany role.
Since it became clear the Bundesliga champions will move forward without their current boss, Nagelsmann has been sounded out as the ideal replacement.
The 33-year-old RB Leipzig boss is considered among the best young managers in world football, with Tottenham Hotspur also linked with him following Jose Mourinho's sacking.
Luring Nagelsmann to the Allianz Arena might not be easy for the Bavarians, however, as Goal has reported that they would have to pay Leipzig £26 million (R516 million) to get him out of his contract.
Leipzig centre-back Dayot Upamecano has already signed a five-year contract with the German champions ahead of next season, while fellow defender Ibrahima Konate is believed to be closing in on a move to Liverpool.
