Bayern Munich Reaches Principle Agreement with Kompany.

Vincent Kompany, the manager of Burnley, has reached a preliminary agreement to take over as the new coach of Bayern Munich.

Bayern Munich pursued Vincent Kompany after facing several rejections in their search for a new coach to succeed Thomas Tuchel. Kompany has reportedly agreed to a deal until 2027, with Bayern compensating Burnley with £10.2 million.

While Kompany's assistant Craig Bellamy won't join him at the Allianz Arena, Floribert Ngalula and Bram Geers will form part of his coaching staff.

Previously, Bayern considered Xabi Alonso from Bayer Leverkusen, former manager Julian Nagelsmann, currently with Germany, and Austria's coach Ralf Rangnick. All three declined the opportunity.

Although talks with Tuchel in May didn't lead to an agreement, Bayern turned to Kompany, who has earned a solid reputation at Anderlecht and Burnley. 

As a four-time Premier League champion with Manchester City, Kompany transitioned into coaching, first as player-manager at Anderlecht before joining Burnley.
