Bayern Munich is not going to get Vincent Kompany without a fight. Various English and German media speak of negotiations that are gaining momentum, but the price tag for the Belgian coach is considerable.

Although Bayern is not yet in discussions with Burnley, reports are already filtering through about the buyout payment that the Premier League relegant wants to receive. This is said to be around 23.5 million euros.

BILD writes that Bayern is not prepared to go further than ten million euros. It is expected that both clubs will agree somewhere between the two amounts. So far, Bayern only spoke to Kompany about a possible transfer.

It is not the first time that Bayern has had to pay a large sum for a new coach. Three years ago counted der Rekordmeister pay no less than twenty million euros to free Julian Nagelsmann from RB Leipzig.

Christian Falk reported on Wednesday evening that Bayern had reached a verbal agreement with Kompany. Since the Belgian still has a contract with Burnley until mid-2028, the number three in the Bundesliga must also reach an agreement with his current employer.

It is expected that Kompany will mainly bring his own coaching staff to the Allianz Arena, which means that Burnley will have to look for new people ultimately responsible. The Clarets finished penultimate in the Premier League this season.

Kompany has been the manager of Burnley since the summer of 2022, with whom he was immediately promoted to the Premier League in his first season. English media claim that he gave his 'yes' word within five minutes of Bayern's phone call.
