Burnley manager Vincent Kompany has reached an agreement with Bayern Munich to become the club’s new manager.

In what would be one of the biggest managerial leaps in football, the former Anderlecht boss and former Manchester City player is set for a move to Allianz Arena.

According to Sky Germany, Bayern Munich have reached agreement with Vincent Kompany and are now in talks with Burnley to seal the move.

Kompany is still contracted to Burnley till 2028 but is open to leaving Turf Moor if the club agrees on compensation with Bayern Munich.

Vincent Kompany’s managerial career was shot to the limelight after he guided Burney to promotion to the Premier League on his debut season, winning the second tier with a record 101 points.

However, his luck didn’t shine through in the English top-flight as the Clarets failed to beat the drop, finishing 19th on the Premier League table to return to the second tier.

While there has been much fuss as Bayern close in on a move for Kompany, the Belgian young manager has been credited for his abilities to develop young talents – a core trait Bayern Munich want in their next manager.

Sources close to the Bundesliga outfit reveal the club fell out with their recently-sacked manager, Thomas Tuchel, not only for poor results but for trying to ride on already-developed stars instead of nurturing new ones.

The desire for a thorough hand, great at managing young talents is still at the heart of the club’s search for a manager. And it is a trait they have found in Kompany despite his nascent coaching experience.

Before joining Burnley as manager, Kompany coached Anderlecht in the Belgian elite division and led the club to the Belgium Cup final.

He has managed only two clubs – Anderlecht and Burnley – in his managerial career and may likely face a tough task managing Bayern – one of the biggest Football Clubs in Europe.

However, the Belgian would hope to leverage his playing career with Hamburg in the Bundesliga as he prepares for the rollercoaster managerial leap.
