RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann has insisted that he has not held any discussions about the prospect of him becoming the next Bayern Munich manager. Tottenham Hotspur are keen on securing the services of the manager, who is considered as one of the most highly-rated young and upcoming coaches in European football.

Spurs, according to numerous reports in the national media in recent weeks, are said to be considering a move for Nagelsmann if they decide to pull the trigger on Jose Mourinho. Mourinho is under growing pressure at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

However, Nagelsmann has played down the prospect of leaving Leipzig anytime soon, particularly as far as the job at Bayern is concerned.

“There were no talks and there are no talks between me and Bayern Munich,” explained Nagelsmann. ” [It is the] same for my agents.”

Although Nagelsmann, who is under contract at Leipzig until the summer of 2023, has played down the prospect of taking over at Bayern, he has previously hinted that he could one day make the move to the Premier League.

“I have a contract now until 2023 so I think I will stay in Leipzig,” said Nagelsmann in an interview with the Telegraph back in February. “The Premier League is a very interesting league and I can imagine it could be a big aim to be a big manager in the Premier League one day like [Liverpool boss] Jurgen [Klopp] who is very successful. It could be a step in the future.”
