This is reported by both English and German media. The aim is to have an agreement between Burnley and Bayern by the end of the week, after Bayern has already reached an agreement with Kompany on a multi-year contract. Burnley is demanding a substantial buyout fee, which the clubs are now negotiating.

Bayern's choice of Kompany is quite surprising. The 38-year-old Belgian has only been a head coach at Anderlecht and Burnley, with whom he was relegated from the Premier League. Despite this, Bayern is confident that his working methods suit a top-tier club. Kompany's approach to coaching, which emphasizes tactical discipline and player development, has impressed the Bayern management. They believe that his philosophy aligns well with the club's long-term vision.

However, Kompany was not Bayern's first choice. After the club faced multiple rejections, the Belgian came into consideration. Following Thomas Tuchel's announcement of his departure, Bayern pursued several high-profile candidates. Xabi Alonso, Hansi Flick, Roger Schmidt, Ralf Rangnick, Oliver Glasner, Erik ten Hag, and once again Tuchel were all approached by Bayern, but each time the club received a 'no'. These rejections have been a significant setback for Bayern, who have been eager to secure a coach with a proven track record at the highest levels of European football.

Despite these challenges, Bayern's decision to move forward with Kompany indicates their belief in his potential. His playing career, which included successful stints at Manchester City and the Belgian national team, has provided him with a wealth of experience and a deep understanding of the game. This background, combined with his early coaching experiences, has convinced Bayern that he can lead the team effectively.

As negotiations continue, the focus will be on finalizing the financial aspects of the deal. Burnley is holding out for a significant compensation package, reflecting Kompany's importance to the club and their reluctance to let him go. Bayern, on the other hand, is determined to secure their new coach and start preparing for the upcoming season with renewed focus and energy.

The coming days will be crucial in determining whether Kompany will take the helm at Bayern Munich, marking a new chapter in his coaching career and a bold move for the German giants. If the deal goes through, it will be interesting to see how Kompany adapts to the pressures and expectations of managing one of the world's most prestigious football clubs.
