Sport Nagelsmann not planning to leave RB Leipzig: There were and are no talks with Bayern
How Bayern Munich will adapt their attack to prevent PSG revenge
As European champions Bayern Munich and pretenders PSG prepare to do battle again just eight months after meeting in the Champions League final, the Parisians can sniff weakness.The fact that in modern times the same elite cluster of clubs almost always reach the final stages makes repeat encounters pretty much inevitable.
Julian Nagelsmann insists there have been no talks with Bayern Munich as he made clear his contract with RB Leipzig runs until 2023.
Hansi Flick has been hugely successful since taking charge at Bayern, but a strained relationship with sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic has led to speculation over his future beyond the current campaign.
Amid links to the upcoming vacancy with the Germany national team, Flick cryptically said after the Champions League exit to Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday: "I have a contract with Bayern but you always have thoughts about how the future looks and if everything is working wonderfully here."
Julien Nagelsmann insists 'there are no talks' with Bayern Munich
German legend Matthaus told Sky in Germany that he expected Flick to succeed Low after the European Championships this summer before revealing that Nagelsmann is Bayern's top candidate.Bayern boss Hans Dieter-Flick has been linked with the Germany vacancy with current boss Joachim Low leaving the international side after 15 years at the helm.
Lothar Matthaus claimed while working for Sky Deutschland's coverage of the Champions League second leg that Bayern had already "talked a bit" to Nagelsmann about taking over, should Flick leave his current post.
However, speaking to the media on Wednesday, the Leipzig boss denied having held any such conversations with the reigning Bundesliga champions.
"There were and are no talks with Bayern. I have no idea where Lothar got this information from. This of course also applies to my advisors, there were also no talks," Nagelsmann said.

"Lit from the outside!" This Bayern rumor annoys Effenberg
in the new episode of the Sport1 podcast "My Bayern Week" Stefan Effenberg not only takes on the FCB for breast. The rumors around Julian Nagelsmann bring him in Rage. © deployed by sport1.de "lit from the outside!" This Bayern rumor annoys Effenberg plain text from the "Tiger"! in the new Sport1 Podcast "My Bayern Week" (appears this Friday) This time Stefan Effenberg is a guest.
Nagelsmann was speaking to preview second-placed Leipzig’s home game against his former employers Hoffenheim on Friday.
The game offers the hosts a chance to increase the pressure on table-topping Bayern in the title race; the gap stands at five points with six games to play in the season.
"We still need eight points for this to be the most successful season in the club’s history," Nagelsmann said ahead of the run-in.
"We have to win our games – it is that simple. We are focusing only on ourselves in order to get as many points as we can. Then we will see whether Bayern stumble or not. Normally, it wouldn't happen.
"If we finish in second then it was still an outstanding season.
"We still have room to develop as a team and we have had a really consistent season even though we have so many young players in our ranks. We have been good, you've seen that already. If we can now go from good to great then we would be more than happy."
