RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann will join Bayern Munich on a five-year contract at the end of this season, the German champions have announced.
At 33, Nagelsmann is one of the most highly-rated young managers in Europe and led Leipzig to a Champions League semi-final last year.
“Julian Nagelsmann stands for a new generation of trainers,” said Bayern president Herbert Hainer.
The German will reportedly cost Bayern more than Â£20m in compensation.
Flick has been heavily linked with the Germany national team job with Joachim Low set to quit after this summer’s European Championship.
