Niko Kovač will be announced as the new Bayern Munich head coach, as first reported by the reliable Christian Falk of Sport Bild.
The Bundesliga champions will pay Eintracht Frankfurt a compensation fee of €2.2 million, per Kicker, as their search for Jupp Heynckes’ successor comes to an end.
Kovač already has a working relationship with Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidžić after a playing spell with Bayern between 2001 and 2003.
Thomas Tuchel was thought to be a favourite but the now PSG bound manager ruled himself out of the job. Other names included Lucien Favre and Julian Nagelsmann.
