Max Eberl to join Bayern Munich as new board member

Sky Germany reports that Max Eberl is set to join Bayern Munich as a new board member after leaving RB Leipzig earlier in the season

The former Leipzig and Borussia Mönchengladbach sporting director will sign a long-term contract at the club and is expected to start no later than March. The supervisory board will confirm Eberl’s appointment at their next meeting which is set to take place in February. 

Eberl is also expected to cost Bayern around less than €5m in a transfer fee from Leipzig as he still has time left on his contract with his previous employers. Despite Leipzig having to fire Eberl prematurely the relationship between Bayern and Leipzig has not taken a hit. 

Liverpool had previously been linked with Eberl to fill their vacant sporting director role. Still, the former Leipzig man always had his eyes set on a move to Bayern as the 50-year-old is from the area whilst he also came through Bayern’s youth academy before departing for Bochum in 1994.
