Bayern Munich have reached an agreement for Thomas Tuchel to become their next manager.
The former Chelsea boss, who was sacked by the Blues in September, will replace Julian Naglesmann in the hot-seat.
A full agreement was struck on Thursday night after intensive talks in the last 24 hours.
On Friday, Bayern are set to officially confirm that Nagelsmann has been sacked with immediate effect - as via BILD.
Tuchel will sign a two-and-a-half-year-contract with the German giants and will earn a salary similar to what he was earning at Chelsea.
