RB Leipzig only wants to terminate the contract with the released manager Max Eberl by paying a transfer fee. According to dpa information, the Saxons are demanding around five million euros if the 50-year-old wants to work for a new club.

RB and Eberl have agreed on this. The path to FC Bayern would then be clear for Eberl, and he could work for the record champions from December. Sky reported it first. According to the broadcaster, there have not yet been any concrete negotiations between Eberl and Bayern.

Bayern’s sports director Christoph Freund remained tight-lipped about a possible future collaboration with Eberl. “That’s not my decision,” answered the 45-year-old Austrian before the German soccer champions’ departure for the Champions League game at FC Copenhagen when asked whether he could imagine forming a sporting dual leadership team with Eberl.

Eberl was released by the Leipzig bosses last Friday. Those responsible accused the former Borussia M├Ânchengladbach official of lacking commitment to the club. It is no secret that Eberl has long been considered the preferred candidate of Bavaria’s honorary president Uli Hoene├č. As a player, he went through the entire youth ranks at FC Bayern and played a Bundesliga game for the Munich team in 1991.
