Bayern Munich are set to complete a move for Middlesbrough coach Aaron Danks and add him to Vincent Kompany’s backroom team.

That’s according to BILD, who say the German giants are close to making Danks their new assistant manager.

The newspaper reports that Kompany is set to secure his first transfer as Bayern Munich manager as he builds his team ahead of his first season in charge.

According to their information, Danks will be arriving from Middlesbrough in due course to take up the role of assistant manager.

He will be the final piece in the puzzle for Kompany, who has been building his coaching team since he arrived at the German club.

That will include his ‘confidants’ Floribert Ngalula and Bram Geers, both of whom he has worked with previously.

The same can be said of Danks, who was briefly Kompany’s assistant manager at Anderlecht before moving to join Steven Gerrard at Aston Villa. He then moved to Middlesbrough in December 2022.

He’s now set for a move to Munich to reunite with Kompany and will officially start his new role when Bayern return to training on July 15th, although training ground work won’t start until two days later.

Either way, there is excitement about his arrival, with BILD even going as far as to label him something of a specialist when it comes to former players turned managers.

They point out that alongside Kompany he’s also worked with Gerrard at Villa and Michael Carrick at Middlesbrough, all of whom ‘still have little experience in the coaching business’.

They seem to be pleased that an experienced man will be joining the Belgian coach as he looks to win over fans quickly and prove the step up from Burnley isn’t too great.
