Vincent Kompany took ‘just a few minutes’ to accept the Bayern Munich job, causing the German club to push to get him from Burnley this week.

That’s according to SportBILD, who go into detail about the process and the Burnley manager’s impending move today.

They explain that after those in charge at the club had decided to try and lure Kompany from Burnley amid their protracted managerial search this summer, Max Eberl and Christoph Freund set off to get their man.

They had already held video calls with the Burnley manager but then decided to meet him in person, as well as those in charge at Turf Moor, to get a deal over the line.

They had made it clear that anyone they approached now had to accept the job quickly and Kompany did just that, accepting the role ‘after just a few minutes’.

That led Bayern to push the talks with Burnley along, wanting those resolved quickly too after negative experiences in recent weeks, particularly with Crystal Palace when they targeted Oliver Glasner.

He was valued at €100m by the Eagles but Kompany will be ‘significantly cheaper’ after decisive talks with Burnley ended in a €10.5m agreement for the Belgian coach. That figure was presented to Bayern’s supervisory board on Sunday and has seemingly been accepted.

The insistence now is that Kompany had been on the list from the start but was only explored after several rejections from other candidates. After that, they ‘voted unanimously’ for the Burnley manager and pushed to get him.

Three factors have worked in his favour, his history under Pep Guardiola, the fact he is a manager who has often backed his players in public and his apparent tough stance behind the scenes, with was noted at Anderlecht and picked up on by Bayern.

The appointment is now set to be confirmed, with a deal in place with Burnley after Kompany seemingly took less than five minutes to decide he wanted the move.
