Bayern, Chelsea disagree over compensation for versatile assistant coach Barry



The Bavarian giants have approached the Blues about luring assistant coach Anthony Barry after Thomas Tuchel expressed an interest in bringing him into his new backroom staff.
Chelsea and Bayern Munich remain have not reached an agreement over compensation for Anthony Barry to join Thomas Tuchel at Munich as an assistant manager.

Chelsea have made their position and expectations clear to Bayern for Barry to be released from his contract, and nothing has yet been agreed between the clubs.

But amid the controversy, Barry and Chelsea have agreed that he will not attend Cobham until the situation is resolved amicably.

Chelsea have a list of potential replacements should he eventually leave for the Bundesliga champions.

The Chelsea players return to training on Tuesday following international duty ahead of their clash with Aston Villa on Saturday at Stamford Bridge.

Barry is a highly thought-of coach who has also worked with Robert Martinez and the Belgium national team, the Republic of Ireland team under Stephen Kenny, and Paul Cook at Wigan Athletic before joining Chelsea in 2020.
