The United States is very close to having a new representative in the Bundesliga, because after it became known that Julian Nagelsmann will become Bayern Munich's new coach, Jesse Marsch is emerging as the main candidate and there is even talk of an agreement in principle to take the reins of RB Leipzig, after having refused to direct Tottenham of the Premier League.
Kicker announced this Wednesday, that already there is an agreement between the German team and the American strategist, to become its new technical director from next season and return to Leipzig, having been technical assistant before his presentation with RB Salzburg, the 'brother' club of the German team and where Marsch could say goodbye as two-time champion of the Austrian Bundesliga.
Similarly, it was announced that Marsch turned down an offer to coach Tottenham and become the new manager of the English team, after the departure of José Mourinho, so everything is practically ready for the American to be presented as RB Leipzig's coach and continue the legacy left by Julian Nagelsmann.
2 / Some details still emerging from other sources. Kicker say Marsch turned down Tottenham in favor of RBL. He was also of interest to Eintracht Frankfurt.

Marsch won the race in Leipzig
The American coach, who was trained in MLS, will become the new coach of the German team, who valued a couple of more options and finally he opted for Marsch, despite also looking at technicians such as Oliver Glasner from Wolfsburg, Pellegrino Matarazzo from Stuttgart or Erik ten Hag of Ajax.
Marsch's course could change
Returning to Leipzig was not the only option that the American coach had for the next season, since Jesse Marsch's name also appeared on the table of Borussia Mönchengladbach and Eintracht FrankfurtHowever, his destination will be Leipzig, after two seasons with RB Salzburg.
After his time in MLS and as a Leipzig assistant, Marsch has a couple of titles with RB Salzburg, where he has a record of 59 wins, 12 draws and 17 losses in 88 games at the helm of the Austrian team, with whom he is once again at the top of the league and could say goodbye with a new title.
