After some protracted negotiations, FC Bayern München head-coach Thomas Tuchel appears set to get his sought-after assistant coach. Germany's Kicker magazine reports that the German giants and Chelsea FC have come to an agreement on a transfer fee for Anthony Barry. The 36-year-old Englishman will, per Kicker, join Tuchel's coaching team with an emphasis on the set-piece department.

It remains unclear at this point how much money the FCB will have to shell out in order to bring Barry to the Säbener Straße. Chelsea were reported to have rejected an initial bid for their trainer and as recently as last week, Bayern boss Hasan Salihamidzic remarked that talks were at a standstill. Kicker cites the Britain's "The Times" paper as the source of the initial report.
