The German Football Association (DFB) should get a deal done with Hansi Flick before it's too late, according to Bayern München chief Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

Bayern München CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has urged the German Football Association (DFB) to reach an agreement with Hansi Flick as soon as possible.

Flick, who is leaving Bayern München this summer, has been lined up as Joachim Löw's successor as Germany coach, but no final agreement has been reached yet.

According to Rummenigge, the DFB would be wise to speed up their pursuit of the 56-year-old before he gets snapped up by someone else.

"Hansi is in great demand in whole Europe. It would cause a stir if he went abroad or somewhere else and didn't end up at the German Football Association. He would be a perfect fit for the DFB," Rummenigge told Sky.

"You get the impression that they're waiting for something, but I wouldn't recommend that. Bringing in Flick to replace Löw would finally be a piece of good news for the DFB. I don't know what they're waiting for," the Bayern chief elaborated in an interview with Bild.
