Tuchel wants to replace Ten Hag at Man Utd after ‘contact’


  • Thomas Tuchel is tempted to return to the Premier League with either Manchester United or Chelsea.
  • United have been in contact with the German manager recently, according to Sky Sports Germany.
  • The pressure continues to grow on Erik ten Hag following the 4-0 defeat to Crystal Palace on Monday.

Thomas Tuchel has been touted to make a Premier League return in the summer, with Sky Germany’s Florian Plettenberg reporting that Chelsea and Manchester United present “two appealing destinations” for the German manager, with United making contact already.

As Bayern Munich’s run of 11 straight years as Bundesliga Champions was brought to an end by Bayer Leverkusen‘s maiden title, Tuchel’s Die Roten negotiations looked to stagnate with United most likely to hire the cap-wearing coach.

Manchester United Job Tempting for Tuchel

Plettenberg reported via X on Monday that Tuchel was initially ready to carry on as Bayern boss and that talks were held. However, presumably faltering with domestic failure, the former Chelsea boss, who also sees Paris Saint-Germain and Borussia Dortmund on his resume, is now linked to a return to England’s top-flight.

Manchester United have reportedly kept in contact with Tuchel – who Chelsea star Ben Chilwell labelled an “unbelievable manager” – following previous speculation – and with Monday night’s 4-0 drubbing to Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park, Erik ten Hag’s reign has been put under even more scrutiny.
