Thomas Tuchel top contender for the Manchester United job

Thomas Tuchel could emerge as the top contender to replace Erik ten Hag in the close season as Manchester United’s new manager.

According to Football Insider, Thomas Tuchel could emerge in the front of the queue to replace Erik ten Hag in the close season. Manchester United seem destined to make the change in the dugout. As the Dutchman continues to disappoint with his displays, the Red Devils could miss out on a top-four top-four finish.

Thomas Tuchel’s favourites to replace Ten Hag?

The Manchester United managerial merry-go-around could be the next saga in the media as they have concluded with the Liverpool one lately. Erik ten Hag’s job has come under tremendous pressure following a string of dreadful performances, more than the results, as the new hierarchy in INEOS aren’t convinced of the Dutchman’s style.

As per multiple reports, many contenders are already lined up, with Thomas Tuchel one of their targets. As per the story, the German is probably the favourite to take over the reins from Ten Hag and begin a new era under INEOS starting next season.

Tuchel is already on his way out of Bayern Munich despite fans’ pleas to the club to make him stay and continue with this squad. The 50-year-old manager’s decision seems irreversible, as he might still end the season with the Champions League crown, having progressed to the semifinals after beating Arsenal in the previous round.

Tuchel has been linked with a move back to the Premier League with West Ham, one of the clubs the media connected to him. However, he might love to take the reigns over at a big club like Manchester United, as the Old Trafford job is the only one currently available for the Big Six that will suit the 50-year-old manager.

Who are Manchester United’s other options

Plenty of reports have linked different managers to the Manchester United job, including Ruben Amorim. The Portuguese recently apologised for meeting with West Ham in London and may switch from Sporting CP in the summer.

Zinedine Zidane seems open to a move, but credible sources are suggesting the move for the Frenchman might not materialise. Others, like Edin Terzic, saw links recently, but Tuchel seems the perfect fit for a Manchester United club on paper.
