Erik ten Hag is on the list of possible replacements for Thomas Tuchel at Bayern Munich this summer, according to reports from Germany.

The future of Erik ten Hag as Manchester United‘s manager is currently up in the air. Sir Jim Ratcliffe and INEOS are undecided about retaining the Dutch manager for another season as they overhaul the club’s staff.

With disappointing showings in the Champions LeaguePremier League, and Carabao Cup this season, the FA Cup remains the club’s only chance for success in the 2023/24 campaign. As a result, many fans are calling for the manager to be sacked.

With his future unresolved, fans have been speculating on who could replace the Dutchman at Old Trafford this summer, with Thomas Tuchel a name that has popped up on many occasions.

Tuchel will leave Bayern Munich this season after the upper management at the Allianz Arena decided a change was needed after the club’s first season without a league title in 11 years.

Ten Hag to Bayern?

With Tuchel set to depart in the summer, Bayern Munich are searching for anyone who can replace the ex-Chelsea boss but have so far faced three rejections.

Xabi Alonso, Julian Nagelsmann, and Ralf Rangnick have all turned down the chance to manage the biggest German club, and their attention has now turned to Ten Hag.

According to German transfer journalist Christian Falk, Ten Hag is now “being discussed” by Bayern Munich as a manager they may choose to start a new era in Munich.

Ten Hag has previous ties with Bayern Munich, having worked there coaching their second team between 2013-15.

Tuchel wants no contact

Despite long-time links with United, Falk has further explained that the German manager “doesn’t want contact” with United until after their Champions League campaign is over.

Bayern Munich are currently drawing 2-2 after the first leg of their Champions League semi-final with Real Madrid, and Tucheld does not want to discuss potentially taking over United until after this has concluded.

That being said, Falk also confirmed that Tuchel is “still interested” in taking over at Old Trafford next season.
