Thomas Tuchel has responded to links about his future with the Bayern Munich manager on INEOS’ list for Manchester United should Erik ten Hag leave.

According to a new report from The Times, Thomas Tuchel is now on Sir Jim Ratcliffe‘s list to replace Erik ten Hag this summer should they decide to sack the Manchester United manager.

Ten Hag’s job has been a media topic for almost a year, with poor performances across the campaign leading to angry fans.

Tuchel will leave Bayern Munich at the end of the season after the club failed to win the league title for the first time in 11 seasons and is reportedly very much interested in the job.

What Tuchel said

However, the German manager dismissed rumours when asked about his future. He claimed that it is not a priority considering their current 2-2 draw against Real Madrid, with the second leg in Spain yet to come.

“Even though this topic is good for me when [the fans] wish you to stay, it’s not something that is a priority,” he said following the club’s 2-2 draw with Madrid. “It isn’t allowed to be a priority.

“In the next 11 days, it’s only about football, nothing else. Whether it’s pleasant or unpleasant, I don’t allow myself to be influenced by it.”

Bayern’s replacement?

With Tuchel poised to leave in the coming summer, Bayern Munich is actively seeking a successor for the former Chelsea manager. However, their efforts have hit a snag as they’ve encountered three refusals thus far.

Xabi Alonso, Julian Nagelsmann, and Ralf Rangnick have all declined the opportunity to lead the prestigious German club, prompting Bayern’s attention to now focus on Erik ten Hag.

According to reports from Germany, Bayern Munich are now deliberating Ten Hag as a potential candidate to spearhead a new chapter in Munich.

Ten Hag boasts prior connections with Bayern Munich, having previously served as a coach for their secondary team from 2013 to 2015.
