Ex-Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, sees the Man United job as his number one ambition at this point in time.

Pressure is growing on Erik ten Hag. His Manchester United side have only lost a couple of games this calendar year, but that’s just the nature of the business at this elite level.

Factor in that Ten Hag was not appointed by INEOS and there’s a genuine case to be made that the Dutchman may be out of a job this summer. I honestly wouldn’t be surprised, although I personally would give him at least another year.

Typically, the media is jumping all over the potential exit rumours. They’re already linking several manager’s with taking the job – including Gareth Southgate…

Now, journalist Christian Falk has shared his latest information, claiming that Thomas Tuchel would like to take over at Old Trafford.

He says that the ex-Chelsea manager sets the United job as his ‘primary goal’ amid the growing pressure on Ten Hag. The German can also ‘imagine’ returning to Chelsea, though you get the impression he’d much prefer a move to the biggest club in the country.

Tuchel is an interesting one. It feels like his managerial career so far has been incredibly hit and miss, while taking charge of several elite level teams.

His best success has come over in Germany, while it’s no secret that he did struggle at Chelsea, albeit with very limited time to make a positive impression.

I honestly see this as a sideward step at the very best. On top of that, United would be hitting the reset button once again, with the club right back at square one despite two seasons of Ten Hag trying to build something.
