Thomas Tuchel wants to return to the Premier League, Manchester United a club he always had interest in managing

The job of Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag could be under huge threat in the coming months given the managerial merry-go-round expected this summer.

Bayern Munich boss Thomas Tuchel is leaving the Bundesliga club at the end of the season and is keen to return to the Premier League.

According to SportBild journalist Christian Falk, the former Chelsea manager is open to working in the English top-flight again and has always dreamt of being in the Man United dugout.

The Red Devils co-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe wants to give Ten Hag a chance to prove himself and is expected to retain his services beyond this summer.

Finishing in the top-four will boost the chances of the Dutchman as far as remaining in Old Trafford goes, but could the British billionaire be tempted to give Tuchel a look?

Bayern are likely to end this season without the Bundesliga title for the first time since 2011-12, and a trophyless campaign appears to be on the cards after some underwhelming performances across other competitions too.

However, Tuchel proved himself at Chelsea, winning the Champions League in 2021 after leading Paris Saint-Germain to the final in 2020, and Man United could do with such a manager capable of getting the results under the right circumstances.

The Red Devils have not won the Premier League title since 2013 and last won the Champions League in 2008, and Ten Hag does not look like the one to take them to the next level.

Many would argue that Tuchel cannot do better than the former Ajax boss given the current state of the Man United squad, but he did magic with Chelsea and is capable of replicating it with a new-look Red Devils expected this summer.

The German could be the answer if Ratcliffe wants an experienced man who could just be a short-term solution, and Ten Hag will most likely be fearing for his future right now given how things have been going on the managerial front in Europe.
