Thomas Tuchel is staring at an uncertain future with Chelsea following the unprecedented situation at Stamford Bridge
Man United are said to be keen to use the crisis the Blues are facing to convince Tuchel to move to Old Trafford
The Red Devils are hunting for an experienced manager to take charge at the end of the season when Ralf Rangnick steps down
Man United have reportedly made Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel their new No.1 target to become the club’s permanent manager.
Ralf Rangnick, who took charge of the club on an interim basis in December 2021 after the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is expected to step down at the end of the ongoing season.
United have continually been linked with a move for Paris Saint-Germain manager, Mauricio Pochettino, with Ajax’s Erik ten Hag also believed to be in the run for the Old Trafford role.
However, there could be a twist in United’s hunt for their next manager, with reports suggesting the club have shortlisted Tuchel for the job.
According to Metro UK, the Red Devils are looking to capitalise on the crisis that has rocked Chelsea in recent days to convince the German to move to Manchester.

United chiefs are said to have been impressed at the way the ex-PSG boss has handled himself in the wake of Chelsea’s unprecedented situation.
While convincing Tuchel to switch allegiance would be a hard nut to crack, Mirror UK claims a generous compensation package for both the tactician and Chelsea would be hard for the cash-strapped west London club to turn down.
