According to the trusty Christian Falk of Bild, the speculation linking Thomas Tuchel to the Manchester United job is very “true”, with interest on both sides.
Falk reports that the Red Devils are interested in the German as a possible replacement for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, while Tuchel is equally interested in managing the Manchester team in the future.
Tuchel has coached Paris Saint-Germain since the summer of 2018, the 47-year-old outscored Solskjaer in Wednesday night’s Champions League meeting between the two teams.
MailOnline’s note via Bild’s The latest edition of their Premier League shows that United are monitoring Tuchel as an option to replace Solskjaer, especially if they fail to make it out of their UCL group.
It may well be a very reasonable option for the Red Devils, as Bild’s report adds that Tuchel is likely to leave the Parisians when his contract expires at the end of the season.

It is also suggested that the former Mainz and Borussia Dortmund boss feels ready to lead in the Premier League, as United communicated with Tuchel in the past in his hot seat.
Tuchel has largely lived up to expectations at Parc des Princes by continuing the team’s national dominance and reaching the final of the Champions League last season.
With all due respect to the French top flight, if Tuchel really wants to prove himself and establish himself as one of the best coaches in the world, he will have to take a job in a much more competitive league.
