Manchester United 'make contact with Champions League-winning manager'

:Headline: Manchester United 'make contact with Champions League-winning manager':
Manchester United allegedly make contact with Thomas Tuchel's representatives regarding the potential appointment of the Bayern Munich head coach.

Manchester United allegedly hold an interest in appointing Bayern Munich head coach Thomas Tuchel as a replacement for Erik ten Hag.

With new minority Sir Jim Ratcliffe in control of footballing operations, a transitional period is expected at Old Trafford.

As well as numerous changes behind the scenes, alterations are anticipated with on-the-field matters with an array of additions and departures likely.

Speculation also persists that Ratcliffe could choose to part ways with Ten Hag, who is now highly unlikely to deliver Champions League football for 2024-25.

With the Premier League realistically not in a position to secure an extra spot in European football's premier competition, United must win their remaining six matches and hope that Villa do not prevail in any of their remaining four.

Reaching FA Cup final does little for Ten Hag's future

Progressing through to a second successive FA Cup final should have boosted Ten Hag's position, yet the manner of their success over Coventry City only had a negative impact.

United blew a three-goal lead against the Championship outfit, only survived a last-gasp exit through the tightest of offside calls and required a penalty shootout to set up another final against Manchester City.

While the Dutchman will be in the dugout for that Wembley showpiece, it appears highly unlikely that he will enter the final 12 months of his contract.

According to Kicker journalist Georg Holzner, who was writing on X, United have already made contact with the representatives of Tuchel.

Tuchel still expected to leave Bayern

Bayern have suffered their worst Bundesliga campaigns for over a decade, being powerless to prevent a relentless Bayer Leverkusen side winning the title.

Although Bayern trail the leaders by 14 points, Tuchel has spearheaded a Champions League campaign that has led to his side reaching the semi-finals.

Last week, Bayern completed a 3-2 aggregate win over Arsenal in the last eight, setting up a clash with Real Madrid, and that was followed by a thumping 5-1 victory at Union Berlin over the weekend.

Holzner says that it remains "very unlikely" that Bayern officials will go back on their decision to reach a mutual parting of the ways with Tuchel at the end of the season.

That has subsequently left it reasonable for former Chelsea boss Tuchel to invite other offers, with the German's stock still high despite Bayern losing their title-winning streak.

Reports have previously indicated that Tuchel would be open to a return to the Premier League and United's expected failure with regards to Champions League qualification is unlikely to discourage a move to the Theatre of Dreams. body check tags ::
