Manchester United are looking to exploit the possible consequences of the current unrest at Chelsea by monitoring the club’s head coach, Thomas Tuchel.
Julien Lopetegui, Luis Enrique, Eric ten Haag, and Mauricio Pochettino are the high-profile names highlighted by the club’s hierarchy to return the English giants to the glory days similar to that of Sir Alex Ferguson.
Ralf Rangnick is set to evacuate his position as manager at the end of the current campaign and Tuchel is the most notable name added to the list of nominees shortlisted for the United job.
Ralf Ragnick was brought in to fill the void after the departure of Ole Gunnar Solskjear but the German has been struck by mixed fortunes since his arrival. He has shown glimpses of returning a lackluster team to order with his authority and dressing room presence, but the results on the pitch have not been too convincing to the fans and the club’s hierarchy.
It is however not surprising, to see the club show interest in his German counterpart. The Chelsea boss is a serial winner and has led the blues to a Champions League title, UEFA Super Cup, and most recently, the FIFA Club World cup since taking over at the Stamford bridge.
The blues are in a torrid period at the moment due to the sanctions that have been imposed by the UK government. The players recently secured a 2-1 win over Lille securing their place in the Champions league’s quarter final indicating the morale at the club is still high despite the tough times.
Thomas Tuchel has expressed his interest in remaining at the helm regardless of what the club’s future holds. This statement would leave United with no option but to step up their search in the market for another coach that matches Tuchel’s CV.
Do you think Tuchel will remain at Chelsea come end of the season? Let us know your thoughts.
