Bayern Munich have reportedly touched base with Thomas Tuchel’s entourage to inquire about the possibility of him coaching the team next season.
According to RMCSport, Bayern have already contacted Tuchel’s entourage as the German club is closely following his situation at PSG. The report claims Die Roten will have to face competition from Chelsea for Tuchel’s services and further adds that ten Hag is also in the running to be Bayern’s next manager.
Tuchel recently signed an extension at PSG, but the club’s poor second half of the season has raised doubts over his future at the club. The former Borussia Dortmund manager previously emerged as the prime candidate to manage Bayern when Carlo Ancelotti was sacked last season. Tuchel, however, rejected the advances from the Bavarians and decided to join PSG.
The French giants will end the season with as Ligue 1 champions, but they have struggled to do well in the cup competitions — particularly in the Champions League.
There is going to be a squad upheaval at Bayern Munich this summer. The club needs to make a decision about the coach quickly in order to avoid clashes during recruitment. If Kovac goes on to win a double, it will be difficult to part ways with him. It would be also harsh to judge him based on one season with this aging Bayern squad.
Bayern will be better placed at the end of next season to make a decision on Kovac. Moreover, the above-mentioned coaches will be realistically ready and available to take up this job at the start of the 2020/21 season.
