Thomas Tuchel is currently seen as the leading candidate to take over as Manchester United’s manager if the club opts to part ways with Erik ten Hag. Tuchel, an experienced tactician, recently left Bayern Munich and has a notable history with major clubs such as Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea, where he won the 2021 Champions League.

United’s management values Tuchel’s ability to manage experienced players and his impressive track record in top-tier football. Sir Jim Ratcliffe, who oversees United’s football operations, is spearheading the search for potential replacements alongside Sir Dave Brailsford, acting CEO Jean Claude-Blanc, and technical director Jason Wilcox.

The final decision regarding Ten Hag’s position will be made after the FA Cup final against Manchester City. Other potential candidates include Ipswich Town’s Kieran McKenna, Brentford’s Thomas Frank, England manager Gareth Southgate, and Mauricio Pochettino, who recently departed Chelsea.
