Thomas Tuchel leaves door open to Barcelona job with Bayern Munich future hint

Thomas Tuchel leaves door open to Barcelona job with Bayern Munich future hint

Could Tuchel be on his way out of Germany?

Bayern Munich boss Thomas Tuchel has fuelled rumours he may soon head for pastures new away from the Bundesliga.

Tuchel, 50, joined the reigning German champions in March 2023 after a successful spell with Chelsea.

The former PSG boss however has stated how he would like to test his skillset in Spain, with some suggesting he may be tempted to succeed Xavi at the Nou Camp.

Bayern are one of the favourites to win the UEFA Champions League this season after bringing experienced forward Harry Kane to the club in the summer.

The England captain has struck up a solid relationship with Tuchel thus far, having found the net 27 times in 26 appearances this term.

But even given the squad depth and success he is enjoying in Germany, the ex-Dortmund boss believes he could see himself managing in La Liga.

Speaking during a visit to the Bayern fan club ‘Red Stars’ in Heidenheim, he said: “Moving abroad would appeal to me again.

"Spain has an extraordinary league. From my perspective, and based on my experience working with Spaniards, they are characterised by a tremendous amount of self-confidence.

"When you speak with Spanish players, I quickly get the sense that you are engaging with the person.”

Tuchel is one of the most well thought of managers in European football and his links with Barcelona could mean a move is on the cards.

Current Barca boss Xavi is set to leave his post at the end of the current campaign, despite winning the Spanish top flight last term.

Admitting the pressures of managing one of the biggest clubs is taking its toll, the door does appear to be ajar for Tuchel to step in and potential take over.

“I think this decision will help unblocking the team and the mood in here," Xavi said.

"I just told the president Laporta now. We’ve had a meeting, it was a very human conversation, just with common sense. "The trust from them is still fantastic.

“But I believe this is the moment to say this. I don’t make my decisions following money, my contract will never be a problem."
