Manchester United Could Replace Ole Gunnar Solskajer With PSG Boss Thomas Tuchel

Per talkSPORT, French publication L'Equipe have taken the claims further stating United have even informed the German of their interest.

They also believe the former Borussia Dortmund boss is on the shortlist of numerous clubs around Europe.

They state,

"Three teams around Europe have let him know they continue to follow him closely, among which are Bayern Munich and Manchester United."

It makes for worrying news for Solskjaer as the 46-year-old is only just six months into a three year deal he signed with United back in March.

The fan favourite signed as full-time manager after an impressive run as caretaker manager which even included Champions League victory over Tuchel's PSG side.

Since taking the job full time it's been less than stellar for Solskjaer.

United endured a miserable end to last season missing out on the Champions League.

They have only lost one game this season but many performances have been uninspiring.

Tuchel on the other hand is under pressure to deliver European glory to the Parcs de Princes.

He took over PSG in summer 2018 and won the league title in May as well as the Trophee des Champions two years in a row.

Expensive signings of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe over the last few years have shown the emphasis on wanting the Champions League.

Tuchel's management style benefits a system more than players so having to play expensive assets every game has reportedly frustrated him in the past.

Failure to deliver Champions League glory has seen many managers depart the Ligue 1 giants over the years, most recently Unai Eemery.

Tuchel is likely back on club radars after PSG's dominant display in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

PSG ran riot against Real Madrid and won 3-0 putting more pressure on Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane.

Should he choose to leave Paris in the coming years, you have to assume United would not be the only side sniffing around the 46-year-old.
