Manchester United ‘have eyes on’ PSG boss Thomas Tuchel
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer became the chosen one last December when Manchester United appointed him as caretaker manager to replace José Mourinho.
The former striker was handed a three-year contract, although reports in France suggest United have their eyes on another manager.
The report also signals a fair amount of pressure on Tuchel, who led PSG to Ligue 1 success in his first season in charge, yet that’s not considered good enough by those in power at the Paris club.
Unless PSG have an exceptional season, which probably includes winning the Champions League, Tuchel will be axed at the end of the season.
That seems crazy if he still has them dominating the French league — and before anyone suggests that it’s a league full of farmers, it’s not… and winning the Champions League is never going to be easy. Not when you’re coming up against teams far superior than most in your domestic division.
United knocked PSG out of the Champions League last season in the last 16. Not reaching the semi-finals this season would be deemed failure on Tuchel’s part.
But these reports suggest he won’t have much difficulty finding work elsewhere.
