Thomas Tuchel responds to links with Manchester United job with Premier League admission

Thomas Tuchel has confirmed it is “very unlikely” he will be at Bayern Munich next season and admitted he loves the Premier League, amid reports linking him with the Manchester United job.

Bayern confirmed in February that Tuchel would be leaving in the summer after a poor run of form led to Bayer Leverkusen running away with the Bundesliga.

A recent upturn in form for Bayern, who are playing Real Madrid in the second leg of their semi-final on Wednesday night, has led to reports that Tuchel could stay.

Bayern have also struggled to land a replacement for him after failing in pursuits of Julian Nagelsmann and Xabi Alonso.

But asked where he will be next season, Tuchel told TNT Sports: “It’s very, very, very unlikely that it’s at Bayern, I have to say, because we have an agreement, there is at the moment no reason to doubt this agreement.

“We took this position, the initiative came from the club, and so it is and I’m fine with it.

“I don’t need it for the extra percentage of competitiveness because I’m always up for a win, I’m always thinking how to improve the squad or how to improve myself in coaching.

“We go all in. Does it have an influence on where I am next season? Maybe not, maybe I’m on holiday no matter what, let’s see, let’s see.”

Tuchel has been heavily linked with a return to the Premier League, especially given the uncertainty around Erik ten Hag’s future at Manchester United.

The German, who led Chelsea to Champions League glory in 2021, would love to work in England again.

“It is no secret that I loved it at Chelsea, I loved it in England and I loved it in the Premier League for sure, it was a very, very special time and I remember it very well,” he added.
