Tuchel would not be short of options if he decides to leave, with United eyeing the German.
Sanctions have fallen on Chelsea, and the club face the risk of falling into administration. Chelsea already had problems regarding some of their personnel before the sanctions on Roman Abramovich. With the sanctions expected to take their toll, several other clubs are waiting for the ultimate demise of the West London club.
Perhaps, this is not exactly what we think it is, but the meddling of politics in football matters is saddening. The ultimate victims of the government sanctions are the fans.
Despite having a subsisting contract with Chelsea, the vultures are circling, hoping to swoop in and snap Thomas Tuchel from the grasps of the ailing club. Six clubs have shown interest in taking the German, with Manchester United named as one of them.
Manchester United are on the hunt for a new manager and hope to sign one in the summer. The Mancunian club is in distress and want a manager to pilot them out of their present predicament.
Let’s stick in the knife a bit. Manchester United are the architect of their woes, with plenty of average players littering the scene. Manchester United spent big money on these players in a rage of sentiment-induced decisions. It is this hypocrisy that is ailing English football.
The Red Devils have indicated an interest in signing Thomas Tuchel, but they have competition from five other clubs also interested in the services of the German tactician. Rumours continue to swirl over the immediate future of Thomas Tuchel. The UK sanctions have placed an air of uncertainty over the club, including doubts over Tuchel remaining at the club.
According to Telegraph Sport, clubs are already waiting to pounce. They have asked the representatives of Thomas Tuchel to keep them informed on any developments concerning his future.
Of the six clubs mentioned with interest in signing Thomas Tuchel, only Manchester United was named. It is hardly surprising considering that the Red Devils are in the market for a new manager. If Tuchel decides to leave Chelsea, he would not be short of options.
It is unlikely that Tuchel would want to leave Chelsea. The 48-year-old is loving life at Stamford Bridge and would hope the impasse is resolved soon.
Chelsea would lose several players in the summer and be unable to replace them if the sanctions persist. Three players would be out of contract in the summer, which means negotiations would be on hold for now.
Jamie Carragher has asked United to push to sign Tuchel. Going by the track record of the Red Devils in recent years, it would amount to cleaning out the Augean stables. Tuchel would do well to avoid Manchester United.
