Manchester United monitoring Thomas Tuchel in search for new manager

Manchester United are monitoring Thomas Tuchel’s situation at Chelsea as they intensify their search for a new manager.

The future of the Champions League holders is unsure after the government imposed sanctions on their owner, Roman Abramovich. United are aware that Tuchel is contracted until 2024 and has stated he will remain at Chelsea until the end of season.

Yet the London club’s predicament has alerted the United hierarchy. Chelsea have been granted a special licence to operate until 31 May but if the club are not sold by then they face an uncertain future.

Tuchel has impressed United with a CV that includes winning last season’s Champions League, after turning Chelsea around when replacing Frank Lampard last January. The 48-year-old also led Chelsea to the FA Cup final before claiming the Uefa Super Cup and the Fifa Club World Cup and losing this season’s Carabao Cup final.

Paris Saint-Germain’s Mauricio Pochettino and Ajax’s Erik ten Hag are among other candidates under consideration. Their teams have, like United, gone out of the Champions League in the last 16.
