Tuchel has held talks with Sir Jim Ratcliffe over Man Utd job

Former Bayern Munich manager Thomas Tuchel met Manchester United co-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe in Monaco last week, according to BILD journalist Christian Falk.

The Red Devils ended the season on a high by beating Manchester City in the FA Cup final. Alejandro Garnacho and Kobbie Mainoo scored in a hard-fought 2-1 victory.

Despite the result, United have yet to make a decision over manager Erik ten Hag’s future. They started a season review in the last week of May, but have yet to come to a conclusion.

Falk has now revealed that Tuchel held talks with Ratcliffe last Tuesday where he discussed his plans for the club in case Ten Hag is sacked.

The 50-year-old also explained how he could get Jadon Sancho back on track and highlighted how he revived Antonio Rudiger’s career.

United’s silence suggests Ten Hag could leave this summer

Ten Hag was tipped to leave the Red Devils ahead of the FA Cup final, but the speculation has subsided after the club won the competition for the 13th time.

The new management under Ratcliffe started a season review at the end of May, but things have gone completely quiet with no update on Ten Hag’s future.

The ongoing silence is probably not a good thing, and it appears Ratcliffe is holding talks with possible successors.

There is a strong possibility that Ten Hag may not be in charge next season. Tuchel won the Champions League with Chelsea, but his time at Bayern was a mixed bag.

The Bavarian giants only won the Bundesliga in 2022/23 after Borussia Dortmund dropped points in the final game while they finished a disappointing third in the league last term.

There could be a varied reaction among United fans if Tuchel replaced Ten Hag.
