Thomas Tuchel holds secret meeting with Manchester United

Former Bayern Munich manager, Thomas Tuchel is reported to have engaged in a clandestine meeting with Manchester United minority co-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe in Monaco, fueling speculation about Erik ten Hag’s future at the club.

Despite United’s triumphant 2-1 victory over Manchester City in the FA Cup final last month, doubts about Ten Hag’s position persist. The Guardian previously reported that Ten Hag would be dismissed regardless of the FA Cup result, but this prediction has yet to materialize.

The Athletic confirmed that Ratcliffe and INEOS plan to conduct an end-of-season review before making any final decisions on Ten Hag’s tenure.

Fan Uncertainty: The delay in announcing a definitive decision has left Manchester United fans in a state of unease. The club’s discussions with Ipswich boss Kieran McKenna, as reported by Sky Sports, ended without resolution as McKenna committed to a long-term contract with Ipswich.

Tuchel’s Monaco Meeting: German outlet Bild revealed that Tuchel met with Ratcliffe in Monaco to discuss potential strategies for the team.

During the meeting, Tuchel proposed solutions for United’s ‘sporting problems,’ specifically mentioning Jadon Sancho and Mason Mount. Sancho, currently on loan at Borussia Dortmund following a fallout with Ten Hag, was a focal point of Tuchel’s plans.

Additionally, Tuchel cited his successful management of Antonio Rudiger at Chelsea, noting Rudiger’s subsequent Champions League victory with Real Madrid.

Tuchel Withdraws from Contention: Despite the intriguing discussions, football insider Fabrizio Romano reported that Tuchel has opted not to pursue the Manchester United managerial role.

Romano stated:

“Thomas Tuchel not planning to take Man United job, he wants to take a break not coaching any club this summer. Tuchel currently decided not to continue in talks with United after meeting in recent weeks. United, deciding on Erik ten Hag future soon.”

Looking Ahead: As United’s leadership evaluates the season and contemplates their managerial options, fans eagerly await clarity on the club’s direction. The upcoming decisions will be crucial in shaping United’s future and maintaining stability within the team.
