Manchester United have reportedly made Thomas Tuchel their No 1 managerial target. United are claimed to want to appoint Tuchel before the end of the current season.

United are on the search for a permanent manager following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last December. Ralf Rangnick was brought in on an interim basis until the end of the season.

But Rangnick has been unable to have the desired effect on the United squad and boost his own chances of getting the job on a full-time basis. Mauricio Pochettino and Erik ten Hag are two of the leading candidates for the role.

Paris Saint-Germain boss Pochettino has long been linked with United and Ten Hag has impressed during his time in charge at Ajax. But Tuchel has now overtaken both of them as the preferred target for the Red Devils.

That is according to a report from the Daily Star, which claims United are looking into the possibility of luring Tuchel to Old Trafford before the end of the season. United are aiming to take advantage of the huge financial uncertainty at Chelsea.

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich was last week sanctioned by the UK Government after links were found with the Russian president Vladimir Putin. The growing problems at Stamford Bridge has led to speculation over the future of their manager and players.

Tuchel has publicly stated he would be staying at Chelsea until at least the summer. But there is genuine hope on United’s side that the former PSG manager is now available.
