It seems that Arsenal are one of the main characters in the ‘Where will Thomas Tuchel be managing next season’ saga. Recent reports from the German media really confused the situation surrounding the talented boss.
One German media organisation claimed that Tuchel had signed a deal with Arsenal, while another completely contradicted its competitor saying that Tuchel is more likely to move to Paris.
Bayern the preferred option for Tuchel
Now according to Sky Sports, the former Dortmund boss’ most likely destination this summer is German giants Bayern Munich. The move would be an understandable one for Tuchel.
The Bavarians are the undisputed heavyweight champions of the Bundesliga. They are also one the biggest clubs in Europe. He would have a strong squad to work with and decent resources to sign players if needed.
Current boss Jupp Heynckes came out of retirement to step into the job on a temporary basis until the end of the season. The veteran was never supposed to be a long-term appointment.
However, Sky Sports report contradicts the report that suggested the highly rated boss was headed for Arsenal. In that report, it was claimed that Tuchel had turned down a move to Bavaria, as he wanted to manage in a foreign league.
A number of options available
We will never know where Thomas Tuchel is managing until he or his new club announce his decision. However, what seems to have come out of all this speculation is the fact that Tuchel has a number of very attractive options available to him.
The likes of Chelsea and PSG have also been heavily linked with a move for the talented German boss, who reportedly turned down the chance to talk to Southampton about their vacant position prior to Mark Hughes recent appointment.
Tuchel would be a good appointment for Arsenal
I have been a big fan of Thomas Tuchel since his days at Mainz. He comes across as a highly-rated coach with good managerial acumen and somebody who is progressive in his football ideas.
In other words, the sort of boss Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger was when he first arrived at Arsenal. The Gunners need a boss who can revive the team’s flagging fortunes and make the team contenders again for the big trophies.
The support for Wenger’s reign is decreasing by the second. Maybe a new man at the helm like Tuchel will get the fans excited and help unite supporters.
