United decision leaves many Chelsea fans very happy amid summer rumours
Man United are reluctant to push ahead with a move for Thomas Tuchel due to Chelsea’s takeover bid, which will come as great news for many Blues fans
Tuchel is easily regarded as one of the best coaches in world football right now, and that is why he managed to lead Chelsea to that Champions League title last season and the the club world Cup this season
However, amid all the reports that the club are about to be sold by Roman Abramovic, there has been some been some shock speculation that he may be open to the idea of leaving the club at the end of the season
And that led to even more shocking reports that Man United are ready to swoop in and tempt him with a move to Old Trafford, with the premise of a big budget to buy the players he needs to turn the club back into Champions.
According to The Sun, Tuchel was considered as a candidate but United’s hierarchy believe Chelsea’s takeover bid could drag on throughout the summer.
Jamie Carragher was one of the first to urge United to make a move for Tuchel: ‘Manchester United have been presented with the ideal opportunity to recruit the manager who should be their number one target: Thomas Tuchel,’ Carragher wrote in his Telegraph column.
‘Given the events at Chelsea, United’s decision to wait until the end of the season presents them with a choice no-one could have foreseen.
‘One of the best managers in the world – the current Fifa coach of the year – must be top of their list.
‘Tuchel, like everyone else at Stamford Bridge, will have no idea what the future holds at his current club. No-one can offer him any assurances about how the squad will look at the start of next season given the club’s sale is on hold.
‘No manager wants to be working amid such a background of uncertainty. If he gets the chance to leave for a club of United’s stature, he must take it.
‘United can offer him the security and backing every top coach craves. Yes, it will seem a predatory move – taking advantage of Chelsea’s crisis – but from United and Tuchel’s perspective the more you consider it, the more of a no-brainer it is.
‘Every chief executive in the world looking for a new coach will be – or at least should be – monitoring Tuchel’s mood and public comments between now and the end of the season.’
