Thomas Tuchel has emerged as the main target of Manchester United (MU). In fact, taking advantage of Chelsea’s shaky internal situation, the Red Devils management intends to recruit him before the 2021/2022 Premier League ends.
United CEO Richard Arnold wants to appoint Thomas Tuchel as soon as possible rather than waiting until the summer. On the other hand, Mauricio Pochettino remains on the list of prospective managers next season.
The heated situation at Chelsea gives United hope that Tuchel can now move closer to Old Trafford.
Moreover, there are doubts following Pochettino’s failure to win the Champions League trophy. While Thomas Tuchel , within six months, can win it last season.
United have also been impressed by how Tuchel has handled the growing pressure of dealing with the crisis at Chelsea .
Scholes’ advice The two names most widely rumored to be being approached by Manchester United are Mauricio Pochettino and Erik ten Hag. However, Scholes feels that Conte and Tuchel are more worthy of managing the Red Devils.
“I would probably choose Conte or Tuchel now. They may be available at the end of the year,” Scholes told BT Sport .
“They are both top coaches, which I think scares the players, and winning, that’s the most important thing.”
Scholes also believes that Conte or Tuchel are the right figures to be able to make United’s quality players shine.
“One of them the coach is going to make this squad a lot better, OK they need extras but people are saying they need four or five by spending £200m or whatever,” Scholes said.
“There’s a group of players there who are good and could be made much better by a top quality, elite coach.”
