Oh dear, I fear for us. It’s gonna be Southgate I’m afraid.
Can't see it myself. Preseason starts shortly after the Euros finishes, and INEOS will want to be proactive when the transfer window opens in June instead of wasting 6 weeks waiting around for Southgate to give his green light on player recruitment.

Looks like he might be staying after all

So, how does that work exactly? "Yeah, Thomas, we undermined your season when we announced you are going months beforehand, and then looked absolutely everywhere for someone to replace you but found no takers. Can you stay now?" :lol:

By pouring money on him.

Also it's basically Hoeneß accepting defeat if that happens after he really doubled down. And that's significant, I don't think it has ever happened in internal power struggles since he became part of Bayern's board in the 70s.

Surely Tuchel would require some apology from Hoeneß, public or private, which is something that I find quite amusing.

If United approach him formally, I think he’ll come

More happens behind the scenes than we know about. If he’s staying, I guess it’s also because the correct job isn’t out there for him either

Imagine Tuchel demands a personal apology from Hoeneß who refuses categorically, so he joins United. Would be the perfect Ten Hag successor.

I think Tuchel would come to any top team in England over staying at Bayern if he had that option. I think it would be mad for United not to go for him especially given the other options, he's just a different caliber to anything else available right now including Ten Hag.

They have a ready made excuse since neither the current Sporting CEO nor the current Sporting Director were responsible for firing Tuchel. It is the old guard Hoeneß and Rummenigge who did that.

The only other team interested in him is United.... I'd not want an apology to stay either.

Shades of ETH and Sancho, Maybe instead, Hoeneß refuses to apologise to Tuchel and is loaned to Dortmund!

Definitely no coincidence that he announces his departure on the day there is rumours about Xavi being sacked by Barca

May seem so, but it's just that negotiations finally failed this morning & there was a match day press conference right afterwards. Besides, not sure Tuchel is in the mood for yet another dysfunctional, volatile club.

Barca is, by the looks of it, going to be promoting Marquez from their B team. Don't think they'll go for Tuchel.

That’s United out then
Pretty sure he'd love to coach United. Would probably depend on how the INEOS rebuild plans come across.

I'd also say Barca and Bayern are worse for a coach right now, as their internal situations are just toxic.

Yeah surely INEOS can see that the guy is worthy of an interview, they can then put across to him their plans for a rebuild

So why would he come to United then?
