Bayern Munich are having a season to forget. This seems bizarre to say for a team who is second in the table and into the quarterfinal of the Champions League but they are severely underperforming. Therefore, the board made the right decision to part ways with Thomas Tuchel and Thomas Tuchel made the right decision to extend his loyalty until the end of the season.

This will keep what's left of Bayern Munich's squad harmony intact but the board have a big decision to make - Who will replace Thomas Tuchel? The truth is, nobody knows. However, this is working in Bayern's favour, as they have plenty of time to consider their best option, instead of rushing the gigantic decision.

Thankfully for Bayern Munich fans, the Oracle has spoken and he has provided an update. Posting to X (formerly Twitter), Italian football journalist Fabrizio Romano said that Roberto De Zerbi has a release clause in his Brighton contract, which could be activated in the summer for around £12m/£13m. Internal talks are still thought to be ongoing at Bayern Munich.

As mentioned earlier, this is a huge decision for Bayern Munich to make. Therefore, fans should not expect the club to rush into any decision. They have afforded themselves plenty of time, which they appear to be using well.

This season is one to forget but hope is not lost for next season. Bayern Munich have an excellent young squad, some players of which can be considered world-class. Therefore, under the right management, they could certainly excel to new heights.

In De Zerbi, it is important to address that Bayern Munich won't be getting a proven winner. However, he is one of the best tacticians in the world and he is known to get the most out of players. Therefore, giving him access to world-class talents at the Allianz Arena is a frightening thought.
