Bayern Munich crashed out of the Champions League semifinal on Wednesday evening but unlike their group stage competitors Manchester United, Die Roten can bow out with their heads held high. They were hard-done-by the officials, who ruled against them with some contentious decisions.

Needless to say, winning the Champions League or even reaching the final would have been the only saving grace to protect the current bond between Thomas Tuchel and the Bavarian club. As things stand though, it looks like the decision will remain the same and the two parties will part ways this summer.

But what does this mean for Thomas Tuchel? As a coach who has plenty of experience at the top level now, it would be a surprise for him not to secure his next European adventure.

Well, on that note, there has been an update on the potential destination of Thomas Tuchel...

Manchester United approach Bayern Munich coach to replace Erik ten Hag

According to talkSPORT, Thomas Tuchel has been involved in discourse with the Manchester United officials over potentially taking the job to replace Erik ten Hag. It is believed that Tuchel would like to return to the Premier League after his journey there ended prematurely, after not making a great impression as Chelsea boss.

The report states that Sir Jim Ratcliffe would like to bring in a head coach to Manchester United who is committed to the project for the long-term. Thomas Tuchel is not believed to be a long-term manager since he does not have the best reputation of sticking true to any one club.

Still, he could soon turn this reputation around as Tuchel has made no secret of his desire to steer Manchester United back on the straight and narrow.

As for Bayern Munich, they must sort out Tuchel's replacement. This is a decision which the board is understandably not taking lightly since the club needs a serious improvement on this season.

For most clubs in Europe, not lifting a trophy in a season is not the end of the world. However, for Bayern Munich, a trophyless season is far below their expectations, so they understandably would like a manager to come in and enable them to compete for silverware again.
