With Bayern Munich in the semifinals of the UEFA Champions League, Thomas Tuchel's stock has risen again despite the club's Bundesliga woes. Tuchel is set to leave Bayern at the end of the season, and a return to the English Premier League could be on the cards for the 50 year old.

Bayern Munich are looking for a new head coach. And after being rebuffed by Xabi Alonso and Julian Nagelsmann, many are calling for the Bayern bosses to keep Tuchel at the club beyond the end of the season.

But the decision to part ways with Tuchel at the end of the season is unlikely to change, and the Bavarians are pressing on with their search for a new head coach, with Roberto De Zerbi, Unai Emery, Ralf Rangnick, Sebastian Hoeneß, and Zinedine Zidane being reported as the club's remaining candidates.

As far as Tuchel's future is concerned, we could see the former Chelsea manager back in the English Premier League next season.

According to a claim by reliable German magazine Kicker, Manchester United are interested in appointing Thomas Tuchel next summer. And they could make a move for him if they decide to part ways with Erik ten Hag.

The magazine reports that Manchester United co-owner Jim Ratcliffe is a big fan of Tuchel, and initial contact has already taken place between the two parties.

Despite attracting interest from Manchester United, Tuchel is not worried about his future at the moment. He is focused on leading Bayern Munich to the UEFA Champions League final, and will think about his future at the end of the season.

Tuchel is regarded as one of the top managers in the world and is set to attract the interest of a number of clubs after he leaves Bayern Munich. We are all set for a massive managerial carousel at the end of the season, with several big clubs likely to look for a new manager. It will be interesting to see what club ends up being Tuchel's next destination after he leaves Bayern.
