Man Utd or Arsenal could provide Thomas Tuchel with Premier League job he craves

Thomas Tuchel has this morning been dismissed by PSG after calling the club out in a thinly-veiled interview on Tuesday night.

The German boss has clashed with Parc des Princes chiefs in recent months and has subsequently been axed, despite sitting third in Ligue 1, one point off top spot.

Tuchel is likely to be replaced by Mauricio Pochettino at PSG.

And German outlet Bild say Tuchel is keen on testing his hand in the Premier League.

Manchester United and Arsenal are already being mentioned in relation to 47-year-old's next move – but will either English side take the plunge and bring the former Borussia Dortmund manager in?

Arsenal are being urged to sack Mikel Arteta following a tough start to the season, with sections of the Gunners fanbase keen for a change in the dugout.

The Emirates side are holding firm for the minute – but Arteta knows he must turn things around quickly.

United is a bit more tricky for Tuchel.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under contract until 2022 and seems to have most of the Old Trafford fanbase on side.

However, the Red Devils have spoke with Tuchel in the past.

And the ex-PSG boss was even been touted for the job earlier this month.

According to our information he can really imagine taking the step to the Premier League,” German football expert Christian Falk told SportBILD.

“It is no secret that his chapter at Paris Saint Germain will probably be finished at the end of the season.

“There are no talks, and we know that already in the past there was contact with Tuchel and Manchester United.

“It is a club that would fit to him and surely when the time comes for managers to be shortlisted he should be there.

“Ole Gunnar Solskjaer only has a contract until 2022 and United are far away from the Champions League places in the Premier League.

Speaking on Tuesday, Tuchel lashed out at the PSG board.

“To be completely honest, during the first six months, I said to myself: 'Am I still a manager or am I a politician in sport, a Minister for Sports? Where is my role as manager in such a club now? I said to myself: I just want to coach.'

"I think that is why I became a coach and that is why I still am, I can find myself anywhere. Anywhere where there is a half-pitch to train and a DVD player to make videos.

"At its heart, I love the game and I can get this satisfaction in many ways as a manager.

"Sometimes, it is very easy, sometimes, it is a big challenge, because a club like PSG, has a number of influences in it aside from the focused interest of the team… I only love football.

"And in a club like this, it is not always just football.”
