Manchester United are on the verge of parting ways with Erik ten Hag, considering a 50-year-old manager who exited the Premier League in 2022 as his potential replacement.

Manchester United is reportedly on the verge of parting ways with Erik ten Hag, eyeing a seasoned 50-year-old manager who exited the Premier League back in 2022 as his replacement. According to recent reports, the club is ready to sack Ten Hag, with Thomas Tuchel from Bayern Munich being considered as the prime candidate to take over at the end of the current season.

Ten Hag’s future at Old Trafford appears uncertain following criticism over the team’s recent poor performances. Despite leading United to an EFL Cup victory and a third-place finish last season, the Dutch manager has faced scrutiny, having won only 23 out of 47 games this campaign and losing a significant 17 matches along the way.

TEAMtalk suggests that Ten Hag is aware of the looming end to his tenure at Old Trafford, especially with United likely to miss out on a top-four finish this season. Meanwhile, Thomas Tuchel has emerged as the frontrunner to replace the former Ajax and Utrecht boss, as per the club’s senior management.

Tuchel, although unable to secure the Bundesliga title with Bayern Munich this season, has earned a reputation as one of the world’s top managers over the past decade, claiming 11 trophies throughout his career.

Manchester United icon Peter Schmeichel recently expressed his admiration for Tuchel, endorsing the potential move. In an interview with beINSPORTS, Schmeichel praised Tuchel’s football acumen, highlighting his success despite challenging circumstances at big clubs. Schmeichel emphasized Tuchel’s authority and winning pedigree, suggesting he would be a suitable candidate for Manchester United if they were in the market for a new manager.

Tuchel’s coaching journey, which began in 2009, saw notable success with Chelsea, including a Champions League triumph, before his stint with Bayern Munich starting in March 2023. With an impressive record of 38 wins and 13 losses in 57 matches for Bayern, Tuchel’s managerial prowess continues to attract attention from top clubs like Manchester United.
