Former Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel is the front-runner to replace Erik ten Hag as the new Manchester United head coach.

The Red Devils have had an average Premier League campaign and they are currently sixth in the table with only 54 points.

The club have missed out on the Champions League and they still have work to do to qualify for European football next term.

Amidst this, it is claimed that Ten Hag's position is hanging in the balance and he could be relieved from his duties this summer.

Tuchel, who is currently the manager at Bayern Munich, is the front-runner for the job. He is expected to leave Bayern when the season ends.

The German tactician is a fond admirer of the Mancunian giants, and could be open to negotiations before the end of the month.

Ten Hag still has the backing of the board, but the failure to beat Manchester City in the FA Cup final could see him leave.
