Tuchel insists on Bayern departure despite current talks

Tuchel insists on Bayern departure despite current talks

Bayern Munich manager Thomas Tuchel on Friday broke the hearts of his fans as he confirmed that he will leave the former Bundesliga champions this summer despite holding talks about a potential U-turn to stay.

The Bavarians announced in February the German, 50, would depart with a year left on his contract after a difficult campaign, in which Bayern were beaten to the Bundesliga title by Bayer Leverkusen.

A petition from fans called for Tuchel to stay but the former Chelsea manager says talks "did not reach an agreement".

"Our agreement from February still stands," said Tuchel, who was appointed in March 2023.

Tuchel has been mooted as a possible replacement for Erik ten Hag at Manchester United with media reports in England reporting that the former Chelsea and PSG manager has been shortlisted as one of the candidates for the United job. 

Tuchel's final game in charge will be a trip to Hoffenheim on Saturday in Bayern's last match of the Bundesliga season.

After it was announced he would leave, Bayern beat Arsenal in the Champions League quarter-finals but then suffered a dramatic exit in the semi-finals against Real Madrid.

The German side wanted to appoint their former midfielder Xabi Alonso but he opted to stay at Leverkusen, while Ralf Rangnick held talks before deciding to remain with the Austrian national team.

Leverkusen's Bundesliga win ended a run of 11 straight titles for Bayern.
