Is Thomas Tuchel heading to PSG?

Thomas Tuchel will replace Unai Emery at PSG in the summer, according to reports from ESPN.

Emery’s future has been shredded in doubt since PSG’s latest Champions League failure, in which they were defeated by Real Madrid in the last-16. While there’s absolutely no shame in losing to one of the best teams in the world, the French giants have made no secret of their desire to stand alone at the summit of European football.

Emery is still on course for the domestic treble. The League Cup is already in the trophy cabinet, the league title is all but won, while The Parisiens face Caen in the French Cup semi-finals later this month.

However, even if the former Sevilla manager does win the treble, it appears his fate has already been sealed, with a summer departure looking inevitable at this stage.

PSG have been hotly linked with high-profile bosses such as Antonio Conte, Luis Enrique and Arsene Wenger, but if the latest dose of rumours are to be believed then it’s former Borussia Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel who is heading to the Parc des Princes in a few months.

The German tactician had been out-of-work since leaving Dortmund in murky circumstances last May, just days after winning the German Cup. The 43-year-old left the club due to a reported toxic relationship with the hierarchy, centred around disagreements over players and transfers.

Tuchel, who favours a Jurgen Klopp-esq Gegenpressing approach and speaks fluent French, has since been linked with Dortmund’s rivals Bayern Munich and also the likes of Chelsea and Arsenal, with the futures of Conte and Wenger up in the air. However, it now looks like he could become the latest man to attempt to bring Champions League glory to the French giants.
