Former Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel is rumoured to have agreed to join one of the biggest and strongest teams.
Since being fired by Chelsea in September 2022 after only seven games into the 2022/23 season, the German has been connected with a variety of roles.
As per reports, Juventus, PSG, Real Madrid, and, most recently, Tottenham Hotspur are among the teams who have pondered moving for the coach.
However, it has now been revealed that he has finally accepted an offer and that his return to the dugout is on the horizon.
Sports journalist Fabrizio Romano reveal that, the Bayern Munich board of directors decided to replace manager Julian Nagelsmann with Tuchel following an internal meeting on Thursday evening.

Although the former has yet to get formal notice from the Bayern side regarding the decision, the latter is claimed to have accepted the job and is ready to sign as papers are being prepared.
An official announcement is expected later on Friday, with Bayern Munich’s on-loan full-back Joao Cancelo commenting on the German giants’ likely decision following Portugal’s 4-0 win over Liechtenstein in their UEFA European Championship qualifiers on Thursday night.
“I’ve only found out now,” he said, according to the Mirror.
“I know I won’t find Nagelsmann when I return to Munich. He wanted me at Bayern, I’d like to thank him.
“As for Tuchel, he made me lose a Champions League final, so I hope he will win it for me this year!”
