After being sacked by Chelsea earlier this month, manager Thomas Tuchel is now being linked with the top job at another of Europe's biggest clubs.

The German tactician was dismissed from the Blues' helm in rather startling fashion as he was given his marching orders soon after the Premier League club had backed him handsomely in the latest transfer window.

Co-owner Todd Boehly has since revealed that he felt the 49-year-old had to be let go as he was not in total agreement with the direction in which the new American owners wanted to take the club in.

Chelsea have since brought in former Brighton & Hove Albion boss Graham Potter as his successor, while the former Paris Saint-Germain coach is understood to be keen to return to management as soon as possible.

According to German news outlet Bild, Tuchel's return to the dugout may come sooner rather than later, with the Bayern Munich hierarchy holding the tactician in high regard.

Current Bavarians boss Julian Nagelsmann finds himself under increasing pressure as his side is winless in their past four league games, with a defeat at the hands of Augsburg on the weekend creating further doubt regarding his future at the Allianz Arena.

While club CEO Oliver Kahn has publicly backed the 35-year-old to turn things around following that disappointing result, it is speculated the Bundesliga giants have a secret clause in Nagelsmann's contract that would allow them to relieve him of his duties after another bad result with Tuchel seemingly next in line to take over.

There have also been suggestions in Italian media that Juventus could consider hiring the ex-Borussia Dortmund manager, although some have dismissed these claims due to how much it would cost the Bianconeri to sack current boss Massimiliano Allegri and then pay the kind of wages Tuchel commands.
