The Tuchel news emerged a day after former Bayern Munich star Bastian Schweinsteiger revealed that Jose Mourinho could be eyeing up the role.

Speaking about his time with Mourinho at Manchester United, Schweinsteiger said: "I remember he was always asking me about Bayern and the Bundesliga. During our away games, there was always Bundesliga on TV.

"He has not worked in the Bundesliga, so I can well imagine that he would be tempted by a commitment in Germany. He really knew every player, even from the smaller clubs, he also learnt German at the time."
