Former manager Julian Nagelsmann was also linked to the job but they were dealt another blow as the 39-year-old decided to extend his contract with Germany national team.

Former Man United caretaker manager Ralf Rangnick has now emerged as top candidate to replace Tuchel.

The Austria national team manager confirmed he has been contacted by Bayern but are yet to reach an agreement.

Meanwhile, on Tuesday, April 23, disgruntled Bayern Munich fans took to to start a petition, asking the club officials to retain Thomas Tuchel as the club’s manager next season and abort the mission to bring in Ralf Rangnick.

Reacting to the fans’ petition, Thomas Tuchel said it was pleasant the fans want him to stay but added he is focused on his job.

“For me this is a pleasant topic that people want to keep me here. But it has no priority for me”.

“I don’t want to take it as an excuse or distraction. We are in full focus on the final games”.

It has yet to be determined whether Bayern Munich will be forced to abandon their decision to sack Tuchel at end of the season due to the petition.
