The Portuguese has been at the club since 2014 and has guided United to three league titles and an FA Cup.

However, he is involved in a two-year contract extension saga with United and striker Romelu Lukaku believes he will be sacked if he refuses to stay in the job.

Tuchel is a two-time Bundesliga title winner as Borussia Dortmund boss, having led them to three consecutive league titles from 2013 to 2015.

He has also coached Schalke, Mainz and Rostov in Russia, and has led the Germany side through three successful years.

However, he could take his first job in English football after Jose Mourinho confirmed that he would stay in charge for the rest of the season.
