The Thomas Tuchel-to-Bayern merry-go-round continues: Sky Sports has just claimed that that Tuchel prefers Bayern Munich to Arsenal after all. The media outlet disputes reports from Germany (Kicker, Sport Bild and others) that claimed the German would be taking the reins at Arsenal.

Sky Sports now report that there has been no contact between Tuchel ‘s representatives and Arsenal, leaving the German in a position of decision. Additionally, Sky Sports add that Tuchel may have his sights set on Stamford Bridge, the home of Chelsea. The London club supposedly appeals to Tuchel because the structure of the football administration at the club suits him better. Furthermore, if Tuchel doesn’t take the Bayern Munich job, after all, he would be open to a destination in the Premier League, but only if the club is a member of Europe’s elite, and playing European Football.

Will the former Borussia Dortmund manager return to Germany in charge of Bayern Munich? It appears that media outlets are unsure themselves. With such contradictory reports, it’s difficult to pinpoint where the Tuchel merry-go-round will end.

But wait, there’s more! Ralph Hasenhüttl

While Sky Sports is arguing that Tuchel could still come to Bayern, Bild now claims that Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are both courting RB Leipzig’s Ralph Hasenhüttl:

According to Bild, as one of the only remaining viable candidates, Leipzig could potentially sell Hasenhüttl for a record fee. “The poker can start!” as they put it.
