Manchester United have ‘enquired’ about Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel, but the German is not keen on a move away from Stamford Bridge.

That’s according  to Sky Sports Germany journalist Florian Plettenburg, who says Tuchel has no interest in joining Manchester United.

The German boss has been linked with a move to Old Trafford this summer as a result of the sanctions currently being imposed on Chelsea by the UK government.

Their decision to sanction Roman Abramovich has directly affected the Blues, who now find themselves under a transfer embargo and struggling to cover costs.

It’s led to the belief there could be a fire-sale at the club this summer, and that would include the potential of Tuchel walking away and moving somewhere else.

Manchester United have been urged to move for him if there is any possibility of that happening, with fans and pundits alike believing he would be the ideal manager to take over at the club when Ralf Rangnick steps down from his caretaker role this summer.

Plettenburg has poured cold water on that idea, though, insisting Chelsea’s Tuchel is not interested in the move north to Manchester.

“Update #Tuchel: Yes, #MUFC is interested due to the uncertain future of Chelsea,” he wrote on Twitter.

“They have enquired about him. But: Tuchel loves the club, he wants to stay at #CFC, his family is happy in London. He doesn’t think about a move to Manchester United, actually.”
