Bayern Munich CHAOS as reports Tuchel stepping in for SACKED Nagelsmann

Thomas Tuchel is set to take charge of Bayern Munich IMMEDIATELY with Julian Nagelsmann said to be SACKED.

BILD says Tuchel will take over seven months after Chelsea surprisingly axed him.

He's tipped to take charge of training on Monday and face his former club Borussia Dortmund in his opening match on Saturday, April 1.

Champions Bayern are a point adrift of Dortmund in the Bundesliga.

But they sailed into the Champions League quarter-finals with a 3-0 aggregate triumph over PSG.

Ex-RB Leipzig chief Nagelsmann, 35, guided Bayern to the domestic crown last season after taking over in April 2021.

But earlier on Thursday he admitted he had heard rumours he would be axed but denied having been contacted by club chiefs.

And at the start of the week he hinted at internal problems - after admitting a dressing-room mole was leaking tactics.

He was furious after BILD published a team plan, including his own detailed notes.

Nagelsmann hit out: "It bothers me a lot.

"What is the person who transmits this looking for? What are you waiting for?

"I don't see what his motivation could be, beyond facilitating the task for the adversary."
