Manchester United have drawn up a five-man manager shortlist as they seek to replace caretaker boss Ralf Rangnick at season's end.
Sevilla boss Julen Lopetegui and Spain coach Luis Enrique have also joined long-term contenders Mauricio Pochettino, of PSG, and Ajax's Erik ten Hag among some of the other names being considered by United.
Rangnick is due to step into a consultancy role at the club in June and could use his close ties to Tuchel to tempt the former Paris Saint-Germain and Borussia Dortmund coach to Old Trafford.
Lopetegui and Enrique have both been linked with the United job since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's sacking in November.
