The former Borussia Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel led the Ligue 1 giants to consecutive titles and the Champions League final last season, though, was not deemed good enough by the PSG hierarchy has been linked to Chelsea.
“After an in-depth analysis of its sporting situation, Paris Saint-Germain decided to terminate Thomas Tuchel’s contract,” an official club statement read.
“Thomas Tuchel became PSG coach in July 2018, going on to manage the capital club 127 times in all competitions, with 95 wins, 13 draws and 19 defeats (337 goals scored, 103 conceded).
“His trophy haul covers two Ligue 1 titles in 2019 and 2020, the Coupe de France and Coupe de la Ligue in 2020, two Trophees de Champions in 2018 and 2019 as well as leading Paris Saint-Germain to the first Champions League final in the club’s history last August.
“I would like to thank Thomas Tuchel and his staff for all they have contributed to the club,” said Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, Chairman and CEO of Paris Saint-Germain.
“Thomas has put a lot of energy and passion into the job, and we will of course remember the good moments we shared together.
“I wish him all the best for the future.”
Tuchel is well known for having an admiration for the Premier League and, according to BILD, he’s already building that project so it becomes a reality with Chelsea.
The German publication also adds that out of any Premier League club his most likely destination would be to Chelsea if they drop further points.
Frank Lampard’s side currently sit in sixth having lost three from their past five games. Chelsea invested heavily in the summer but big signings Timo Werner and Kai Havertz have yet to show a fair return for their hefty transfer fees.
At the moment there does seem to be little pressure on Lampard but if similar results continue he could find himself in a spot of bother.
Arsenal have also been linked with bringing Tuchel in but back-to-back wins have quieted any talk of Mikel Arteta being dismissed. Prior to the six points picked up against Chelsea and Brighton, the Gunners had lost five Premier League games from seven.
