According to German media publication Sport Bild’s chief football writer Christian Falk on Twitter, Thomas Tuchel has turned down the chance to take over at Bayern Munich in the summer and will instead go to a top club outside of Germany, but Chelsea fans would prefer to get Luis Enrique over him if Antonio Conte leaves at the end of the season.

The Italian manager – whom the fans have demanded bring Isco to the club this summer if he does stay – is in real danger of losing his job at Stamford Bridge despite winning the Premier League title less than a year ago, with his team currently lying in fifth position in the top flight and in real danger of missing out on Champions League qualification, having been eliminated by Barcelona at the last 16 stages of this term’s competition.
The west London outfit have been linked with Enrique and Tuchel in recent weeks, but despite the latest intriguing update on the latter, Blues supporters have said that they would prefer the former Barca chief via social media.
While one said “Luis Enrique is the only manager that can compete with Pep”, another said “would be happier with Enrqiue than Tuchel”.

Choice is simple
A manager who won the treble at the best team in the world or
A manager who didn't last 6 months at a big German club

I can't even imagine why you would prefer Thomas Tuchel with only one major trophy in his entire managerial career over Luis Enrique that managed one or the best team in the world and has almost 10major trophies @HazardChaos_
