Afterwards that to the start of this week informed in Germany that there was some possibility of reconciliation, Thomas Tuchel has revealed this Friday that has not attained to arrive to an agreement for his continuity in the Bayern of Munich. Like this, with what the party of morning, in front of the Hoffenheim, the trainer ensured that it will be the last in which it will be in the bench of the Bavarian club,

"This is my last press conference in the Sabener Strasse. It keeps the agreement of February. We went back to speak, but do not arrive to a common posture to follow", said Tuchel. This announcement of the German, and although it is not a rejection in concrete, adds in the long run smart of "no" that it has found the Bayern in the last weeks in his attempt of fichar a new trainer.

The Bayern could leave to the Barça without Flick anytime

Names like Xabi Alonso, Sebastian Hoeness, Julian Nagelsmann and Ral Rangnick have fallen one after the other, something that had opened the possibility of the continuity of Tuchel, but finally has not been like this. With this current stage, and seeing that the Bayern finished this weekend his first season without titles in a decade, the name of Hansi Flick seems to be the favourite in Munich.

And there, with the exseleccionador German being a real possibility for the Bayern, the FC Barcelona could see as it dispels one of his few options for his bench in front of the sudden possibility that Xavi Hernández was sacked. This Friday, as we already explain in FCBN, Joan Laporta is considering seriously this possibility by the posture that assumed Xavi in his more recent press conference, in the previous of the Almería-Barça.

Although it is clear that Flick is not the favourite, something that yes seems to be Rafa Márquez, the germano represents perhaps the available possibility more 'safe' regarding trainers contrasted in the elite, when being free agent. Although his index card would be considerably greater to the one of the Mexican, and even to the one of Xavi, is a name that the barcelonismo wanted to see in the bench culé if Xavi does not continue, but is clear that a call of the Bayern could weigh a lot of in this moment of uncertainty that exist in Can Barça.
