Thomas Tuchel could face the axe at Paris Saint-Germain after their Champions League final defeat with Max Allegri targeted, according to reports.

The French giants underwhelmed when it mattered most after crashing to a narrow 1-0 defeat to Bayern Munich on Sunday.

PSG’s star-studded names including Neymar and Kylian Mbappe failed to deliver in Lisbon leaving club chiefs debating the future of Tuchel.

According to Gianluca di Marzio, he told Sky “employees close to PSG” believe showdown talks are set to commence with Tuchel’s adventure coming to an end.

He adds if that is the case, former Juventus manager Allegri is prepared to fill his boots in a bid to reach the pinnacle.
