PSG published an official statement that Tuchel had been extended for an additional year to end in 2021 instead of his current contract.

Rumours were circulating about the future of PSG, with former Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri and Portuguese coach Jose Mourinho being nominated for his post.

Tuchel led the team to the French league title in his first season, but lost the French Cup and the League Cup, and left the Champions League by Manchester United in the knockout stage.
