The German tactician saw his side lose 1-0 to Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League final on Sunday night, and was asked about potentially signing Lionel Messi in a post-match interview.

"He's very welcome. What coach says no to Messi?" Tuchel told BT Sport.

"I think Messi finishes his career in Barcelona. He's Mr Barcelona."

Tuchel, though, also insisted Les Parisiens need to become active in this transfer window after losing Edinson Cavani and Thomas Meunier – who both left the club prior to the final stages of the 2019/20 Champions League campaign – while Thiago Silva and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting are set to leave as free agents.

"We lost lots of players for this campaign and we lose now Thiago Silva and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting," he added.

"We need to use the transfer window now to make the squad wider. The campaign will be very demanding without any breaks.

"We need to build a strong squad. We decided not to talk about transfers in this period. We'll sit together in the next days."
