Thomas Tuchel keeps on suffering setbacks at PSG. The German coach asked the board for an effort to sign Frenkie de Jong, but Barcelona signed him in a flash. When Tuchel found out, he was extremely disappointed.

At least, that is what the Dutch midfielder's agent, Ali Dursun, said in comments to 'Voetbal International'. He says that Tuchel even started crying when he found out that Frenkie de Jong had joined Barca

"Everyone knew about that interest and knew that Frenkie was studying all the options. I have known him for a while and I know when he chooses something. Thomas Tuchel was literally in tears when he lost the battle," the cited media outlet explained. 

Frenkie de Jong's signing was done last January while the European giants were fighting for him. In the end, Barcelona won the race.
