The highly-rated 44-year-old German, who has been out of work since leaving Borussia Dortmund last summer, will succeed Unai Emery.

"It is with great joy and ambition that I join this great, global football club that is Paris Saint-Germain", said Tuchel.

"I can't wait to start working with all these great players who are all amongst the best in the world. There is extraordinary potential at Paris Saint-Germain and it was by far the most exciting option I had".

Tuchel signed a two-year contract with the French champion, starting in July.

Along with continuing PSG's dominance in France - Emery departs as a domestic treble victor - Tuchel will be under pressure to deliver Champions League success as one of the most highly touted coaching talents in Europe.

However, PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi said on Saturday he was "2000 per cent" sure the Brazil worldwide would stay at the club.

"His ambitious personality, his strong taste for attacking football and his strength of character are part of the style we have always sought at Paris St Germain". Often described as a tactical genius, Tuchel did great things with Bundesliga side Mainz between 2009 and 2014 and the Chelsea and Arsenal target is now looking to bring his skills to bear with the capital club's more affluent means.

However, Tuchel - a modest player whose career was cut short by a knee injury - is not yet proven as a coach at the highest level.

Whoever is PSG's coach in the future, it will all be about winning the Champions League. The Ligue 1 title they secured with a 7-1 thrashing of their closest rival, Monaco, back in April was their fifth in seven seasons since the club was bought by Oryx Qatar Sports Investments.

The Brazilian had two reasons to celebrate on Saturday as he also turned 30, but his attention will be quickly drawn to Real's final La Liga match of the season this weekend as the club take on Villarreal at the Estadio de la Ceramica.
