Pochettino ready to quit PSG for Manchester United – Report

Paris Saint-Germain coach Mauricio Pochettino is ready to assume the reins at Manchester United if the opportunity arises, according to a new report.

This comes bare a day after Ole Gunnar Solksjaer was fired following a string of poor performances culminating in the 4-1 defeat at Watford.

While the Norwegian was replaced by Michael Carrick, Pochettino is understood to be the favourite for the job on a permanent basis.

The former Tottenham boss was a heavy favourite for the Red Devils job after Jose Mourinho was relieved of his position in December 2018 and is still hugely admired by some top officials at Old.

Interestingly, the Argentine will be in Manchester on Tuesday ahead of his team’s clash with Manchester City in the Champions League on Wednesday; however,  United are yet to make any official contact with him.

Also in support of the 49-year-old taking charge at United is a club legend, Gary Neville who claimed Pochettino wouldn’t think twice at the job offer

“I think Mauricio Pochettino – although he’d never say it – would leave to come to Man Utd on a five-year deal tomorrow,” Neville said in an interview with Skysports.

“He’d look at that group of players, he’d look at the club and he’d realise he’d probably be able to achieve more than he wants at Manchester United in terms of a project.”

Pochettino has also been said to be increasingly frustrated at managing a dressing-room with big egos like Lionel Messi, Neymar, and Kylian Mbappe and would love out of the club.

Also in the running for the job are Ajax boss, Erik ten Hag, who has been reported to be unavailable until the summer and Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers.
