Mauricio Pochettino is inclined to leave Paris Saint-Germain in the coming weeks to take over the Manchester United team, reports The Manchester Evening News.
According to reports from British journalists, Pochettino is still open to establishing cooperation with the club from Old Trafford, with which he has been linked many times in the past. As we read, the Argentine is ready to leave PSG and join MU now, so as not to wait for the season to end.
Pochettino’s willingness to try his hand at Old Trafford is to be really big. In the past, a contract with Tottenham stood in the way of his move there. Admittedly, he now has an important contract with PSG, but the situation is somewhat different. The job as coach for the Paris team was not a job Pochettino intended to take on when he left London two years ago. From the very beginning, he wanted to stay in the Premier League.
The initial plan by the MU authorities to fire Ole Gunnar Solskjær was to hire an interim manager by the end of the season, but if there was an opportunity to contract Pochettino in the coming weeks, it would probably be welcomed.
Of course, PSG will not release the Argentinian without his successor prepared. By combining the reports of various sources, it can be concluded that Zinédine Zidane, who is interested in Parisians, could help in this matter.
The French was also associated with Manchester United, but he is not interested in working for an English club.
UPDATE: Santi Aoun also says that Pochettino wants to return to England – he wanted it already in the summer. For the time being, however, he has not officially asked PSG for permission to leave. The first contacts between Parisians and Zidane were established a long time ago. His employment is the dream of the French runner-up.
