Press reports revealed that Manchester United will work to convince Argentine coach Mauricio Pochettino that he is their first choice to take over the position of coach in the coming period, especially after the Paris team’s exit from the Champions League.
The Paris Saint-Germain coach was linked to a move to “Old Trafford”, with current Ajax coach, Erik ten Hag, as club officials are looking to appoint a long-term coach before the summer, after the period of the current interim coach, Ralph Rangnick.
After Paris Saint-Germain’s dramatic exit from the Champions League after a 3-2 aggregate defeat by Real Madrid on Wednesday, new doubts arose about Pochettino’s future in Paris.
Reports stated, that in the event that Pochettino faced sacking from the French club, this would free United to offer quick negotiations to the Argentine, as the coach needs persuasion.
According to the newspaper, the 50-year-old wants to be reassured that he is at the top of the list of candidates to be considered for this role; ahead of Tin Hag.
Manchester United hosts Tottenham in the English Premier League tomorrow, Saturday, as they look to rise again to the top four, after the 4-1 defeat against Manchester City last weekend, which made them drop to fifth place.
