Mauricio Pochettino is reportedly ready to join Manchester United’s call if they want him to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as manager at Old Trafford.
According to Sportsmail, Pochettino is prepared to quit Paris Saint-Germain and return to the Premier League after Solskjaer was axed on Sunday.
United has already put coach Michael Carrick in charge on a caretaker basis while they look to appoint an interim boss until the end of the season, suggesting that Solskjaer’s permanent replacement may not be installed until the summer.
However, it’s understood that Pochettino is prepared to leave PSG now because he is unhappy in the French capital.
The former Tottenham boss is living in a hotel while his family remains in London, and is said to be frustrated at managing a dressing-room with big egos like Lionel Messi, Neymar, and Kylian Mbappe.
Pochettino was heavily linked with the United job when Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho in December 2018 and is still admired by the Old Trafford hierarchy.
The 49-year-old Argentine will be in England on Tuesday ahead of PSG’s clash with Manchester City in the Champions League on Wednesday. Although the United board is yet to make contact with him on Sunday night.
Ajax boss Erik ten Hag, Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers and Ralf Rangnick are all candidates who would be interested in the United job.
