Manchester United are confident of appointing Mauricio Pochettino as their next manager

According to journalist Samuel Luckhurst, Manchester United are now convinced to hire Mauricio Pochettino as their next manager and will soon make an official inquiry. The Argentine is the frontrunner to succeed Ole Gunnar Solskjær, and he is interested in taking over immediately.

Manchester United have so far endured a terrible campaign as they have played 12 matches while winning five matches, drawing twice and losing five of their matches so far in the Premier League. The Manchester club has suffered humiliating defeats to Liverpool, Manchester City and Watford in recent weeks, and Ole Gunnar Solskjær was finally released from his position on Sunday morning after the shocking defeat at Vicarage Road.

Reports have indicated that Erik ten Hag, Mauricio Pochettino and Brendan Rodgers are among the frontrunners to take the vacant hot seat at Old Trafford, but it was speculated that the trio would be reluctant to leave their respective clubs mid-season. However, according to Samuel Luckhurst, Mauricio Pochettino is ready to leave his position as Paris Saint Germain manager and join the Red Devils on a permanent basis immediately.

But PSG are demanding a sum of £ 10 million in compensation for the Argentine, as they appear to be bringing in Zinedine Zidane as their replacement. Pochettino’s willingness to return to England and take charge at Old Trafford has warned the United board, which originally planned to hire a temporary manager before turning to the summer. Now the United board must act quickly as they only have a handful of matches in the league with a chance to secure Champions League qualification.
