PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino is reportedly ready to walk out on PSG and take over at Manchester United.

This comes after the decision was made to relieve Ole Solskjær of his duty following United’s 4-1 defeat at Watford on Saturday with Michael Carrick now taking temporary charge.

Pochettino, who before joining PSG was linked with the United job, has since suffered inconsistent form in France. 

They finished second in the league last season but did win the cup but are now top by 11 points.

But as the search for a successor starts, Daily Mail reports that former Tottenham manager Pochettino is prepared to answer the call.

That is because they claim he is currently living in a hotel in the French capital, while his family still live in England following his six years here. 

He started at Southampton in 2013 and after three years joined Spurs, but was sacked in 2019.

The Argentine will be in Manchester on Tuesday ahead of PSG’s clash with City in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Gary Neville believes the former Tottenham manager would jump at the chance to join United ‘tomorrow’.

Speaking on Sky Sports he said, per the Mirror: “I think Mauricio Pochettino – although he’d never say it – he’d leave to come to Man United on a five-year deal tomorrow.

“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 Man United in terms of a project and that suits Pochettino.

“I think he would absolutely come to Man Utd on a five-year deal, with backing behind him. How he’d fit in with the current coaches who are still there and left, I’m not sure.

“Manchester United have to make sure they get the next one right. Even if that means being patient for six months to wait for managers to become available at the end of the season.”

But it is claimed United have still not made contact with him Pochettino about the vacant job.

However, SunSport understands ex-Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has been approached over the role.

And United are prepared to pay £8million in compensation to his current club, Leicester, on top of a £7.5million payoff for Solskjaer.

Rodgers has a clause in his contract letting him speak to certain clubs if they come knocking — and United are one.

Erik ten Hag, Brendan Rodgers and Zinedine Zidane are just three big names that are also in the running to become United’s new manager.

Although Zidane reportedly has no plan to join the club because of his wife and language barrier.
