Mauricio Pochettino to Manchester United 'almost done' - reports from France claim

Paris Saint-German manager Mauricio Pochettino to join Manchester United at the end of the season after reports in France claim the deal is ‘almost done’.

Man United are expected to search for a new manager in the summer to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who was sacked in November after failing to put a stop to United’s poor run of form.

Ralf Rangnick is the current Manchester United boss but it’s only on a temporary basis.

The former RB Leipzig manager has really not made any notable change at Old Trafford, with the players struggling to adapt to his philosophy.

Also, Rangnick also has eyes on becoming one of the club’s chiefs at the end of the season, which gives Manchester United a better reason to search for a permanent manager to replace Solskjaer.

The likes of Erik ten Hag and Mauricio Pochettino are touted as the leading candidates to become Solskjaer’s replacement at the Theatre of Dreams.

Reports emerged this week that the Ajax boss, ten Hag, is the leading candidate to become United’s next permanent boss but a report from France has claimed otherwise.

According to Le Parisien, via Canal Supporters, Manchester United want Mauricio Pochettino and the PSG boss wants a move to United.

The report claims that the Argentine boss, who was a target to replace Jose Mourinho in 2019, is United’s priority and the deal between both parties is ‘almost done’.

Last year, the former Tottenham manager admitted that he’s happy at PSG, limiting United’s chance to appointing Ralf Rangnick as interim boss after ten Haag also refused to leave Ajax midway through the season.
