According to The Manchester Evening News, Mauricio Pochettino wants the Manchester United job.
Pochettino was only sacked by Tottenham last month. But this report indicates that he is eager to get back into work. He is open to taking over from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the helm at Old Trafford.
In the past, Pochettino has been strongly linked with Man United. The Red Devils have tried to prise him away from Spurs but they have enjoyed little success. Could things be about to change?
Pochettino to replace Solskjaer?
Solskjaer’s position as Man United manager is far from secure. With the club sitting in 10th place – eight points off the Champions League places – it could be time for a change.
Pochettino has now become available and he could be considered. If Man United approach the Argentine, he is ready to make an instant return to management, as per this report.
Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to discuss these rumours. Pochettino is still a fan favourite in North London. Here are some tweets discussing the reports suggesting Pochettino wants to take over at Man United.
Better them than Arsenal I suppose

Don’t think this is credible but honestly wouldn’t be a bad move for #poch. Lots of young talent at MU that he could develop. Not sure he is up for dealing with the back office there though…
