Mauricio Pochettino has been interviewed by Manchester United as part of their search for a new permanent manager, according to footmercato.

 

The Argentinian remains one of the favourites to take over from Ralf Rangnick when the latter leaves his post at the end of the season.

Pochettino has long been linked with the United job but has remained committed to the PSG project ever since he took over from Thomas Tuchel. But, the 50-year-old has had to endure a particularly frustrating time on the touchline this season, despite the 12 point lead in Ligue 1. 

 

PSG went into the season on the back of a historic summer transfer window, bringing in the likes of Sergio Ramos, Achraf Hakimi, Gini Wijnaldum and most notably Lionel Messi. As a result, they were expected to go a lot further than the Round of 16 in the Champions League. 

 

Instead, PSG fell apart in the second leg, allowing Real Madrid talisman Karim Benzema to net a second-half hat-trick.  Pochettino has struggled to imprint his designs over the Parisian outfit, despite the star-studded lineup, and might be tempted by a change of scene. 


United have reportedly already interviewed Erik ten Hag and are also keeping an eye on rival manager Thomas Tuchel amid the uncertainty surrounding Chelsea. Pochettino will be an exciting choice, as his time in England saw him rebuild Tottenham into an extremely competitive side, including leading the North London side to their first-ever Champions League final.
