Manchester United Eyes Pochettino Replacement for Ole Solskjaer

Manchester United Plans Mauricio Pochettino replacement for Ole Solskjaer, who has so far had a poor coaching time at Old Trafford.

Reports from the Sun claims that United are ready to swoop for Tottenham boss and are willing to pay heavily for the privilege

Pochettino is undergoing one of the toughest runs in all of his time in north London, with Spurs struggling for form after reaching the heights of the Champions League final in 2018-19. 

But that slump will not deter United, who would be prepared to meet the £32 million ($39.4m) buyout clause in the Argentine’s contract in order to bring him to Old Trafford.

The Norwegian’s position at Old Trafford looks increasingly fragile after a poor start to the season that has already left United 10 points behind Premier League leaders Liverpool.

Poor performances against Rochdale, West Ham and Astana in their last three games have also left fans frustrated while the club’s failure to sign a replacement for Romelu Lukaku in the summer has left them short of options in attack.

However, it is claimed that Pochettino’s five-year deal that was signed at the start of last season does not include any exit clauses.

This means any club wishing to secure his services must pay the rest of his £8.5m-a-year contract, which still has three years and nine months left to run. 

The Argentine was one of many managers linked with the Old Trafford post in December when the Red Devils parted ways with Jose Mourinho. However, he stayed put and led Spurs to last season’s Champions League final.
