Mauricio Pochettino 'Ready To Quit' Paris Saint-Germain And Become Manchester United Manager

Mauricio Pochettino is ready leave Paris Saint-Germain and become Manchester United's new manager following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Solskjaer was relieved of his duties on Sunday, a day removed from a humiliating 4-1 defeat at the hands of Watford, and gave an emotional final interview to MUTV.

Michael Carrick, part of the coaching team at United since his retirement in 2018, is to take charge of the next batch of games as caretaker boss.

Rumours have been swirling as to who United want to replace Solskjaer and according to multiple outlets, Pochettino is the top target for the Red Devils.

And the Daily Mail say that he would be willing to return to English football with United during the middle of the campaign.

Pochettino took the reins at PSG earlier this year and signed a new contract until 2023 in July.

However, he is said to be prepared to leave the Parc des Princes before that deal expires - having not quite settled in the French capital.

The 49-year-old's family are still based in London after his stint at Spurs and he is residing in a Paris hotel.

PSG are currently nine points clear at the top of Ligue One but Pochettino has reportedly grown frustrated with the big egos amongst his squad.

He was one of the names in the frame to take the job at United back in December 2018 when Jose Mourinho was sacked. United appointed Solskjaer as interim boss and then gave him the role full-time following a strong start.

Sir Alex Ferguson is believed to view the Argentine as the preferred candidate ahead of the likes of Zinedine Zidane, Brendan Rodgers, Erik ten Hag and Ralf Rangnick.
