Paris Saint-Germain may have a readymade replacement if Mauricio Pochettino is lured to Manchester United.
The Telegraph‘s Jason Burt reported that the Ligue 1 leaders have been made aware that former Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane would be keen on the job at the Parc des Princes.
Is Pochettino to United now on?
This could be a crucial development because, according to Foot Mercato journalist Santi Aouna, PSG will let Pochettino go to United if they have a successor lined up for the Argentine. Conveniently, he also says that Zidane is their preferred candidate.
Incidentally, the former Real Madrid boss has himself been ‘repeatedly linked’ with the Red Devils.
No need to wait?
United’s initial plan following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was to appoint an interim manager to lead the team until the end of the season, but it seems as if the prospective appointment of Pochettino could be fast-tracked, with Zidane now said to be waiting in the wings.
Fan feed utdreport relayed Burt’s update, and here’s what a selection of supporters said in response, with many voicing excitement over the potential chain reaction which would see the Argentine coming to Old Trafford soon.
“I’m starting to get excited about our club again”
“This now looks inevitable. we need to get it sorted before Chelsea.”
“Get it done”
“Ok that works. Let’s do that. Everybody wins.”
“It’s all coming together…”
