Manchester United fans have been given an interesting story to discuss over their evening pints, with suggestions of movement towards a brilliant managerial appointment.
BBC reporter Dan Walker has stated three separate sources have informed him that Manchester United are moving towards grabbing Mauricio Pochettino from rivals Tottenham Hotspur, in what would be a significant coup.
The Red Devils look extremely likely to relieve Louis Van Gaal of his duties before next season and Pochettino, who has worked wonders with Tottenham during a two-year stint in North London, is emerging as a leading candidate.
Since moving from Southampton to Spurs, Pochettino has developed a struggling North London side into leading top-four contenders and within grasp of the Premier League title; assembling a bright squad that’s full of future stars.
The impact of young players like Dele Alli and Harry Kane into the Spurs set-up is likely to be extremely appealing to United officials, who pride themselves in doing similar, and Pochettino could be the ideal man to get the Red Devils back on track.
Our landlord has suggested this would be a major possibility for Pochettino, as he’d be given a much heftier transfer budget at Old Trafford and a lucrative contract that Spurs are unlikely to be able to match.
