Mauricio Pochettino closing in on his next club


Although the Argentine manager prefers to manage Real Madrid, he has grown tired of waiting for an approach from Los Blancos.

Mauricio Pochettino is in advanced conversations with Manchester United over replacing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the club’s manager, reports Don Balon.

The 48-year-old Argentine has been away from the managerial hot seat since being sacked by Tottenham in November last year. His departure from the club was preceded by Pochettino leading Spurs to their 1st-ever Champions League final and three top-four finishes in his final four seasons at the club.

Several reports over the past year have linked him with the Real Madrid job. However, with Los Blancos performing well under Zinedine Zidane – who was reappointed as the club’s boss at the start of last season, the chances of Pochettino replacing the Frenchman appear slim.

Little wonder, then, that news have emerged of the Argentine replacing the under-fire Red Devils’ manager. Solskjaer recently oversaw United dumped out of the Champions League group stage and is currently the bookies’ favorite as the next Premier League manager to be sacked.
