Man United have already found 45-year-old Mourinho’s perfect replacement

November 14, 2017

According to the repots, Tottenham Hotspur head coach Mauricio Pochettino is at the centre of a tug of war between Manchester United and Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain.

The Argentine manager has worked wonders since arriving in North London three-and-a-half-years ago, guiding the Spurs to third and second-place Premier League finishes in the last two seasons.

The 45-year-old Pochettino could be on his way out of the club at the end of the season, however, as The Express claims that both Man United and PSG are keen to prise him away.

Big-spending PSG are understood to be on the lookout for a new boss to replace Unai Emery, whose job is under threat if he fails to guide the Ligue 1 giants to at least the last four of the Champions League.

The Red Devils are bracing themselves for Jose Mourinho’s potential exit, meanwhile, which could – ironically – see the Parisians snap him up if their number-one target becomes available.

Mauricio Pochettino has also been linked with another La Liga giants Real Madrid job in recent weeks after helping Tottenham to a 3-1 win over the European champions earlier this month.
