Man Utd identified former Tottenham boss as a replacement for Solskajer

Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino is reportedly in talks with Manchester United to replace underfire head-coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer whose future at Old Trafford remains to be up in the air after the defeat with Burnley.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer remains in charge of the 20-time English champions, however, the team’s inconsistency this campaign means that the Norwegian boss’s future at the club continues to be called into question.

The Red Devils are only six points of fourth-placed Chelsea while having a game in hand, although they suffered their eighth league loss of the season away to the Burnley last night.

According to Italian journalist Alfredo Pedulla, the 20-time English champions are in discussions with Pochettino over the possibility of the Argentine replacing Solskjaer at the end of the season.

Pedulla claims that the ex-Tottenham Hotspur boss is prepared to wait until the summer before the agreeing to a new job, although he would demand full control over transfers before deciding to sign for any team.

The 47-year-old manager who was sacked as Tottenham boss back in November 2019 after a lacklustre start to the 2019/20 season, had also been rumoured with a move to Barcelona before Quique Setien was confirmed as Ernesto Valverde’s successor.

The Red Devils will be looking to return to winning ways in the league when they host Wolves.
