Mauricio Pochettino ‘interviewed’ for Manchester United Job

According to rumours, Manchester United has interviewed PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino for the permanent role at Old Trafford.

Last week, Ajax manager Erik ten Hag met with Reds executives and pleased them enough to become the favored candidate, according to the Manchester Evening News. The MEN also reported that United was planned additional negotiations with the Eredivisie winner.

Ajax came from behind to beat Feyenoord prior to the international break, while the Parisians are comfortably top of Ligue 1 despite their recent hiccup.

According to Metro, the former Spurs coach has been sat down ahead of a possible summer appointment. In the aftermath of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s dismissal, the Argentine was extensively associated with the job, but United were forced to employ Ralf Rangnick on an interim basis by the French club.

Pochettino has been connected with the Tottenham Hotspur manager’s job in the past, but has twice been beaten to it, first by Jose Mourinho in 2016 and then by Ole Gunnar Solskajer two years later.

Meanwhile, Lazio’s Sergej Milkinovic-Savic is said to be on the Reds’ radar. According to the Italian publication Il Tempo, both United and PSG are interested in signing the Serbian.

According to the report, the 27-year-skull old’s has been stamped with a €70 million (£58 million) price tag. After recognizing midfield as one of their difficulties, the Reds are aiming to improve their ranks.
