The Red Devils struggled to lure the Argentine away from PSG before hiring Ralf Rangnick as their interim manager until the end of the season.
The German will begin working as a consultant at Old Trafford in the summer, and the Premier League club will need to appoint a new permanent manager for the upcoming season.
Pochettino remains a candidate for the job, according to Sport, who state that the Manchester club is still ‘interested in him.’ The ex-Tottenham Hotspur manager, though, is not interested and has ‘previously turned down’ United. This is because the 49-year-old is ‘waiting for Real Madrid.’
Carlo Ancelotti is presently in command at the Bernabéu, and if the club fails to win any trophies this season, he may be relieved of his duties.
Los Blancos are six points ahead of second-placed Sevilla in the league table. To advance to the Champions League quarter-finals, they must overcome a 1-0 deficit against PSG.
Pochettino is well aware that if he does not achieve success this season, he will be forced to leave Paris. For the time being, he is very attentive to what the Spanish giants are doing, and the chance to manage them may occur if Ancelotti is shown the departure door.
To summarize, according to Sport, the South American has rejected Manchester United and is waiting for Real Madrid.
