Determined to secure the services of Mauricio Pochettino, Manchester United have launched their first offensive with PSG to attract the Argentine technician under contract until June 2023. But the capital club seems to have decided to repel the Red Devils.

Less than a year after his arrival on the bench of PSG , Mauricio Pochettino is already engaged in his second soap opera concerning his future. Indeed, while at the end of last season, the Argentine technician would have made the forcing to join Tottenham , it is now announced on the side of Manchester United . The former manager of Southampton and Tottenham has never hidden his intention to one day return to the Premier League where his dream is to coach the Red Devils. And after the dismissal of Ole Gunnar Solskjær , Mauricio Pochettino seems to be the top priority of Mancunian leaders. As revealed exclusively by, PSG should not oppose his departure given the fact that his future is debated. But we still have to find a replacement. The dream of Qatar is called Zinedine Zidane . In the meantime, Mauricio Pochettino is focused on the Champions League meeting between PSG , against the other Manchester club, City. And in a press conference, the native of Murphy was evasive on the subject: “I thought I was clear. I said I have a contract for 2023. This season and next. I'm happy at PSG. It's a fact. It is not debatable, I am happy in Paris. “

PSG rejects Manchester's first approach

But behind the scenes, things are starting to get agitated. Indeed, the Manchester Evening News reveals that the PSG rejected a first approach of Manchester United which seems encouraged in this file by the will of Mauricio Pochettino to land immediately within the Mancunian club. Information confirmed by ESPN which adds, however, that given the refusal of PSG , the Red Devils seem aware that there is much more chance that Mauricio Pochettino arrives at the end of the season. Zinedine Zidane could turn everything upside down by agreeing to join PSG , but this is not the current trend according to information from AS. Therefore, on the side of Manchester United , we are moving towards another option, namely that of the appointment of a coach who would act as interim until the end of the season and the arrival of Mauricio Pochettino . For the moment, Michael Carrick has taken over from Ole Gunnar Solskjær but a more experienced coach should arrive. The name that has come up the most in the English press in recent hours is that of Ernesto Valverde , free since leaving FC Barcelona . Lucien Favre and Ralf Rangnick are also mentioned, as is a certain Rudi Garcia, also available since the end of his adventure at the OL .
