Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly adamant that Mauricio Pochettino will be going nowhere mid-season, amid speculation he is ready to return to the Premier League and replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Old Trafford.
Although contact has yet to be made, the Ligue 1 leaders will be aware of United’s interest in their manager, but The Telegraph believes PSG do not plan to replace Pochettino until the summer.
A lot of fans have been hoping that Zinedine Zidane would take over from the Argentine in Paris, but Spanish outlet AS claim the former Real Madrid manager doesn’t want the job at the moment.
Zidane’s decision was always bound to impact a switch that would see Pochettino at United before Christmas, so without that happening, we’ll be made wait until the summer for a permanent manager.
Former Lyon boss Rudi Garcia is the latest to be linked with the job on an interim basis, as per The National.
It’s far from ideal but now United’s quest must turn to finding the right interim coach to take the reins for the remainder of the season.
The Reds booked their place in the last 16 of the Champions League with a 2-0 win over Villarreal on Tuesday night.
That gives the next manager a chance at European glory, albeit with an almighty task on his hands to get more out of our current squad.
