Mauricio Pochettino as replacement for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Mauricio Pochettino was one of many managers linked with the Old Trafford post in December when the Red Devils parted ways with Jose Mourinho. United will again try to hire the Argentine as their new manager.

The Argentine  led Spurs to last season’s Champions League final and  has since become frustrated at the start of the new campaign amid the floppy form and the uncertain futures of a number of the club’s star names.

That has led to questions about his future and, according to The Sun, United are now planning a move that would see him replace cold-fire  Solskjaer.

The Norwegian’s position at Old Trafford looks increasingly threatened after a poor start to the season that has already left United many points behind Premier League leaders Liverpool.

However, it is claimed that Pochettino’s five-year deal that was signed at the start of last season does not include any exit clauses.

This means any club wishing to secure his services must pay the rest of his £8.5m-a-year contract, which still has three years and nine months left to run.
