PSG stars think new manager is ‘imminent’ with Pochettino in talks with Man Utd

Some of Paris Saint Germain's players believe the arrival of a new manager is 'imminent' with Mauricio Pochettino linked with the newly available Manchester United job.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was finally sacked on Sunday after a humiliating 4-1 defeat to Watford, and Pochettino has been named as the favourite to take over at United following previous links to Old Trafford.

For now, Michael Carrick has taken charge while United hunt for a new man to lead the club, with Zinedine Zidane also expected to be in the mix.

However, according to reports, star's inside the PSG dressing room believe that the Frenchman may be heading elsewhere.

According to Marca, PSG's players believe Zidane becoming their new manager is 'imminent', with Pochettino apparently keen to take over at United, and this has been escalated due to reports that the Frenchman has turned down an approach from bosses at Old Trafford.

Zidane is still hailed in France for his heroics in the national team, making it a poetic move to PSG should Pochettino head elsewhere, and it could even convince Kylian Mbappe to stay against all the odds.

Marca's report goes on to say that PSG's stars have already been privately discussing the possibility of Zidane taking over at the club in the coming weeks, with the Frenchman an icon across the nation.

The managerial shake-up makes sense as Pochettino is reportedly prepared to walk away from PSG because he is supposedly unhappy, and the Argentinian has been living in a hotel in the French capital while his family remain in London.

This could spell a return to the Premier League after leaving Tottenham in 2018, and Pochettino was previously linked with United upon his exit from Spurs.

Pochettino was in the running to take over at Old Trafford back in 2018, but it was Solskjaer that took on the role, and the club could go for the Argentinian this time around in a desperate attempt to restore United to their former glory.
