Manchester United report: Mauricio Pochettino reveals demand club must meet if considering Old Trafford job
Mauricio Pochettino will take the Manchester United job this summer, but only if they quickly make it clear he is their number one target.
It is according to Mail online, which reveals Pochettino refuses to play second fiddle to Ajax manager Erik Ten Hag in the Red Devils’ quest to find a new manager. United are looking for a new boss, after making it clear that caretaker boss Ralf Rangnick is only a temporary option.
Pochettino has long been considered the Premier League club’s No.1 choice but rumors of Ten Hag refuse to die down. the Mail also reported earlier in the season that the Ajax manager had started taking lessons to improve his English, in the belief that he would soon become United’s next manager.
Still, Pochettino wants the job and has reportedly said he will take it, but only if the club make it clear he is their only choice. The former Spurs manager’s stock remains high in England, having led Tottenham to the 2019 Champions League final on a tight budget. The Argentine instilled an exciting and hard-working style of play in the squad of fellow Londoners and United fans have long seen him as the ideal long-term solution.
He is also likely to be available after PSG pulled out of the Champions League this week after the French giants lost a two-goal lead against Real Madrid. If United clarify their position, they will leave Paris at the end of the season.
