Having showed the exit door to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the weekend, Manchester United now need a new manager.

Mauricio Pochettino reportedly tops the Red Devils’ list, and him saying he’s happy at Paris Saint-Germain has made little difference.

According to AS, the 49-year-old is a ‘priority’ target for the Premier League side and they can only bring him to Old Trafford if PSG ‘release the Argentine’.

The Ligue 1 side are ‘only willing to agree’ to allow their manager to leave if they can replace him with Zinedine Zidane, who has been without a job since leaving Real Madrid at the end of last season.

It’s said the Paris club are finding it hard to convince Zidane to join them. Although he is ‘flattered’ with the interest, ‘it seems complicated’ for him to arrive at PSG as he is ‘not entirely convinced’ to take a new job during the course of the season.

The English club are convinced the former Tottenham Hotspur coach will manage them, either now or in the future. Pochettino loves the idea of managing in the Premier League, but will not force an exit from PSG.

Zidane’s stance, for now, makes it ‘complicated’ and has ‘absolutely blocked’ United from appointing Pochettino as their new manager.

PSG will try to offer a lucrative deal to Zidane, while the English club must compensate the French giants to hire the South American. If this doesn’t work out, United will look to hire an interim manager until the end of this campaign.
