In recent times, with fans determined #OleOut is the best option for the Club’s future, a few people have been linked to take over from the United Boss. On top of the list is non other than former Tottenham manager, Mauricio Pochettino. The former Spurs Boss has been without a job for months now and sources claim he’s the perfect man for the United job. With the way things are going over at Old Trafford a change in manager might be on the horizon in the near future. It’s possible that Manchester United could replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino at the end of the season. Mauricio Pochettino is said to be interested in the job as Manchester United boss at the end of the season, but have just one itty bitty demand….he wants control over transfers.Yikes!
If you’re a fan of United then you will know that Pochettino’s plan to have control over transfer might not go down so well with Woodward and the Glazer family. The United owners have been reluctant to sign any new comers this transfer window and is yet to find a replacement for Lukaku and Sanchez. Manchester United potential target Mauricio Pochettino has reportedly demanded complete freedom over transfers if he’s to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this summer. The Argentine who has been out of work since being sacked by Tottenham in October seems in no hurry to take on a job if he’s not in full control.
The former Tottenham Hotspur manager has been long admired by the United board and was thought to be their first choice after parting ways with Jose Mourinho midway through last season. Solskjaer earned the full-time gig after impressing as interim manager but has failed to turn United’s fortunes around and the club’s hierarchy are considering their options.
Pochettino and Max Allegri are the top contenders to replace Solskjaer as Manchester United manager, according to Alfredo Pedulla, and talks have already begun with the ex-Spurs and Southampton boss.
And while Pochettino is willing to take control of the club in the summer, he has insisted on having guarantees in place over arrivals at Old Trafford. Recruitment has been a big problem for Manchester United in recent years, with Mourinho’s frustrated response to the failure to deliver top targets being one of the key reasons behind his departure.
They are in danger of leaving Solskjaer short in the second half of the season, with a deal for Bruno Fernandes dragging on and Marcus Rashford’s injury leaving them scrambling for a new striker after being left short of options in attack. Solskjaer’s time at the club may well be up but United will only land their long-term target if they allow him to be heavily involved on the incomings and outgoings.
Manchester United have recently been charged by the Football Association for failing to conduct themselves in an orderly fashion during their Premier League defeat against Liverpool on Sunday.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side were beaten 2-0 by the league leaders thanks to goals from Virgil van Dijk and Mohamed Salah and it could have been worse had it not been for VAR ruling out a Roberto Firmino effort in the first half.
United currently sit 5th in the EPL table with 34 points, 30 points under 1st place Liverpool.
