Manchester United considering Mauricio Pochettino swoop, manager keen on move

Manchester United could consider appointing Mauricio Pochettino, with the Argentine reportedly keen on the move to Old Trafford. 

According to The Independent, Manchester United are considering appointing Mauricio Pochettino as their next manager. The Argentine only left Chelsea days ago and could be open to a move to Old Trafford, as Erik ten Hag’s future hangs by the thread. 

Mauricio Pochettino to Manchester United?

Manchester United could decide on their managerial position soon after the FA Cup Final against Manchester City. Regardless of what happens in that game, the club is currently looking to replace Erik ten Hag and has already begun considering potential replacement options. 

Ten Hag has ended a difficult season, during which Manchester United broke some unwanted records, making their season one of the worst the fans can remember. However, there’s a section that points towards the many injuries the Dutchman had to deal with and would like for him to have another chance. 

Meanwhile, as Manchester United makes its decision, it is considering Mauricio Pochettino as an option. The Argentine’s links to Old Trafford are nothing new, as he was linked with the job before Ten Hag took over and was a running candidate then. As things stand, the report states that the 52-year-old former Chelsea manager could be open to the switch. 

Only a few days ago, Pochettino left Chelsea with ‘mutual consent’ and could soon find himself in the dugout of another big Premier League side if the Manchester United links were reliable. For now, all eyes will be on Manchester United and their call with Ten Hag’s future. 

Will Manchester United sack Ten Hag?

Ten Hag had a decent first season, helping the club finish in third spot and making their return to the Champions League. However, the following season did not go according to plan, as the Dutchman had to endure a host of injuries, which ended up derailing their campaign on all fronts. 

Names like Zinedine Zidane have been linked, although there’s an argument to be made about Ten Hag to give him another season in the hotseat. However, a decision could be forthcoming after the FA Cup Final, which could see the Dutchman depart Old Trafford.
