Paris Saint-Germain boss Mauricio Pochettino is reportedly ‘waiting on a formal call’ to be offered the chance to become the next manager of Manchester United. 

According to a report by The Sun, the Argentine is prepared to take the job when the offer arrives.

The former Tottenham Hotspur boss, who moved to France last year, has been heavily linked with the Red Devils ever since the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer earlier this season.

He never joined the club, however, but he is widely expected to succeed current interim boss Ralf Rangnick, who has made a sub-par start to his time in charge of the club.

The German has won just three of his six games in charge and is yet to face any of the traditional ‘top six’, although he is unlikely to be sacked as he is only in charge until June, when he will step back into a directory role.

Rangnick will be involved in selecting his own successor

Pochettino was initially linked with United when Jose Mourinho departed the club, and the Argentine never ruled himself out of the running to take over at Old Trafford.

Now, approaching a year since he arrived in the French capital, it appears that it is only a matter of time before he becomes Manchester United manager.

The former Southampton manager has a strong record in English football, guiding the Saints to a club record Premier League points tally during his first season on the south coast.

At Spurs, however, he excelled even further, challenging for the title in both the 2015/16 and 2016/17 seasons, as well as finishing as runners-up in both the League Cup in 2015 and the Champions League in 2019.

Since moving to France, he has also added a Coupe de France to his honours list.
