Tottenham have got a major asset in the form of their world class manager, Mauricio Pochettino, but the question is, how long will they be able to hold on to him?
According to an exclusive report covered by The Sun, Man Utd are ready to move to secure the signature of the unsettled Argentine boss and £32million would be enough to hire his services.
Last season, the Red Devils struggled under the management of Jose Mourinho and therefore, the club sacked the Portuguese manager and hired club legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to replace him.
The Norwegian boss did brilliantly well during his interim tenure with the Old Trafford club but ever since he signed a permanent deal, United have been highly inconsistent and average.
In the summer transfer window, we splashed a lot of cash to sign Harry Maguire, Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka. Still, the results have not improved. At the moment, we are 11th in the table (with a game in hand) and (in all fairness) already out of the title race with league leaders Liverpool 13 points ahead.
It will be fair to say that we were lucky to beat a weak team like Rochdale in the Carabao Cup. So, if things do not improve quickly, then Solskjaer should be shown the exit door and Pochettino, would be a quality man to replace him.
Last season, without securing any major signing, the former Southampton manager, who earns (The Sun) £8.5m-a-year (£163,000-a-week), led Tottenham to their first Champions League final.
Under Pochettino’s guidance, the north Londoners have regularly qualified for the Europe’s elite competition and Man Utd need someone like him at the helm.
