Pochettino is Ferguson’s pick to supplant Mourinho at Man Utd
Legendary Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has chosen who he needs to be the club’s new director next season.
Mauricio Pochettino is the man picked, as indicated by The Sun. The Argentine has always been to Ferguson’s taste and the two have dined together in London before.
For the present, after the sacking of Jose Mourinho, United will be led by former striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer until the end of the season.
Be that as it may, United are taking a shot at a long haul plan and it appears Tottenham mentor Pochettino is their best target. Signing him will not be cheap, though, with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy wanting 45 million euros.
That was the figure announced when Real Madrid’s interest surfaced (after Pochettino had marked another arrangement) and it’s impossible an immediate adversary in the Premier League would be able to pay less.
