United ‘want Poch’
In case you are an early bedder here’s a reminder of the big breaking news last night…
Manchester United are reportedly looking to replace under-fire Jose Mourinho with Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino at the end of the season.
The mooted deal would set the Old Trafford club back £40million, although if the Red Devils miss out on Champions League football this season then they will not have to pay Mourinho a severance package.
Mourinho has struggled to impress the United board this season, with his side floundering down in eighth – 18 points behind leaders Manchester City.
Pochettino’s Tottenham meanwhile are sitting pretty in third, 10 points ahead of the Red Devils, and in a prime position to qualify for the Champions League.
