Late-night hotel meeting between Mauricio Pochettino and PSG chief about Manchester United job.
Mauricio Pochettino reportedly met with PSG sporting director Leonardo late at night.
Mauricio Pochettino, the manager of Paris Saint-Germain, reportedly met with PSG sporting director Leonardo late last night, amid reports linking him to the Manchester United job.
Pochettino appears to be one of the leading candidates to succeed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United.
Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has been linked with a managerial job in Manchester’s red half.
According to numerous reports, he would welcome a return to the Premier League.
And he’ll be in Manchester, where PSG will face Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City in a tumultuous match.
PSG sporting director Leonardo reportedly traveled to the hotel Pochettino has been staying in for showdown talks, according to L’Equipe.
One of Leonardo’s motivations for meeting the former Southampton manager, according to the French outlet, was to ‘gauge his desires to leave’ and to ‘take the pulse out of the situation.’
Leonardo’s trip to Argentina is an unusual development; according to L’Equipe, the Brazilian could be one of the reasons for Pochettino’s unease.
Before he left the Parc des Princes last year, Thomas Tuchel, the current Chelsea manager, is said to have had a falling out with the PSG president.
Pochettino, on the other hand, is in a different situation than the German, as he went out of his way to state that he is happy at the club right now.
