PSG respond to the Glazers’ initial approach, dealing a blow to Mauricio Pochettino.
Manchester United’s top managerial goal may have to wait until the summer.
Paris Saint-Germain has rejected Manchester United’s initial approach for Mauricio Pochettino. After sacking Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Sunday, the Glazers may have to wait until the conclusion of the season to choose their desired manager.
Adidas and Manchester United have unveiled the official 202122 home jersey, which has a futuristic take on the club’s classic designs.
PSG has reportedly turned down United’s request for Pochettino’s immediate availability, according to ESPN.
According to reports, the Ligue 1 giants are unwilling to talk, owing to the fact that they presently do not have a replacement lined up.
According to the Manchester Evening News, United officials have been pleased by Pochettino’s willingness to switch from Paris to Manchester in the middle of the season.
But, for the time being, PSG has made it clear that the Argentine is not for sale as they focus on recovering the Ligue 1 title and winning the Champions League.
United’s decision to employ an interim manager till the conclusion of the season may be forced by the Parisiens’ position.
Ernesto Valverde, who left Barcelona in the summer, and Rudi Garcia, who left Lyon in the summer, have recently met with the club.
According to ESPN, United is also considering Lucien Favre as a temporary replacement.
The Swiss coach was fired by Borussia Dortmund in December and has been unemployed since.
If Pochettino’s arrival at Old Trafford is ruled out in the coming weeks, United may opt to keep Michael Carrick in command until May.
After Solskjaer’s departure, Carrick took over as manager and managed an important win against Villarreal on Tuesday.
United won 2-0 in Spain thanks to goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho, clinching a place in the Champions League last 16 in the process.
However, United must travel to Chelsea on Sunday before facing Arsenal in midweek, putting Carrick and his colleagues to the test.
PSG may be willing to let Pochettino go if they have a replacement in mind – enter Zinedine Zidane.
The Frenchman had no desire to take over as United’s manager, but he would definitely be enticed by the biggest job in his homeland.
The dominoes could fall into place if he decides to extend his sabbatical until the end of the season. “Brinkwire News Summary.”
