The appointment of Mauricio Pochettino by Manchester United could aid in the resolution of the Thomas Tuchel situation at Chelsea.
In recent weeks, Mauricio Pochettino has been connected with the vacant Manchester United manager’s position.
Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel could reap the benefits of Mauricio Pochettino’s likely appointment as Manchester United’s new permanent manager in the near future. The former Tottenham manager, who took command of Paris Saint-Germain at the start of this year, is thought to be a target for the Red Devils.
Pochettino has reportedly expressed interest in joining United after becoming dissatisfied with his current post at the Ligue 1 giants.
At the Parc des Princes, the 49-year-old is solely engaged as a head coach, with sports director Leonardo in charge of the club’s wider footballing matters.
His family also stayed in London after he joined PSG in January, implying that a return to the Premier League is a distinct possibility.
Pochettino is reported to be United’s top target to follow Solskjaer, who was dismissed of his duties on Sunday morning.
They are apparently seeking for an interim manager until the conclusion of the season before pursuing the services of PSG manager Thomas Tuchel in the summer.
However, it is unclear whether United will abandon their short-term strategy if a transfer for Pochettino can be arranged quickly.
If the Red Devils are successful in acquiring the Argentine coach, they may accidentally assist Chelsea in achieving one of their most crucial transfer targets, which was left unfulfilled over the summer.
Tuchel has been linked with a move for a world-class right wing-back to bolster his team’s defensive ranks before the transfer window closes.
The Blues attempted to sign Inter Milan’s Achraf Hakimi but were unsuccessful despite making at least one high-profile bid to the Italian champions.
After deciding to join Pochettino at PSG, Hakimi has established himself as a regular starter under his new manager’s leadership.
However, if Pochettino left Paris, Chelsea may be able to re-enter the race for Hakimi ahead of next season.
The defender recently claimed that Pochettino affected his decision to reject a Blues move, implying that he may be swayed by a renewed approach if United opt to raid PSG in their quest for a new manager.
“When I received offers from PSG and Chelsea, I felt I had no choice but to move to Paris, where I would be pleased,” Hakimi explained. “Brinkwire News Summary.”
