Will Pochettino Be Heading To Old Trafford

This Promotion Has Expired.

As the football season draws to a close the speculation regarding the future of Lois Van Gaal as Manchester United will continue to escalate. The rumour mill suggests that Jose Mourinho is waiting in the wings to succeed LVG but could Paris Saint Germain step in and offer the former Chelsea man another way back into management?

First off there's no indication that Van Gaal will depart Old Trafford this summer. We suspect he may step down before he's pushed, especially after a difficult season! It's possible that Manchester United could still end up with some reasonable success in the shape of an FA Cup and Champions League qualification. If LVG achieves these honours then he goes with some dignity - if he fails then he goes anyway.

The clamour for Mourinho to finally take the Old Trafford hotseat has been running since his Chelsea departure. Bet Victor have him as a 4/9 favourite to be the next permanent Manchester United Manager. Today's news suggests that he's been approached by Paris Saint-Germain to take over as their manager.

If Mourinho decided to take up the French challenge then would Manchester United turn to to replace Van Gaal? Ironically it's the current PSG manager, Laurent Blanc, who's second favourite with Bet Victor. You'll get 4/1 if you choose to back him! Ryan Giggs continues to be touted as a future Manchester United manager and he's currently at 6/1.

The real interest though lies at 8/1 in the shape of current Spurs mananger Mauricio Pochettino. He loves a big challenge and despite his success with Tottenham we think the Old Trafford job would be tempting. Spurs realise that their man is in demand and will be trying to secure his future with an improved contract.

The Old Trafford job is also set up nicely for the next manager. They've got money to spend and have emerging talent in the shape of Marcus Rashford. It's the perfect project for someone like Pochettino. If Spurs fall short of winning the Premier League title then next season will be a lot tougher - and we've already seen from Poch's departure from Southampton that he's not so keen on rebuilding something he's already built.
