Manchester United have sacked Jose Mourinho, and their search for a long-term replacement will likely have already begun.

Now, according to the usually excellent Times Sport, Mauricio Pochettino wants to be considered for the role at Old Trafford; despite only recently signing a new four-and-a-half year contract at White Hart Lane.

Apparently, the 46-year-old believes the job would be ‘too good to turn down’, although it’d cost United a huge £34million to prise him away from North London.

To hear that he’s interested is brilliant. We’re talking about one of the most forward-thinking managers in the Premier League at the moment – and we only want someone who wants to be here in charge.

Pochettino would bring fresh ideas to the table from the get-go, and his work with young players, at both Spurs and Southampton, deserves huge praise. With talents like Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and many more on his books, the Argentine would have plenty to work with, while his talents would be showcased on the biggest stage.

He’d be my choice, without doubt, but getting him in immediately will be extremely tough. Hence why there is likely to be an interim manager in place until the summer.
