Coach Mauricio Pochettino can return to the Premier League in the 2022/23 season.

“Mauricio Pochettino has reached an agreement to become manager of Manchester United from next season,” revealed L’Equipe journalist Dominique Severac .

“The management of Man United wants Pochettino, and he is also interested in the plan of this club. However, things can not happen yet, because this is the middle of the season. Negotiations between Pochettino and MU almost done,” Severac added.

Pochettino is leading PSG in Ligue 1 and entering the round of 16 of the Champions League.

After the 2021/22 season, MU will find a head coach and let Mr. Ralf Rangnick change the organization. With long-term experience in the Premier League and modern football philosophy, Pochettino is one of the candidates for the hot seat at Old Trafford.

Before that, the French press repeatedly mentioned that the Argentinian military leader wanted to leave PSG, because he did not have full decision-making power in important jobs. Power in the capital team is still reserved for sports director Leonardo. President Nasser Al-Khelaifi also often appeared in training sessions, and this inadvertently created pressure for Pochettino and his associates.

Pochettino used to have 6 seasons working in the Premier League. His best achievement is helping Spurs win the Champions League 2018/19 runners-up.

In the opposite direction, RMC Sports reported that PSG had persuaded Zinedine Zidane to take the head coach seat. However, the transfer is not instantaneous. Zidane will wait for Pochettino to finish this season with PSG before taking the hot seat at the Parc des Princes.

The person who gave this information, journalist Daniel Riolo, was the first party to report that Lionel Messi joined PSG in the summer of 2021. The prospect of coaching Messi and Neymar is considered an important factor in Zidane’s acceptance of PSG.
