Laliga giants Real Madrid will battle Manchester United for the services of manager Mauricio Pochettino.
The Argentine is said not to be happy at PSG and will probably leave in the summer with United the favorites to land his services.
There were reports that Madrid asked about the availability of Pochettino last summer but went for Carlo Ancelotti after it became clear that the manager wasn’t keen on joining them as he wanted to finish his project with PSG.
The Mail now reports that Madrid might go back for the Argentine should he eliminate the club in the Champions League with the French giants currently leading by a solitary goal in the knockout stage against the Europan giants.

United are currently in the market for a manager to permanently replace Ole Gunnar Solsjaer who was sacked by the club earlier in the season; their current interim manager Ralf Rangnick is set to be handed a new role when the season ends.
Pochettino alongside Ajax’s Erik ten Hag is believed to be a front runner for the position at OldT Trafford, but interest from the Spanish capital could complicate United’s pursuit.
