MANCHESTER UNITED faces a bat­tle to land Paris Saint-Ger­main boss Mauri­cio Pochet­ti­no, accord­ing to reports.

The Red Dev­ils are yet to decide whether to stay with care­tak­er man­ag­er Ralf Rang­nick or turn in anoth­er direction.

And one of the alter­na­tive options to Rang­nick is Pochet­ti­no, who was linked with the job when Ole Gun­nar Sol­skjer was sacked late last year.

But accord­ing to the Dai­ly Mail, Unit­ed could face com­pe­ti­tion from Real Madrid for Pochet­ti­no, who could be ‘obtain­able’ this summer.

Despite sit­ting at the top of La Liga, doubts are emerg­ing over Car­lo Ancelot­ti’s long-term future at the Bernabeu.

Real’s play­ers were mocked by their own fans in a 3–1 win over Alaves on Saturday.

And how Real’s fair­ness in the Cham­pi­ons League could decide Ancelot­ti’s future at Real.

At the moment, it does­n’t look good for the Ital­ian as Real trail PSG 1–0 ahead of the sec­ond leg of their Round of 16 clash.

If Real drop Ancelot­ti, Pochet­ti­no — who they tried to appoint in the sum­mer — is an option for the Span­ish giants.

Reignit­ing their inter­est in Pochet­ti­no would be an unwant­ed inter­fer­ence in the search for their next manager.

Unit­ed have options though, with Ajax boss Erik ten Hag one of the top con­tenders for the job.
