Mauricio Pochettino will only take Old Trafford job on one sensational condition

Manchester United are set to bring Mauricio Pochettino back to England this summer, but the Argentine has one big demand

Manchester United will look to make PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino their new manager this summer, but will have to sign Harry Kane as well in order to convince the Argentine to join.

That is according to reports in the Telegraph, who believe Pochettino is interested in the Old Trafford job, but would need a statement signing from the club to leave the French juggernauts.

United are yet to make any official announcement on their managerial plans this summer, with Ralf Rangnick in charge on an interim basis until then.

The German has hinted that he might wish to continue in the role – instead of taking on a proposed “advisory” position – but results have not been altogether positive since the 63-year-old took over from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer back in November.

Pochettino is seen by many as the ideal long-term candidate. The former Tottenham manager instilled an attacking and attractive style of play on a budget at Spurs, and has a clear playing philosophy which could be implemented across the club.

The 49-year-old has a contract to run with PSG until June 2023, but has occasionally cut a frustrated figure at the Ligue 1 leaders.

Pochettino’s management style relies on a collective effort, but the French club are known for their reliance on individuals, with the likes of Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar all vying for centre stage.

There were reports that United has tempted to lure Pochettino to Manchester before appointing Rangnick in late November, with PSG apparently open to allowing him leave for the right price.

Kane, meanwhile, made his desire to leave Spurs clear in the summer. He handed in a formal transfer request following a £100m offer from Manchester City.

After failing to force a move, he has been in poor form this term, scoring just five goals in 20 Premier League appearances so far.

If Manchester United get their wish, Kane and Pochettino – who worked together for almost five seasons at White Hart Lane between 2014 and 2019 – could team up again at Old Trafford.

Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea set to battle it out for Atletico Madrid forward

Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea are all set to battle it out for Atletico Madrid forward Joao Felix.

Felix has endured a difficult start to the season for Atletico and is yet to score in five starts in the league.

Last season wasn’t much better for Felix, only managing 24 league starts.
With competition up top including French international Antoine Griezmann, Felix is often used as a rotation option under Diego Simeone.

Now, according to Fichajes, a move to the Premier League could be on the cards, with Manchester United, Chelsea, and Arsenal all interested in signing the striker.

Both Manchester United and Chelsea will need to find a long-term replacement for their current first-choice strikers.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are both reaching the latter stage of their careers for their respective clubs, so bringing a player with a similar age profile to Felix would be a smart move.

A move to Arsenal may not benefit Felix’s development as much, with Gabriel Jesus performing exceptionally well for the North London club and still only 25 years old.

Manchester United and fellow Premier League clubs are counting down the days until they can strike-up further business in the transfer market. Erik ten Hag welcomed six players to Old Trafford during his first window and they have all made their mark in the starting XI.

Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez have all quickly become mainstays, while Antony broke a record set by Zlatan Ibrahimovic when he scored on Sunday night. That 2-1 victory over Everton also saw former Real Madrid player Casemiro handed his first Premier League start for the club.

Martin Dubravka was the other recruit, signing on a season-long loan from Newcastle.

With one eye on January and future windows, meanwhile, United are understood to still have Frenkie de Jong on their radar, while elite clubs from across Europe will be queuing up for Jude Bellingham should he decided to leave Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund in the near transfer window.

Bellingham plays alongside plenty of Chelsea stars on the international stage with England, so let’s hope they can put in a good word to try tempt him to the Bridge.

He’s an all – action central midfielder that offers so much both offensively and defensively.
