PSG reject opening Man Utd offer for Pochettino but will return with a second

Manchester United are not deterred after their initial approach for Mauricio Pochettino was turned down and will reportedly make a second play for the Argentine coach, only in the summer.

The Red Devils board are searching for a new manager to take over at the Old Trafford dugout, with former Tottenham boss Pochetttino thought to be the number one target.

But according to SunSport, Paris Saint-Germain have rebuked United’s initial approach, so they will be gathering themselves for a second round of discussions.

United sacked Ole Gunnar Soskjaer following the side’s poor Premier League display against Watford where they lost 4-1 at Vicarage Road.

Leading the line to replace the Norwegian are Pochettino and Leicester City’s Brendan Rodgers.

Former manager and club director Sir Alex Ferguson is a close friend of Pochettino, while reports suggested that the 49-year-old is unhappy with his family living in London while he’s in Paris.

It is thought that Pochettino would relish a chance to take up the reins at the northwest club, despite his recent conference suggesting that he’s happy in the French capital.
