With Sunday's breaking news that Manchester United finally made the tough decision to sack Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, rumors have been swirling about who could possibly end up replacing him at Old Trafford.
Well, what about Mauricio Pochettino? Multiple reports are stating that Poch has become United's No. 1 target, even if he's still leading things over at Paris Saint-Germain. Per Sky Sports, though, Pochettino isn't totally happy in Paris and he's eyeing the United job. Could something be in the works here soon?

The interest between United and Pochettino is apparently so high, PSG has reached out to Zinedine Zidane to see if he'd be interested in taking over the club if Pochettino does indeed bolt for the English Premier League.
Zidane reportedly turned down the opportunity to try and lead Man United, as his family doesn't speak English and a move to England isn't in the cards. With that said, the French legend could have interest in taking over the Parisian side.
This all depends on whether or not Pochettino indeed decides he wants to return to the EPL to take over Man United. United has loads of young talent and the future sure feels bright for this club. With that said, Solskjaer wasn't getting things done.
Poch could really help turn things around. Fans are calling for the team to do whatever is needed to get him to Old Trafford. Now, we must wait and see if United can pull this off. It'd be a massive move by the EPL giants.
