Man United’s next manager
Man United face Tottenham in the Premier League on Sunday.
For how much longer will Mauricio Pochettino remain with Spurs?
Following Jose Mourinho’s dismissal from Old Trafford, Pochettino has regularly been named as Man United’s number one target.
Yet securing Pochettino from Spurs is far from straightforward, and several other names are also being linked to the post.
Zinedine Zidane is discussed as the French legend is out of a job following his spell at Real Madrid.
This weekend the Telegraph claimed that England manager Gareth Southgate is another option for United.
While the Mirror have claimed that Diego Simeone, who has been at Atletico Madrid for years, could switch to the Theatre of Dreams.

Betting odds: Mauricio Pochettino 1st, Gareth Southgate 5th
Ladbrokes have slashed their odds by more than half on Gareth Southgate taking the Man United job.
Having been a 25/1 shot yesterday, the bookies now make the England boss just 10/1 for the Old Trafford hot seat on the opening day of next season, meaning only four names are more likely than him to get the job.
Mauricio Pochettino remains 6/4 favourite ahead of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (2/1) but Southgate is by far the biggest market mover of 2019.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Poch may be favourite for the United job, but a Nations League win for Southgate could completely turn the tables in his favour.”
Who will be Man United manager on opening day of next season
Mauricio Pochettino – 6/4
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer – 2/1
Max Allegri – 8/1
Zinedine Zidane – 8/1
Gareth Southgate – 10/1
Eddie Howe – 16/1
