Mauricio Pochettino is under pressure at Tottenham Hotspur on the back of the team’s poor showings this season. There have been reports suggesting that some of the first team players have become tired of the Argentine’s methods (the Athletic).

One man who is arguably under even more pressure than Pochettino is Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the Red Devils have made their worst start to the season in 30 years.

According to the Transfer Window Podcast (as relayed by the Daily Record), Pochettino has now decided that he will soon leave Tottenham and seek a new challenge.

Journalist Duncan Castles, who was on the podcast revealed that a source close to the Spurs manager has spoken of the 47-year-old’s desire to take over at Manchester United.

Castles is quoted as saying, “The information I have from someone close to Pochettino is he has very much targeted a new job.

“In his head, he has made the decision he will be moving on from Tottenham Hotspur.

“I think it’s dependent on how that finishes for him there, whether he sees out the season out or not.

“But he sees that he has run his course at Tottenham and is looking to move to a new club.

“And the club I’m told he is targeting at his next job is Manchester United.”

Pochettino meanwhile has been dismissive of allegations that he is going to leave the club and has insisted that his relationship with Daniel Levy remains strong (Daily Mail).

Spurs Web Opinion:

It is anybody’s guess how reliable Duncan Castles sources are but it wouldn’t make sense for Mauricio Pochettino to walk away from the club now that he has done the hard bit by helping us transition into the new stadium. Daniel Levy proved in the summer that he is ready to back the Argentine and I believe we will see the club regenerate the squad over the next couple of windows.
