Man Utd facing Real Madrid compeition for PSG coach Pochettino

Manchester United face competition from Real Madrid for PSG coach Mauricio Pochettino.

The Daily Mail says Real, along with Tottenham, failed in an attempt to lure Pochettino away from PSG last summer because the French club were unwilling to let the Argentine leave.

But there is a growing sense Pochettino will be obtainable at the end of this season and the Spanish giants remain huge admirers of the ex-Spurs head coach as doubts emerge over Carlo Ancelotti's future at the Bernabeu.

The Real players were jeered by they own supporters during a 3-1 win over Alaves on Saturday amid reports Ancelotti could leave the Spanish capital at the end of the season.

The La Liga club's season climax, in particular how they fare in the Champions League, is likely to have a key bearing on Real's managerial decision ahead of next season.

And president Florentino Perez is set to revive his interest in Pochettino if Ancelotti moves on.

That scenario will run unwanted interference in United's managerial search ahead of next season.
