Telefoot says United could have had their man this month if two terms were met.
PSG would have let Pochettino leave if United stumped up £17million to buy him out of his current contract – which runs until June 2023.
Once the financial condition had been agreed, PSG would have only sanctioned the move as long as Zinedine Zidane was ready to step in and take over from the Argentine as boss.
While a move for Pochettino never came to fruition this month, it is likely that United will hold talks with the former Spurs boss at the end of the season when their search for a permanent manager begins.
