Man Utd to replace Solskjaer with Pochettino if top-four finish is not achieved

According to a report by Daily Express, Manchester United will continue with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the manager – provided he can secure a top-four finish that would guarantee a spot in next season’s Champions League.

However, as per Goal (h/t Daily Express), failure to do so might prompt the hierarchy to turn to former Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino, who has been touted as a preferred target.

Ed Woodward

Since United’s chiefs have already backed Solskjaer – coupled with the recent change in fortunes – they are willing to see how things fare until the end of the season, as per Daily Express.

Right now, securing a Champions League spot remains a top priority. If we are able to do so, United would receive a £50million boost. And Ed Woodward recently admitted that the funds would be utilized to bring new players in the upcoming summer transfer window.

We are currently 3 points behind fourth-placed Chelsea, meaning we do have a solid chance of making it. In addition, United could also secure promotion to the coveted Champions League by winning the Europa League title.

Pochettino, meanwhile, has been out of a job since leaving Tottenham last year. During his time, he transformed the North Londoners from being an average mid-table club to title contenders and even guided them to the final of the Champions League last season.
