According to talkSPORT via Metro, Mauricio Pochettino is keen to return to the Premier League but would rather take back the reins at old club Tottenham.

Manchester United are keen on making the Paris Saint-Germain boss the next permanent manager but could now be forced to look at other options.

Ajax boss Erik ten Hag is the other manager on the shortlist but the Red Devils have made Pochettino the preferred choice due to his Premier League experience after managing Southampton and Tottenham Hotspur.

Despite preferring the Tottenham Hotspur job, Pochettino will reportedly accept the Manchester United job if it is offered to him.
