MANCHESTER UNITED are considering Thomas Tuchel and Mauricio Pochettino as replacements for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, it has been claimed.
Reports in France, where Tuchel is boss of Paris Saint-Germain, claim Old Trafford chiefs are impressed with his work with the Ligue 1 leaders.
Le10 Sport say United are growing to “appreciate” his achievements, not least dealing with superstar Neymar and prodigy Kylian Mbappe.
However, European heavyweights Barcelona and Bayern Munich are also said to be keeping tabs on the 46-year-old German.
Mauricio Pochettino has long been linked with the Old Trafford hotseat and fans reckon he was “born” to be United manager.
And speculation is rife about the future of former Juventus manager Max Allegri after it was reported he had a deal with a “great English club”.
Poch, 47, was sacked by Spurs earlier this season after five years at the club while Allegri left Juve last summer after picking up five Serie A titles.
The Argentine has recently admitted he would love a return to English football and that he is ready for the “next challenge”.
He told Sky Sports: “To be honest, I would love to work in the Premier League.
“It’s going to be difficult, I know, and for now it’s a moment to wait and we’ll see what happens.
“It’s a moment of recovery, to think about yourself a little bit, and to be ready because in football always something can happen and you need to be ready.
“I’m ready and waiting for a new challenge. I have the belief and confidence that the next challenge will be fantastic.”

United do remain keen to stick with Ole, though, especially after searching so long for a manager chiefs felt really understood the culture and ethos of the club.
And he is set to be handed a mega £274million transfer kitty this summer.
A £100m move for Jadon Sancho is top of the agenda but they will have to see off Chelsea to land the Borussia Dortmund star.
