But Paris Saint-Germain coach Pochettino, who previously played for Tottenham, is currently the favorite.

Pochettino is also “desperate” of becoming the new Manchester United coach, sources close to the Argentine told TalkSPORT.

Solskjaer was sacked after a disastrous streak on his part culminated in a 4-1 win over Watford at Vicarage Road on Saturday.

They have suffered 5-0 loss to Liverpool in October and a 2-0 defeat to Manchester City before the international break.

Brendan Rodgers, Zinedine Zidane and Eric Ten Hag are also in the mix.
