Manchester United and Manchester City have reportedly considered contacting Tottenham Hotspur’s former manager
The hammering defeat against Tottenham Hotspur at the Old Trafford has seen Manchester United go into a state of panic. Reports suggest that the Red Devils might consider a change of manager in order to revive the lackluster squad.
The officials at Manchester United are considering a move for the Argentinian manager, Mauricio Pochettino, after a terrible start to the 2020/21 season. The Red Devils have secured just one win in an unconvincing fashion against Brighton and managed to lose against Crystal Palace and Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League so far.
However, the English side is aware that they face stern competition from their city rivals, Manchester City, to replace Pep Guardiola, who has yet to renew his contract with the Sky Blues. With just seven months left on the contract, the Spaniard is showing no signs of renewing his contract with the former Premier League winners.
The Argentinian manager has been away from football for almost a year after he was sacked from his duty as a Tottenham manager. Reports suggest, that the Argentinian is more than ready to come back into the footballing world and is looking for bigger projects going forward, and both clubs from Manchester could provide him the opportunity he’s looking for.
According to the reports, the Manchester United board will certainly give their current manager a chance to redeem himself in the Champions League. The club officials also believe that the recent results are solely based on the lack of pre-season preparation.
Whereas on the other hand, Manchester City is awaiting further instructions from the Spaniard regarding the contract renewal talks, the Sky Blues would be more than happy to keep the former Barcelona coach, but Guardiola’s body language has been stern since the start of the season.
In their three fixtures in the Premier League, City has recorded a maiden win against Wolves on an opening day, and since then they have been handed 5-2 humiliation by hands of Brendan Roger’s Leicester City and a draw against newly-promoted, Leeds United.
Both clubs realize that the Argentinian manager won’t be available on the market forever and they need to materialize terms with utmost importance and priority in order to employ him for the upcoming seasons.
