Man Utd face battle for Mauricio Pochettino with Real Madrid as ex-Spurs manager prepares to leave PSG at end of season

MANCHESTER UNITED face a battle to land Paris Saint-Germain boss Mauricio Pochettino, according to reports.

The Red Devils are yet to decide whether to stick with interim manager Ralf Rangnick or twist in another direction.

And one of the alternative options to Rangnick is Pochettino, who was linked with the job when Ole Gunnar Solskjer was sacked late last year.

But according to the Daily Mail, United could face competition from Real Madrid for Pochettino, who could be 'obtainable' this summer.

Despite sitting pretty at the top of LaLiga, there are doubts emerging over Carlo Ancelotti's long-term future at the Bernabeu.

Real's players were jeered by they own supporters during a 3-1 win over Alaves on Saturday.

And how Real fair in the Champions League could decide Ancelotti's future at Real.

At the moment, it isn't looking good for the Italian as Real trail PSG 1-0 heading into the second leg of their Round of 16 clash.
