MANCHESTER UNITED have had an approach for Mauricio Pochettino knocked back by PSG.

The French club have been annoyed by reports that United could poach their manager and that he is desperate to move to Old Trafford.

Manchester United seemingly want Mauricio Pochettino to become their new manager

The Red Devils board have now shelved any plans to get the 49-year-old away from the French capital until at least the summer.

United are searching for a new manager after sacking Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last Saturday following the 4-1 defeat to Watford.

Pochettino and Leicester’s Brendan Rodgers are the leading candidates to replace him full-time.

Michael Carrick has been put in temporary charge and had a good start to his caretaker reign with a 2-0 Champions League win away to Villarreal last night.

He will remain at the helm for Sunday’s trip to Stamford Bridge and the 4.30pm kick-off against Premier League leaders Chelsea.

The Red Devils have said in a statement that they are looking for an interim manager to the end of the season before making a permanent appointment.

But they would still prefer the new boss now.

So far they are putting out feelers to see who would come.

SunSport reported on Monday that there had been contact with Leicester boss Rodgers.

He has a clause in his contract allowing him to speak to certain named clubs if they come calling of which United are one.

But there is a huge admiration for Pochettino too with former manager and club director Sir Alex Ferguson a close friend.

Reports emerged this week that the former Spurs boss is unhappy in Paris with his family still living in London.

It is said he would love the chance to move to Old Trafford and would do so now with Zinedine Zidane in the wings to replace him at PSG.

Although ahead of tonight’s Champions League match against Manchester City at The Etihad he emphasised he was happy at PSG and in Paris.

United’s victory in Spain courtesy of goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho guaranteed them progress into the knockout stages of the Champions League as Group F winners with a game to spare.
