Mauricio Pochettino sets key condition to snub Manchester United for Tottenham stay

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may be moving closer to getting the Manchester United job permanently over Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino.

According to Sunday World, as reported by the Irish Independent, Pochettino seems prepared to stay at Spurs as he is keen to lead them out in their new stadium.

However, the report states that one condition of staying with Tottenham is that they don’t sell the club’s star players in the coming months.

This could be seen as something of a blow for Man Utd as the report suggests they’re still keen on Pochettino.

However, many fans will now not be bothered as Solskjaer has done such a fine job since taking over from Jose Mourinho in December.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to be next Manchester United manager?

The Norwegian tactician may only be in as caretaker manager at the moment, but he’s a big fan favourite at Old Trafford and has only enhanced his reputation with a stunning eight wins out of his first eight games in charge.

If Pochettino is leaning towards staying with Tottenham, Solskjaer is surely the only man who should now be in the running for the full time job with United.
