Manchester United up interest for Tottenham Hotspur manager

Manchester United have upped their interest in luring over Tottenham Hotspur’s Mauricio Pochettino to take over Louis van Gaal, according to report from the Sun.

Van Gaal has been under some immense pressure the past term, with the Red Devils not challenging for the Premier League title and struggling to break into the top four.

Fans and critics have also slammed his ‘boring’ style of football earlier in the campaign, and it is expected that he will leave the club in the summer transfer window.

Former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho was favourite to take over the Old Trafford helm, but now Spurs gaffer Pochettino is being heavily considered as an adequate alternative.

The Argentine turned the Lilywhites from a Europa League side into title challengers in less than two seasons and is heavily admired by United chief executive Ed Woodward.

It has also been claimed that Mourinho could take charge of Valencia following Gary Neville’s sacking, which would make Pochettino a real option.
