MANCHESTER UNITED could reportedly hijack Chelsea’s move for Philippe Coutinho if they hire Mauricio Pochettino this summer.
Sports Witness sensationally claims ex-Spurs boss Poch is still in with a chance of replacing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Old Trafford despite the Norwegian’s recent impressive record.
Pochettino was tipped to take over from Solskjaer earlier this season after he himself was sacked by Tottenham.
And it’s believed United chiefs are still keeping tabs on Poch as they ponder Solskjaer’s long-term future at the club.
Should Pochettino take charge at the Theatre of Dreams, it’s believed he would target a number of players from his Spurs days
And one of them is said to be ex-Liverpool playmaker Coutinho.
The Brazilian is on a season-long loan at Bayern Munich from Barcelona.
But he is expected to return to the Nou Camp this summer despite not having a future there.
Chelsea are understood to be keen on bringing Coutinho back to England.
But should Poch move north, United will also be on the frontline to battle for the Brazilian’s signature.
