Mauricio Pochettino will leave Tottenham and target the Manchester United job, according to journalist Duncan Castles.
The Red Devils were beaten 1-0 at struggling Newcastle last Sunday and their only victory in their last five outings in all competitions was a penalty shoot-out success over League One side Rochdale in the Carabao Cup.
United have claimed just nine points from their opening eight games in the Premier League under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and are 12th in the table, 15 points behind leaders Liverpool.
“The information I have from someone close to Pochettino is he has very much targeted a new job,” Castles told The Transfer Window Podcast.
“In his head, he has made the decision he will be moving on from Tottenham Hotspur.
“I think it’s dependent on how that finishes for him there, whether he sees out the season out or not.
“But he sees that he has run his course at Tottenham and is looking to move to a new club.
“And the club I’m told he is targeting at his next job is Manchester United.”
