According to reports from Mirror Football, Manchester United are lining up Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino as a potential replacement for Louis van Gaal. 

The highly-rated Argentine has certainly impressed since arriving in the Premier League in January 2013. He transformed Southampton from relegation battlers into top six contenders during his 18 months at St. Mary’s and has had a similar effect in north London, propelling Spurs onto the fringes of this season’s Premier League title race.

Mirror Football claim it’s Pochettino’s understated style, providing impressive results with minimal fuss, that has gained Manchester United’s admiration most as they continue to consider potential replacements for under-fire manager Louis van Gaal.

The Dutchman ended United’s seven-game winless streak with a 2-1 victory over Swansea City last weekend and claimed another win over Sheffield United in the FA Cup’s third round on Saturday, but his status as Old Trafford boss remains under threat amid an underwhelming 2015/16 campaign.

The chances of Pochettino switching allegiances midseason are exceptionally slim, especially with Spurs three points ahead of United in the league table and just six behind table-toppers Arsenal. But the Red Devils have earmarked the 43-year-old him as a potential summer appointment alongside PSG gaffer Laurent Blanc.
