MAURICIO POCHETTINO is said to have been given the green light to leave PSG in the summer if two specific conditions are met.
Pochettino has been linked with the Old Trafford job before Ralf Rangnick appointed as interim boss for six months in Monday.
And PSG could have sanctioned a deal if their terms were met, according to the French newspaper Telefoot.
The former Spurs manager is still linked with Premier League back in the summer, but he may be back this month.
That is if United bought Pochettino out of his contract at the Parc des Princes which runs until June 2023.
Since then, he will still only be allowed to leave if Zidane waits on the flanks to replace him.
In the end the club never approached Zizou who was also associated with the Manchester United job – To take over.
And United themselves are said to have never contacted PSG in their efforts to find Poch.
But as Rangnick prepared to move into a consulting role at the end of the campaign, Pochettino is still linked with a management position.
Leicester owner Rodgers has consistently emphasized his commitment for Fox.
Pochettino also appeared calm at the weekend before being questioned about his future.
Pochettino told CBS Sunday: “We are always focused on football – our games and our work. It is not us, nor the club, who create these situations. It does not affect us.
“I’m focusing on PSG. We’re used to rumors coming in. When they come, it’s a good sign that there are a lot of them – it’s a sign that we’re working. good.
“We are calm and humble. We did not create these rumors.”
