How Man Utd could line up if Tuchel or Pochettino replaces Solskjaer at Old Trafford
Manchester United may be unbeaten in their last seven matches. They’re currently behind Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. But that hasn’t stopped links with Thomas Tuchel and Mauricio Pochettino starting up again with the end of the season creeping closer.
Manchester United have insisted they’re behind Solskjaer and they believe the Norwegian is the right man for the Old Trafford hotseat.
But it’s recently been suggested that both Tuchel and Pochettino are admired by the club’s hierarchy.
Tuchel is currently at PSG but could leave at the end of the season should the Ligue 1 giants fail to win the Champions League.
Pochettino, meanwhile, has long been a United managerial target and is currently available, having left Tottenham back in October.
Express Sport now takes a look at how United could line up under Tuchel or Pochettino should Solskjaer be sacked come the summer – and if they were to make three signings.

Should Tuchel take over it’s likely he’d try and swoop for Jadon Sancho and Kalidou Koulibaly.
The German has both players on his list of PSG transfer targets ahead of the summer should he stay at the Parc des Princes.
Both have also been linked with United. Interest in Sancho is genuine and well-documented, while Koulibaly is highly-rated by Solskjaer.
Another player Tuchel could try and sign is Marco Verratti.
The Italy international has been a vital part of his PSG machine and a reunion at Old Trafford would satisfy United fans.

If Pochettino were to take over at United he’d likely try and bring Harry Kane to Old Trafford.
The England international has been backed to leave Tottenham in recent times in order to win major silverware elsewhere.
United love to sign the biggest and best players in world football and Kane would certainly represent an upgrade on Anthony Martial.
Spurs midfielder Harry Winks is admired by the Red Devils board and Pochettino could possible snap up the 24-year-old.
The Argentine also tried to land Jack Grealish while he was Tottenham manager – so a move for the Aston Villa star would also be possible.
