Mauricio Pochettino is no longer the first choice to replace Ralf Rangnick as Manchester United manager.
The club are now looking at Ajax manager Erik Ten Hag as the next permanent manager of the club and will be appointed.
The Red Devils have cooled their interest in Pochettino after the Argentine had been United’s first choice to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Manchester United have twice tried to hire the former Tottenham boss and Sir Alex Ferguson is a known admirer of the former Argentine.
The Times report that Pochettino has been replaced as Manchester United’s first choice to become the club’s next manager, with the club now targeting Ten Hag from Ajax.
Hag is widely regarded as one of the best managers in world football at the moment, winning two league titles with the Dutch side since he took charge in December 2017.
Manchester United are said to have been more impressive is the way in which Ten Hag has implemented his playing style and philosophy.
