According to reports, Manchester United’s goal, Mauricio Pochettino, has demanded that Ed Woodward be eliminated from football affairs to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the end of the season. The Argentine has fans inside Old Trafford and is currently available, as he has been removed from football.
On Monday night, Beyond the Pitch and talkSPORT journalist Phil Brown said United had held secret talks with Pochettino about taking office at the end of the season.
With the Red Devils fighting under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, he said: “What they’ve told me is that United has been talking to Pochettino for a few weeks.
“He doesn’t want work until the end of the season.
“He doesn’t want the job until certain requirements are met.
“Someone told me that I would know, who I trust 100 percent and that has given me things in the past and has hit me, so he is clearly informed.

It seems that Woodward may have to give up his power if he wants to get Pochettino.
Publicly, the club has insisted that they support Ole Gunnar Solskjaer despite his mixed form.
But Brown’s comment suggests that they are preparing for life without the Norwegian in command.
United also reported that they are happy with their recruitment process and how things are going behind the scenes.
But the demands of Pochettino seem clear and if they comply or not is something that only time will tell.
