Manchester United and Real Madrid are long-term admirers but Bayern Munich may get there first and Everton will try their chances… where axed Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino could go next
Now without employment, Mauricio Pochettino won’t have long to wait before he finds himself very much in demand.
The occurrence of a manager of the Argentine’s calibre appearing on the market, without a compensation clause to pay, is very rare indeed.
Bayern Munich are ready to pounce on the man who has earned the affections of Manchester United and Real Madrid, but others are waiting to make their move. Sportsmail takes a look at what could happen next.
BAYERN MUNICH 4/5
Bayern have caretaker Hansi Flick in charge and sport director Hasan Salihamidzic is a confirmed Pochettino fan but also holds reservations that the Argentine tends to make changes too late in games to affect them.
MANCHESTER UNITED 3/5
Club insists they stand behind Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, particularly after an upturn in results, but Pochettino’s availability will cast a huge shadow over the shoulders of the Manchester United manager now.

PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN 2/5
Pochettino has an affiliation with his former club but Thomas Tuchel has his side eight points clear at the top of the league and is likely to see out the rest of this season at least.
REAL MADRID 3/5
A Real Madrid coach is only ever a few games away from the sack. Zinedine Zidane has emerged from the latest storm but knows Pochettino is well fancied. Would not get the time he desires for a project though.
Marco Silva is limping through the season and change is wanted by fans. Everton have wealth and talk up their long-term ambitions, enticing Pochettino could be their greatest statement of intent.

Pochettino has worked almost non-stop for the past 10 years since starting at Espanyol, moving to Southampton and then Tottenham. A time out to recharge could see his stock rise and options increase for the summer
