Mauricio Pochettino signed a Manchester United shirt for a supporter inside the Paris Saint-Germain team hotel before their Champions League tie against Manchester city Wednesday.

The Argentine is one of United’s best choices to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who was sacked on Sunday, but the club face enormous difficulties in attracting Paris Saint-Germain for more than half of the season.

Pochettino is said to be interested in taking over United and is unhappy with his current situation at PSG.

However, the French club are unwilling to let the 49-year-old go before the end of the campaign.

United are now looking for an interim meeting to see them through for the remainder of the season with former Barcelona head coach Ernesto Valverde and former Lyon boss Rudi Garcia both contacted.

But Pochettino has given a big indication that his long-term future could be at United after choosing to sign a shirt for a fan at the Lowry Hotel this week.

“We met Poch today, my kid had his autographs in the bag and the guy said ‘see if you can get him to sign a Man United shirt.’ This is my kid’s shirt, which they don’t have. ‘haven’t posted, it’s the picture of him signing it,’ United fan Billy said in an interview with talkSPORT.

‘There was a representative next to him,’ excuse me, this is a Manchester United shirt, he will not sign it ”. And he said, ‘It’s okay, it’s okay,’ and he signed it.

‘I really expected that he [not sign it]. I said [to my son], ‘Get your card signed first and pull out your shirt and see what happens’.

“He was told to refuse, so he had a withdrawal, but he didn’t and he signed it.”

Following his side’s 2-1 defeat to Manchester City in the Champions League, Pochettino was also evasive when asked if he had reassured his PSG players that he would stay at the club.

“The players know our situation very well,” said Pochettino.

“I think we live in a company where the rumors are there, sometimes negative, sometimes positive, sometimes positive, sometimes negative. This is what we say about rumors.
