United have appointed Michael Carrick as their caretaker boss with their search for Solskjaer’s permanent successor ongoing.
Sportsmail revealed on Monday that Pochettino is interested in moving to Old Trafford this season.
It’s understood that the former Tottenham boss is willing to leave PSG now because he is unhappy in the French capital.

Pochettino is living in a hotel while his family remain in London, and is said to be frustrated at managing a dressing-room with big egos like Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.
The PSG boss was one of the candidates for the United job when Solskjaer took over from Jose Mourinho in December 2018 and is still admired by the United hierarchy.
While PSG’s players believe former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane becoming their new leader is ‘imminent’.

The feeling inside PSG’s dressing room is that Zidane is poised to step in in the near future, according to Marca.
A compromise could be reached with Pochettino heading to United and Zidane – still a hero in his homeland – taking the reins in Paris. The duo may even be on the move shortly.
In fact, the report claims that PSG’s stars are already privately discussing the possibility of Zidane managing the club over the coming weeks.
Ajax boss Erik ten Hag, Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers and Ralf Rangnick are other contenders for the vacant managerial role at Old Trafford.
Pochettino will address the media later today ahead of PSG’s Champions League Group A clash at City.
