Argentine tactician Mauricio Pochettino was sacked as Tottenham Hotspur manager on Tuesday night, paying the price for a sloppy start to the present Premier League campaign.

According to journalist IndyKaila, Mauricio Pochettino will receive a payoff of £12.5m for his dismissal.

Reports claimed that the Argentine manager was asked to resign from his managerial job at Spurs before the decision was taken to sack him.

Mauricio Pochettino was dismissed as the Spurs manager five months after leading the North London club to the Champions League final for the first time in their history.

After 12 league games, Tottenham have just 14 points and are in 14th position on the Premier League log under Mauricio Pochettino.

The North Londoners are a long way off their target of finishing in the top four this season as they are 11 points adrift of Premier League champions Manchester City who are in fourth position.

Mauricio Pochettino has been replaced by Jose Mourinho as the new Tottenham Hotspur after the former Manchester United and Chelsea boss agreed a contract that will run until the summer of 2023.

It was also revealed that Jose Mourinho will earn twice the £7.5m yearly salary received by Pochettino while he was the Tottenham manager.

Mauricio Pochettino

Ex-Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has been in talks with Manchester United over the manager’s job at the club according to Italian media outlet Alfredo Pedulla.

Mauricio Pochettino has not been in the dugout since he was sacked as Tottenham Hotspur boss in November 2019 and replaced by Jose Mourinho who has managed Manchester United previously.

The ex-Argentine international player was booted out of the job at Spurs just some months after he led them to the Champions League final in Madrid.

According to the aforementioned publication, Mauricio Pochettino requested for full control of transfers at the club as he doesn’t want to suffer the same fate at Old Trafford.

He didn’t have the monopoly on transfers at Spurs as everything had to go through shrewd club chairman Daniel Levy.

Apart from Mauricio Pochettino, ex-Juventus boss Maximiliano Allegri is also interested in Manchester United job.

Manchester United have been inconsistent under manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this season and the loss of leading goalscorer Marcus Rashford could make things tough for him.

Marcos Rashford has scored 19 goals this season and the next player with most goals is Anthony Martial who has scored 11 goals.

According to Catalan news publication SPORT, Premier League giants Arsenal have said NO to the transfer proposal from Spanish La Liga club Barcelona.

The Spanish champions want to take leading scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on a short-term loan until this summer without any obligation to sign him at the end of the loan spell and the proposal was swiftly rejected by Arsenal officials who are clear on their stance that the club skipper is not for sale.

Barcelona wanted to sign either Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang or RB Leipzig star Timo Werner to cover up for Luis Suarez who will miss the next four months after knee surgery.

Luis Suarez had to undergo knee surgery that has effectively ended his season after he picked up a knee issue during the Spanish Super Cup tournament in Saudi Arabia earlier this month.

Aubameyang has scored 16 goals for Arsenal this season with 14 of those goals coming in the Premier League.

Barcelona have since turned their attention to Valencia striker Rodrigo with the fellow Spanish La Liga club keen to do a deal for their player.

The Catalans want to offer a loan fee of €10m for the Spanish international plus pay his weekly salary with the option to buy him out rightly for €50m this summer.

The German has now scored 20 goals in 18 league games this season and a total of 25 goals in 26 games in all competitions.

Edinson Cavani

Sleeping Premier League giants Manchester United need to sign an attacker to replace injured Marcus Rashford who’s already a doubt for the England national team ahead of this summer’s European Championships billed for different centers on the continent.

Marcus Rashford was said to be carrying a stress fracture in his back before the problem was aggravated by his collision with Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Matt Doherty when the two teams met last week Wednesday for the replay of their FA Cup third-round clash which ended in a goalless draw.

Juan Manuel Mata scored the only goal of the game to give Manchester United a 1-0 win at home thus securing a spot in the fourth round as a result.

Marcus Rashford came on for just 16 minutes and was involved in Juan Mata’s strike before being substituted as a result of the injury.

Manchester United have been linked with several strikers as an alternative to replace Marcus Rashford in their squad and these options include Paris Saint Germain (PSG) striker Edinson Cavani.

According to the report from ESPN, Manchester United can sign Edinson Cavani for just €20m.

The Uruguayan international has already submitted a transfer request at PSG whose officials are not willing to release him.

Manchester United

Manchester United have the opportunity to bounce back from the disappointing loss to league leaders Liverpool at the weekend when they take on Burnley at the Theatre of Dreams on Wednesday.

Liverpool continued their sensational run in the Premier League with the aid of a 2-0 win over the Red Devils who could have gotten something out of the game if they had been a little clinical in front of goal.

Manchester United played the first league game of the season without Marcus Rashford against Liverpool and that is set to continue into the game against Burnley at Old Trafford.

Marcus Rashford has scored 19 goals in all competitions and he won’t be able to add to that tally after he was ruled out till March because of a double stress fracture in his back.

In his absence, Mason Greenwood is expected to step up in his place though manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would be reluctant to overwork the teenager who has scored 4 goals in the Premier League this season.

Probable Manchester United XI vs Burnley:-

David De Gea; Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw; Fred, Nemanja Matic, Juan Manuel Mata; Mason Greenwood, Anthony Martial and Welsh winger Daniel James.

Manchester United have been told the condition required to sign young midfielder Jude Bellingham who plays his club football for English Championship outfit Birmingham City.

This is according to the report from The Times which said that Manchester United have made an offer for Jude Bellingham.

It was revealed that the Red Devils want to pay as much as £25m for Jude Bellingham who is a 16-year-old midfielder setting the English Championship stage on fire.

He has scored four goals and an assist in 24 games for Birmingham City in this campaign.

According to the aforementioned publication, Jude Bellingham will only leave Birmingham City for Manchester United or any other club if the proposed team is ready to send the player back to the Midlands club for the next 18 months until the summer of 2021.

The player also has reservations about getting enough playing time when he signs for the Red Devils.

He is already a regular for Birmingham City this season and that would be almost impossible at a big club like Manchester United.

Bruno Fernandes is a top midfield target for Manchester United and they have already made several offers for the player but Sporting Lisbon are holding firm on their €80m valuation.

Anthony Martial

Manchester United legend Gary Neville has delivered a damming verdict on Anthony Martial and his inconsistent displays for the Red Devils.

According to the former Manchester United skipper, the club is frightened to death to sell Anthony Martial.

Gary Neville criticized the French international player shortly after his below-par outing for Manchester United during the Premier League clash at the home of league leaders Liverpool.

The ex-Manchester United right-back told Sky Sports that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would give Anthony Martial enough time to prove himself worthy of playing for a big club like Manchester United.

Anthony Martial was heavily criticized for his performance during the Liverpool game at the weekend especially after he missed a very good chance for Manchester United while the scoreline was 1-0 in favour of hosts Liverpool who had taken a 15th-minute lead through Virgil Van Dijk.

Martial had the chance to equalize for the Red Devils in the second half only for him to fluff his lines.

The Frenchman and Manchester United were eventually on the receiving end of a 2-0 defeat with Mohamed Salah netting the clinching goal in added time.

Anthony Martial has scored 11 goals in all competitions for Manchester United this term.
