How Man Utd could line up under Pochettino with Kane, Alderweireld and Dybala after club 'make contact' with Argentine

MANCHESTER UNITED have reportedly made contact with Mauricio Pochettino and the former Spurs manager could revolutionise Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's squad.

According to reports from the MEN, United chiefs have contacted Poch's representatives as the pressure builds on Norwegian boss Solskjaer.


SunSport understands there has been no contact with Pochettino yet despite him being the ODDS-ON favourite for the job.

But here's how the Red Devils could line-up if the move goes through, with Solskjaer also favourite to be the next Premier League manager sacked.

The big statement signing would be England skipper Harry Kane to lead the line for Poch's Red Devils.

The pair were very close at Tottenham and Kane has shown exactly why he has been linked with the club in the past after a blistering start to the season.

The 27-year-old incredibly has FOURTEEN goal involvements in just seven league matches, with six goals and eight assists to his name.

The club will need another striker as Odion Ighalo's extended loan move from Shanghai Shenhua ends in the New Year.

As well as talisman Kane, the Argentine coach, 48, may bring in further January additions if he is given the top job at Old Trafford.

Compatriot Paulo Dybala was previously linked with a move to Carrington and Pochettino could be tempted to bring the prolific wideman to the Prem as United are keen to strengthen their options on the wing.

Last month Dybala, 26, allegedly clashed with Juventus' chief Fabio Paratici in the tunnel after again missing out on a place in the starting XI and may seek an exit route.

United's defensive problems are no secret and Poch may turn to old club Spurs again as he looks for a dependable centre-back partner for skipper Harry Maguire.

Belgian ace Toby Alderweireld, 31, was once rumoured to be making the move North and – after losing his starting spot under Poch's successor Jose Mourinho – should be available.

Pochettino will be inclined to try and get all his best players on the park as he looks to make his mark in a new role.

And club chiefs will be keen to finally see Donny van de Beek regularly in the XI after splashing out £40million to bring him in from Ajax.

If the former Southampton manager can get the Dutchman firing alongside Paul Pogba – with Bruno Fernandes playing as a No10 – then he will be on his way to a successful stint in charge.
