Manchester United will not hesitate to cough up a huge amount for Mauricio Pochettino.
The Mancunian giants’ latest financial results revealed record revenues of £208m and profits of £44m, despite the fact that they had to shell out £20m in order to part ways with Jose Mourinho back in December.
These humongous figures only showcase the enormous financial muscle that the club boasts of, and according to The Standard, the Red Devils will not hesitate in making full use of these coffers while making their next managerial appointment.
Therefore, the prospect of paying Tottenham Hotspur a compensation fee worth £34m is very unlikely to put Manchester United off, the report suggests.
WATCH: What Will Happen If Pochettino Joins United
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has done an impressive job since taking over the interim role at Old Trafford. However, his side’s latest defeat to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League did come as a harsh reality check.
Pochettino, on the other hand, steered Spurs to a 3-0 win over Borussia Dortmund, all but sealing a spot in the quarter-finals of Europe’s premier competition, and entering back into contention for the Manchester United job.
Ed Woodward has time and again stated that the club will make a final decision regarding the permanent manager at the end of the campaign, and until then, both Solskjaer and Pochettino are expected to lead the race for the hot-seat.
The final appointment, however, will be made completely in terms of their managerial ability, and not the money United will have to spend to seal their respective deals.
