Mauricio Pochettino’s potential move to Manchester United as a replacement for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could be scuppered due to a clause he has with Tottenham, according to reports.

Solskjaer is under increasing pressure at United following his side’s 2-2 draw with Aston Villa on Sunday.

The draw at Old Trafford has kept United eight points behind fourth-placed Chelsea and Solskjaer faces a battle to secure Champions League football for next season.

Pochettino, meanwhile, is available after he was sacked by Tottenham less than two weeks ago.

The 47-year-old was wanted by United in 2016 and was heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford once again after Jose Mourinho was sacked last December.

The possibility of Pochettino’s arrival will continue to loom over Solskjaer but according to the Sunday Express, a clause in the Argentine’s deal could hold up his potential move to Old Trafford.

The report claims that Pochettino would have to repay his £12.5 million compensation pay-off to Spurs if he agreed to manage another Premier League team before the end of the season.

That could ensure that Solskjaer remains at United to see out the remainder of the campaign before the club’s hierarchy decide to bring Pochettino in.

However, Pochettino’s clause reportedly only covers teams in the Premier League, which means he would keep his compensation if he opted to join either Bayern Munich or Real Madrid.
