Paris Saint Germain manager Mauricio Pichettino is close to joining Manchester United according to the latest reports.
The Argentine has strongly been linked to United following the departure of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Monday and according to reports from Santi Aouna, the French giants are ready to listen to a proposal from the Red Devils.
It is claimed that United will have to pay around £10million in compensation to PSG for the former Tottenham boss with the Parisian keen on having former Real Madrid man Zinedine Zidane at the helm of the club.

According to Manchester Evening News, United officials are growing confident of prising Pochettino away from PSG and making him their new permanent manager and after paying £7.75million to relieve Solskjaer of his duties, United would have spent a total of £17.75million to make their desired managerial change.
United are however yet to submit an official bid for Pochettino with Ajax manager Erik ten Hag and former United boy Laurent Blanc being the others who have been linked with the job.
