However, Paris Saint-Germain are holding their ground, blocking access from United to speak to their manager.

Pochettino was in town for last night’s clash with Man City at the Etihad.

One United fan told talkSPORT: “We met Poch today, my son had his autograph in his pocket and he said, ‘see if you can let him sign for Man United’.

“It’s my kid’s shirt, what they don’t post is a picture of him signing it.

“Have an agent by his side, ‘sorry, that’s the Manchester United shirt, he won’t sign it’.’ And he said, ‘it’s fine,’ and he signed it.

“I’m totally looking forward to him [not sign it]. I said [to my son], ‘sign your card first and take the shirt out and see what happens’.

“He was asked to turn it down, so he took a chance, but he didn’t and he signed it.”

Pochettino, who has a great relationship with Sir Alex Ferguson, told the media he was happy in Paris – but stopped short of deciding on his own to replace Solskjaer.

“We’re 100% focused on getting the best results possible. So we can’t talk about that.
