Pochettino would surely be handed a long-term deal if he were to become United boss and would then likely be heavily backed with finances to bring in new players.
It is an approach which could well convince Ferguson that Solskjaer should be relieved of his duties.
Pochettino only took over at PSG at the start of the year but could soon be looking for a new job.
