The decision was made within 30 minutes of United’s 4-1 defeat at Watford on Saturday with Michael Carrick now taking temporary charge.
But as the search for a successor starts, according to the Daily Mail, former Tottenham manager Pochettino is prepared to answer the call.
That is because they claim he is currently living in a hotel in the French capital, while his family still live in England following his six years here.
He started at Southampton in 2013 and after three years joined Spurs, but was sacked in 2019.
Pochettino, who before joining PSG was linked with the United job, has since suffered inconsistent form in France.
