Mauricio Pochettino will reportedly target Borussia Dortmund‘s Jude Bellingham if he becomes the new Manchester United manager.
The Red Devils are believed to have identified Pochettino as their number one choice to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on a long-term basis, but the club still might have to bring in an interim manager for the remainder of the 2021-22 campaign.
The Paris Saint-Germain boss has allegedly identified Atletico Madrid‘s Kieran Trippier and Sevilla’s Jules Kounde as two leading targets if he arrives at Old Trafford.
However, according to La Razon, the Argentine has also set his sights on Bellingham, who has starred for Dortmund since arriving from Birmingham City in July 2020.
The 18-year-old – also linked with Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City – has scored seven times and contributed 11 assists in 65 appearances for BVB in all competitions.
Meanwhile, the England international has been in impressive form at club level this term, contributing three goals and seven assists in 19 outings.
