Manchester United have reportedly been given a huge boost in their race to appoint Mauricio Pochettino as their new manager.
The Argentine has been strongly linked with the Man Utd job in the last few days following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and it now seems things may be moving along according to plan for the Premier League giants.
According to a report from Todo Fichajes, Zinedine Zidane has agreed to take over from Pochettino at Paris Saint-Germain, rather than holding out for the French national team job.
There had been some doubts about whether PSG would let Pochettino leave in the middle of the season, but they have also held some talks with Zidane.
