Chelsea are currently for sale and interested buyers must register their interest by the end of the week. Tuchel still has over two years remaining on his Chelsea contract but United believe a large compensation package would be attractive to the west London side.
The Star says there is also concern at United about Pochettino’s suitability for the job. The Argentine has long been linked with the Red Devils, dating back to his time in charge of Tottenham.
However, he saw his PSG side crash out of the Champions League last-16 stage against Real Madrid last week despite taking a first leg lead to the Bernabeu. Pochettino failed to win any trophies during his five years in charge of Tottenham.
