Man Utd target ‘Mauricio Pochettino will cost PSG £12.5MILLION to sack’ as French giants consider axing ex-Spurs chief
MAURICIO POCHETTINO will cost Paris Saint-Germain £12.5million if they wish to sack him this summer, according to reports.
The Argentine manager's future came under serious threat following his side's Champions League exit at the hands of Real Madrid earlier this month.
And there was more disappointment for the former Spurs coach at the weekend.
Poch watched on as his team of stars were dismantled 3-0 by fellow Ligue 1 outfit Monaco.
And while PSG still hold a 12-point lead at the top of the table, it appears increasingly likely that they will look to change manager at the end of the campaign.
Man Utd have been heavily linked with Pochettino as they search for a new permanent boss.

Ralf Rangnick is currently in temporary charge until the summer, but Poch and Ajax head coach Erik ten Hag have both been muted as the frontrunners for the Red Devils vacancy.
However, according to L'Equipe, Pochettino will only become available if PSG opt to fork out £12.5m to get rid of him.
They will also have to pay compensation to all of the backroom staff he brought in.
The PSG boss currently earns around £920,000 per month and is not expected to walk away from that contract by choice.
