According to a report exclusively covered by The Daily Star, Woodward is convinced that Tottenham boss, Mauricio Pochettino, can turn things around at United and is willing to make him the highest paid manager in the world.

Regardless, Pochettino is an expert in building a squad for a long-term project, a revered quality at Man United.

The 46-year-old was speaking ahead of his side's Carabao Cup quarter final with Arsenal, but he offered little comfort to Spurs fans when he cryptically continued: "There are a lot of rumours about my position as manager at Tottenham".

"Clubs outspent United for many, many years 10, 12 years ago and Manchester United were still winning leagues".

Pochettino has insisted he is focused on managing Spurs for the time being.

Jose Mourinho is out at Manchester United after the club announced his departure on Tuesday following a three-year stint that fell way short of expectations.

"Jose Mourinho is a wonderful manager and I've never bought into the idea that he is a spent force and he has run his course", he added. "I have a good relationship with him. he's a good friend, and it's sad news", Pochettino told a news conference.

"I went to send my best wishes to him, I'm so sorry". I can not answer this question.

"He is a good friend, it is sad news what happened today".

Even though he signed a new five-year contract at Tottenham last summer, United's decision to appoint Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the club's interim manager until the end of this season suggests their top managerial target is now employed by another club. "I'm so happy here", he said.

"You look at his performance levels and style of play, the way in which he carries himself at all times - publicly and in private - I have been fortunate enough to spend two or three days at Tottenham's training ground".

I suppose, on paper, a draw at United doesn't look too bad but when you reflect, to lead twice, perhaps a better team might have been more clinical and won the game given also United's form and predicament.Huddersfield was a struggle but they got there in the end with a late goal.

Former Manchester United defender Neville outlined why Pochettino is the right candidate to become the fourth Manchester United manager since Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement.
