Pochettino is United’s first choice to become their new manager following Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s departure on Sunday.
With Michael Carrick serving as caretaker boss this week, United had planned to appoint an interim boss until the end of the season.
Those plans could yet change however with recent reports suggesting Pochettino would be willing to return to the Premier League now, rather than waiting until the end of the current campaign.
Zidane is thought to have already informed United that he is not keen on the the vacant position at Old Trafford and is currently only interested in managing the French national team or PSG.
Marca now report that there is already an idea within the PSG dressing room that Zidane’s arrival is ‘imminent’.
The report adds players are already privately discussing the possibility of the France legend replacing Pochettino, sensing the move could happen.
While PSG are 11 points clear at the summit of Ligue 1 and going strong in the Champions League, Pochettino is reportedly very open to taking over at Old Trafford.
The former Tottenham boss is said to be unsatisfied with the culture of PSG where his role is strictly a first-team coach with broader footballing issues overseen by sporting director Leonardo.
The Argentine’s family have also remained in London during his time at the Parc de Princes.
The Manchester Evening News claims Pochettino is ready to quit PSG and join United now, potentially leaving Zidane free to take the hotseat in Paris.
