Man Utd have decided to not pursue Mauricio Pochettino and are now focusing on targeting Bologna forward Joshua Zirkzee, along with Arsenal.

Man Utd have reportedly lost interest in Mauricio Pochettino as their potential manager. The Times states that United had initially targeted Thomas Tuchel, who declined the role. With Erik ten Hag’s future uncertain, it seems Pochettino will not be replacing him. The club spoke to Pochettino at the end of the season, but it is unlikely he will be given the job. Pochettino led Chelsea to sixth position, finishing above United.

Arsenal and Man Utd are both keeping an eye on Dutch forward Joshua Zirkzee. The 23-year-old joined Bologna from Bayern Munich in 2022. Zirkzee’s release clause of £34m makes him an attractive option for clubs, but AC Milan may also be interested. Zirkzee scored 11 goals in 34 league games, helping Bologna secure fifth place and a spot in the UEFA Champions League.

Trent Alexander-Arnold is expected to start for England in their first match at Euro 2024 against Serbia. The Liverpool player is set to play in midfield and could partner Declan Rice. Alexander-Arnold was given the No 8 shirt for a reason, according to a source. He will be competing with Conor Gallagher, Kobbie Mainoo, and Adam Wharton for the spot next to Rice.

Brighton are set to announce Fabian Hurzeler as their new manager. The 31-year-old German, known for his data-driven approach, is set to replace Roberto De Zerbi. Brighton have secured a work permit for Hurzeler.

Leicester, on the other hand, have made Graham Potter their top target after Enzo Maresca’s departure. Potter previously managed Brighton and Chelsea.
