However, they weren’t the only Manchester club to have him on their list of potential future managers, as United have reportedly made contact with his representatives about potentially taking over from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The Norwegian boss is under considerable pressure at Old Trafford at the moment after a mediocre start to the season, and had been tipped to lose his job if results worsened.
Things looked slightly brighter before the international break, as United beat Everton 3-1 away from home. But the speculation is still lingering over Solskjaer, and Pochettino continues to be linked.
Guardiola further extending his stay at the Etihad means United will face less competition from elsewhere if they do go for Pochettino.
