Mauricio Pochettino claims he is “good in Paris” but is aware “things are happen” in football amid growing interest from Manchester United.

The current PSG boss is being heavily linked with the vacancy at Old Trafford.

Currently he finds himself in the English city preparing his side for a Champions League clash against Manchester City, but the build up to the game has been dominated by his future.

United axed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Sunday and were set to appoint an interim boss until the end of the season before pursuing a major target in the summer.

Pochettino has been quizzed on his future and said: “I’m good in Paris. I know well, all my life as a player or coach I have experienced this kind of situation.
