Benfica are interested in appointing former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino as their new manager.

Pochettino has been out of work since his departure from Tottenham in November last year, but could now be offered a route back into management. According to Record, Benfica are prepared to make a major financial investment to lure the 48-year-old to the club.

It appears unlikely that he will head to Manchester United at this stage, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side having performed more impressively of late.

Newcastle were also previously linked with Pochettino, but their proposed takeover has yet to be completed.

Benfica still have six league games remaining this season but they are planning ahead and are determined to secure the services of Pochettino if possible.
