Legendary Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has chosen who he wants to be the club's new manager next season.

Mauricio Pochettino is the man chosen, according to The Sun. The Argentine has always been to Ferguson's taste and the two have dined together in London before. 

For now, following the sacking of Jose Mourinho, United will be led by former striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer until the end of the season. 

But United are working on a long-term plan and it seems Tottenham coach Pochettino is their top target. Signing him will not be cheap, though, with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy wanting 45 million euros. 

That was the figure announced when Real Madrid's interest surfaced (after Pochettino had signed a new deal) and it's unlikely a direct rival in the Premier League would be able to pay less.
