Mauricio Pochettino is apparently "desperate" to take charge of Manchester United and his determination to dump Paris Saint-Germain for the Red Devils has seen his odds on replacing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer slashed to 11/8 with Planet Sport Bet.
Desperate could equally be attributed to United's performance against Watford on Saturday, with the 4-1 drubbing underlining everything that is wrong with the club at the moment.
United will be a different beast altogether, with memories of last season's runners-up spot having long since faded despite a summer which saw Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane and Cristiano Ronaldo arrive.
The 49-year-old has long been linked with the France role given it would allow him to retain his Madrid base.
And nothing he will have witnessed from United in recent weeks would dissuade him from holding out for his dream job.
Pochettino, though, sees United as a long-term project - one that was getting longer by the day under Solskjaer.
His contract with PSG may be a sticking point, however, with the Argentine tied down to the Ligue 1 club until summer 2023.
With Leicester languishing in 12th, it appears he may have taken the Foxes as far as he can. The former Liverpool manager will relish the chance of another crack at a big club and can be backed at around 5/1.
