Pochettino is a leading candidate to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who was sacked on Sunday.

Pochettino is said to be keen on becoming next Man United permanent manager and is said to be unhappy with his current situation at PSG.

But signing the autograph gives a big indication that the former Tottenham manager long-term future could be at United.

“We met Poch today, my kid had his autograph stuff in the bag and the guy goes, ‘see if you can get him to sign a Man United shirt’.

“That’s my kid’s shirt, what they didn’t post was the photo of him signing it,” Billy, the United supporter, said in an interview with talkSPORT.

“There was a representative next to him going, ‘excuse me, it’s a Manchester United shirt, he won’t sign it’. And he goes, ‘it’s fine, it’s fine’ and he signed it.

“I fully expected him to [not sign it]. I said [to my son], ‘get your card signed first and put your shirt out and see what happens’.

“He was being told to turn it down, so he did have an out, but he didn’t and he signed it.”
