    Could Laurent Blanc pip Jose Mourinho to the Manchester United job?

    Manchester City may have inadvertently pushed their cross-city rivals, Manchester United, into action with their stunning Champions League win over Paris Saint-Germain. United have been 'dillying and dallying' over whether to stick or twist with manager Louis van Gaal but Tuesday night's result could yet force the Red Devils hierarchy into action...

    Blanc To United?

    There is the potential for a managerial merry-go-round in the coming months where Laurent Blanc takes over at United and Jose Mourinho replaces him in Paris, with Louis van Gaal left watching the carousel go round like the unpopular kid at the fairground.

    Blanc, who won the Premier League title as a player with United in 2003, is coming under increasing pressure after PSG crashed out of the Champions League quarter-finals for a fourth season in succession. They were devoid of ideas during the 1-0 loss at The Etihad, which condemned them to a 3-2 aggregate defeat, and Blanc admitted that the buck stops with him.

    The Frenchman may have signed a two-year extension with the French club in February but his price of becoming next Manchester United manager was slashed in from 25/1 to 13/1 on Wednesday (Paddy Power).

    Blanc has won the Ligue 1 title again this season but PSG's owners, Qatar Sports Investments, demand success in Europe and the world's best paid team in global sport (according to Sporting Intelligence's Global Sport Salaries Survey, 2015) have come up short again.

    Mourinho To PSG?

    PSG President, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, could yet be tempted to make a move for Mourinho as his next manager. The former Chelsea boss has been waiting in the wings for the United job and Bet Victor go 4/6 for Old Trafford to be the venue of his next job but the 10/1 for him to go to PSG could yet offer some value.

    Admittedly, Mourinho has twice rejected PSG before but a club that provides a healthy war chest for transfer windows may appeal to a manager who appears to have a shelf life at clubs.

    The powers that be at United have reservations about Mourinho's personality and managerial style. The Portuguese boss doesn't have a great reputation for developing youngsters and there is a fear that he could tarnish the club's reputation.

    Mourinho has won silverware wherever he has gone though and if United do want Mourinho then it may be prudent to act quickly, particularly if PSG are interested, after Van Gaal's reign reached a new nadir with the 3-0 loss at Tottenham at the weekend. The club are directionless, rudderless and clueless with the Dutchman at the helm and a new manager needs to be found quickly.

    Whether that is long-time target Mourinho or the under pressure Blanc remains to be seen...
