Mauricio Pochettino must leave Paris Saint-Germain amid intense speculation over a move to Manchester United, says Jamie Carragher.

Pochettino is believed to be a leading candidate to succeed the sacked Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Old Trafford and return to the Premier League two years after his exit from Tottenham.

However, the Argentine has insisted he is happy at PSG, where he currently has a star-studded squad riding high 11 points clear at the summit of Ligue 1.

The chief target for Pochettino will be to finally end the Parisiens' long wait for Champions League glory, though they will have to make do with a runners-up spot in Group A after blowing a one-goal lead to lose 2-1 at Manchester City on Wednesday night.

The balance, disjointed nature of PSG's team - with the formidable trio of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe leading the attack - was subject to particular scrutiny after a damaging loss, with Carragher claiming that it is the presence of that "big three" that should drive Pochettino to leave the club.

“Pochettino has to get out of the club," Carragher said in his role as a Champions League pundit for CBS Sports.

"If he has the chance to go to Manchester United, I would be gone tomorrow and it’s because of those three stars."
