Ferdinand feels Pochettino will coach Man United next year, adding that he is putting his money on the Argentine to sign for the Old Trafford club at the end of the current season.
Man United over the weekend sacked Ole Gunnar Solskjaer following their embarrassing Premier League 4-1 loss to Watford.
The Red Devils then put Michael Carrick to temporarily take charge of the first team as they look to appoint a new manager in the coming days.
“I don’t think that Pochettino leaves PSG during the season,” Ferdinand said on Vibe with FIVE.
“He’s a man of integrity, he’s a man of respect.
“I think he’s grateful for the opportunity to be at PSG and as a man, I think he will just say: “If they [Manchester United] want me that bad they will wait.”
He added, “I think from the media that we saw over the last couple of years when he was out of work, that for him Man United is the pinnacle, is the club he would love to get to, get his hands on and guide the club.
“He’s got a lot of stuff going on at PSG, so you have to be respectful in that sense.
“It’s about what PSG want as well because they are not the kind of club that will just relinquish their manager.
“I’m putting money on Pochettino, for the end of the season, start of next season, my money’s on Pochettino being manager.”
