Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern are concerned with the latest developments coming from Real Madrid after Zinedine Zidane left his role as manager.
Despite penning a new deal with the club earlier in the week, Madrid are believed to be interested in luring Mauricio Pochettino from Spurs. Luckily for the Lilywhites, the new contract does not contain a release clause. However, that won’t stop Florentino Perez from pursuing his services. He said in his book that he is happy at Tottenham, but if Real Madrid calls, you have to listen.
Our punters are hopeful the Argentine will remain at the club ahead of a pivotal summer. Owner Daniel Levy must back the ex-Southampton manager in the transfer window if he wants to keep him at the club. With Danny Rose surely set to depart, a new left-back should be a priority.
Reports in Germany have suggested that Bayern Munich will look to sell Juan Bernat in the upcoming window to streamline their squad and generate funds to land Christian Pulisic. Tottenham should take advantage and bring him to White Hart Lane. He made just 12 appearances for the Bavarians last season, struggling to displace David Alaba in the starting eleven.
An escape route to the Premier League could be the perfect move for the Spaniard as he looks to relaunch his career. Valued at £10.8 by Transfermarkt, Bernat is a natural left-back but can also cover left midfield or left wing. Still only 25-years-old, he has plenty of time to continue his development. Under Pochettino, he could become a top player.
Tottenham fans, thoughts?
