It is utter delight for the Tottenham Hotspur fans enjoying their day off in the Transfer Tavern today, following reports from Football Insider that the club are pressing ahead with a £35m deal to keep a hold of manager Mauricio Pochettino.
The Argentine has hugely impressed in North London since his arrival from Southampton in 2014, leading Spurs to a shock title challenge this season with a vibrant young side.
Naturally, as a result, the ex-Espanyol coach has been linked with moves to both Manchester United and previously Chelsea after his continued good work in the Premier League despite a largely unheralded arrival as Nigel Adkins’ successor on the South Coast in 2013.
Real Madrid are also said to have cast a keen eye over his situation at White Hart Lane and could offer him a blockbuster move back to La Liga.
However, the White Hart Lane outfit are believed to be close to agreeing a five-year deal on improved terms with the 44-year old, understood to be worth around £35m.
Should Pochettino be Man United’s Number 1 target? Or would he be silly to leave Spurs at the present time?
