Tottenham Hotspur fans in the Transfer Tavern will be set for a testing summer this year as a number of their key men are reportedly wanted by rival clubs, including their manager.
Mauricio Pochettino has worked wonders at the club since his arrival from Southampton and the locals will be desperate to keep him for as long as possible.
The Argentine had thrown his future into doubt with comments he made after Tottenham’s FA Cup semi-final defeat and Chelsea have been rumoured to be interested in appointing him should Antonio Conte depart Stamford Bridge.
However, according to a report in the Daily Star, the Spurs boss is said to be ready to reject an approach from the Blues as he wants to continue with his project in north London. Pochettino made remarks that Tottenham needed to spend big this summer and it is believed Daniel Levy will provide him with the financial backing that is needed to remain competitive next season.
Tottenham fans in the Tavern will be delighted to hear that the Argentine manager is ready to refuse an offer from Chelsea to remain at White Hart Lane for as long as possible. The supporters will also be pleased that Levy will keep Pochettino happy by backing him in the transfer market this summer.
Spurs have finished in the top-four for the past three seasons and they were narrowly pipped to a Premier League title two seasons ago, so it’s no surprise the locals firmly believe that Pochettino is the right man to guide them to their first major trophy since 2008.
