After seeing Mauricio Pochettino strive with his team in both the Premier League and the Champions League, Spurs’ hierarchy are currently in the works of offering their manager a new contract extension in order to send rumors linking the Argentine manager to Real Madrid.
According to reports from The Telegraph, the North London club wants to hold on to their manager for as long as they can, an extension that can significantly rise up Pochettino’s current earning of £5.5m-per-year in order to secure his future with the club amid interests from all Europe especially Real Madrid and big spenders Paris Saint-Germain who are keen on signing him in the Summer.
Pochettino, who took charge of the Spurs team in the summer of 2014, has since then turned the club around and are now actually posing a threat in the across Europe. With a good form this season, the Spurs has managed to beat North London rivals Arsenal in a 1-0 win, which was immediately followed by holding Italian champions Juventus to a 2-2 draw at Turin being the first to score two goals at their home, which is another feat the Argentine manager has achieved after defeating current Champions Real Madrid in group stage.
Although – since joining the Spurs as a manager after an impressive stint with Southampton – Pochettino is yet to win a single trophy for the English club since 2014 but with the turnaround he has made to the club, this has seen him earnmarked as one of Europe’s most wanted manager in football.
A move for the Argentinian to one of Europe’s top clubs could well happen in the future or if the 45-year-old decides to reject the offer that will be given to extend his stay with Spurs.
Meanwhile, another chance to watch Pochettino’s side is few hours away as they will be facing Rochdale in the fifth round of the FA Cup on Sunday after beating Newport County in the 4th round.
