According to The Daily Telegraph Mauricio Pochettino has held positive discussions with Daniel Levy over his future, with Chelsea now resigned to the fact there is virtually no chance he will push for a move to Stamford Bridge.
Hopes have been raised that Pochettino will stay at Spurs and recommit himself by signing a new contract, and the article adds that sources claim talks between the Argentine and Levy have gone well and that more are scheduled.
The article adds that there has been doubts over Pochettino’s future last week after he revealed he would speak to Levy about the direction Spurs are heading in and urged the club to be brave.
It adds how Pochettino wants the green light to go ahead with a £150million overhaul of his Tottenham squad and start business immediately and the article says it seems Levy may be prepared to grant some of his manager’s wishes with the chairman keen for Pochettino to sign a new deal that could be worth £8.5m a year.
It goes on to say how Pochettino is committed to Tottenham until at least 2021, but Levy would like him to at least extend that by a further 12 months.
The article goes on to describe how Pochettino has been well aware that he has admirers elsewhere, particularly at Chelsea, but it does add that there is little optimism at Stamford Bridge that Pochettino will force his way out and Chelsea are now said to be focussing their attention elsewhere, with Luis Enrique currently rated as the likeliest successor to the Italian.
