Former Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood has claimed that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy will turn down any offer that Manchester United make for Mauricio Pochettino.
The British press has been dominated by news linking the Argentine to the managerial vacancy at Manchester United over the past few days.
Although Pochettino has insisted he is focused on his job at Tottenham, he has not outrightly denied the rumours linking him with the Man Utd job.
Tim Sherwood, the man who Pochettino replaced at the helm at Tottenham over four years ago reckons that Daniel Levy will be worried about the link.
Speaking during Sky Sports’ ‘The Debate‘, the 49-year-old said, “Daniel Levy will be worried because it’s Manchester United, any other club in the Premier League, forget about it,”
Sherwood further went on to say that Levy will even turn down a £200million offer from the Red Devils for the 46-year-old Argentine.
He added, “I don’t think he will go. I think he is halfway through building something very special. How will Daniel [Levy] react to it? Daniel will dismiss it. You could give £200million at this present moment in time for Pochettino, Daniel Levy will turn that down.”
While Daniel Levy is certainly a tough cookie when it comes to negotiations, if Pochettino expresses his desire to leave the club, there is little that the club or Levy could do to hold on to him. Spurs fans will certainly be hoping that Sherwood is right and that the Argentine will want to stay to finish his project.
