Mauricio Pochettino will leave Tottenham Hotspur this summer, according to former Arsenal defender Lauren.

The Argentine has been continually linked with potentially taking over from Jose Mourinho at Manchester United, although the rumours have somewhat gone quiet in the past couple of weeks after interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has guided the Old Trafford outfit to an impressive seven match unbeaten run.

Real Madrid are another club to have been said to be monitoring Pochettino’s situation at Spurs. The Spanish giants.

Real sacked Julen Lopetegui at the end of October and turned to Santiago Solari, initially on a caretaker basis. In mid-November they gave him a contract until 2021, however are still keen on Pochettino (Guardian).

Pochettino signed a new five-year contract at Tottenham in May worth up to £8.5m each year, but is still linked with the two giants.

Former Arsenal defender Lauren has claimed that Pochettino will depart North London in the summer for either United or Madrid.

“I do expect Pochettino to leave Tottenham this summer,” he told bwin.

“I think he will have a decision between Man Utd or Real Madrid.

“Tottenham are becoming a bigger team, but they’re nowhere near the size of Man Utd or Real Madrid and as a manager he will want to see what he can achieve at the very top level.

“These teams will give him a real chance to win the Champions League.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Just one more person that believes he knows the inside scoop. There are probably only 2 people that know whether MoPo will leave or not. Daniel Levy and MoPo himself. Everyone else that pontificates about this subject is doing just that. If he goes to RM or Manure….it will cost either of those clubs some huge money to allow his Spurs contract to be broken. Contracts nowadays just seem to be an exit negotiating point anyway.

  2. Another idiot, with his own (ignorant) agenda, touting our manager out of the club. I think that every Man U, Arsenal, Real M, Liverpool, Barca player, or ex-player, ex-manager, pundit or press, would love Poch, Kane, Eriksen, and just about every key Spurs player, to leave Tottenham Hotspur! They cannot, any of them, bear the fact that there’s a new kid on the block (although actually, if any of these fools knew their football history they’d know Tottenham’s trophy cabinet is bigger than most clubs out there) but which is not as greedy, bloated, and as entitled, as their own so-called clique. The reason for all this? Obscene amounts of money, short-termism, and narrow minded blinkeredness! They can’t bear the thought that a club like Spurs, developing strongly from within and not spending the ridiculous amounts that make the rich clubs richer and the poor poorer, have players not earning as much as them, but outperforming them on the pitch. A squad of mostly young players, a band of brothers all ..as opposed to an eclectic mix of expensively gathered egos, in ego driven clubs, with their own profiles in mind rather than the colleagues around them. If Spurs hold their nerve in the face of all this (and it happened in the recent past with Berbatov, Carrick, Modric and Bale etc., players that the old Spurs, decades back, would have kept) and given the fact they’ve had no home for 18 months, along with crucial injuries at critical times over the past 4 glorious seasons, then we can change the attitude of football in general. Spurs can be the marker, the leading light, for any great historic club that’s been left far behind by the fat giants since the advent of the Bosman ruling and the Premier League nearly 30 years ago.
    As good as that’s been for players, it was never meant to create this greedy football world with mega rich players, just a handful of very rich clubs, and skint fans. it has created a divisive football world, as the Arabs, Russians and Americans later joined in, with less of an equal footing for clubs, allowing a tiny few to stuff themselves full at the top table while throwing crumbs to clubs that once were always in with a chance of greatness themselves. Leicester City was a fluke, a one-off, which won’t happen again for the foreseeable future. But up until the 1980s, almost ALL clubs in the top 2 or 3 tiers had a chance of winning great things, and glory was wonderfully shared all round.
