Jose Mourinho has a rebuilding job on his hands at Tottenham with the club languishing in fourteenth place in the Premier League following a poor start to the campaign.
Among the problems that the new Spurs boss has to deal with is the prospect of three of the club’s first-team stars potentially running their contracts down and leaving on a free transfer at the end of the season.
Christian Eriksen, Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld are all into the final year of their respective contracts with the club and will be allowed to sign a pre-contract agreement with European clubs teams in January.
However, according to a report in the Daily Mirror, all three players are now open to the possibility of signing new deals at the club following Mourinho’s appointment.
The new Spurs boss has apparently told all the players that they start with a clean slate under his leadership. Furthermore, the report claims that the 56-year-old believes he can get the best out of all three of the contract rebels.

If it is true that all three are now open to the idea of signing new deals with the club, then that indicates that the relationship between Pochettino and some first-team players was much poorer than reported. It looks like the Argentine had all but lost the dressing room thus leaving Levy with little choice but to make a change.
