Tottenham Hotspur enjoyed a fantastic 2018/19 campaign last season, especially in Europe as the went on a historic Champions League run all the way to the final in Madrid.
Spurs fans would have been fearing the worst when Harry Kane picked up two ankle ligament injuries, particularly with Heung Min Son on international duty during the first one.
However, one man in particular stood up to be counted just when Spurs and Pochettino needed him, Fernando Llorente.
The Spanish centre-forward led the line well for Spurs, scoring a header against Borussia Dortmund in the round of 16, a hip goal against Man City in the quarter-finals, and he then set up Lucas Moura’s 96th-minute winner in the semis against Ajax.
However, the former World Cup winner was eventually let go by Spurs this summer as his contract ran out, despite reports that the club have offered him a new deal with reduced terms (Standard).
Gian Luca Di Marzio now claims that Manchester United are weighing up a last-minute deal for the striker if they are still short come deadline day.
