The only reason Spurs should offload Mauricio Pochettino

Tottenham Hotspur may face stiff opposition to keep their manager come the summer, with Real Madrid and Manchester United both said to be interested in Pochettino (Telegraph).

Since arriving at Tottenham, Poch has achieved so much on a budget of next to nothing.

Spurs currently sit third in the Premier League, enjoying their best ever start, as well as a position in the knockouts of the Champions League and the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup.

The club have finished in the top three for three consecutive seasons now, and are looking to make it four, and all this on a net budget of under £30m.

The likes of United and Real Madrid do have far more pedigree when it comes to winning trophies, and a whole lot more cash to splash for their managers.

You can see why a young gaffer might be lured to some of the biggest clubs in the world, but Tottenham should only let Poch leave under one circumstance.

If Pochettino is determined to leave, and asks to go, there is little you can do to keep him.

If this happens, Spurs should get the best price for him, hire a new young manager like Eddie Howe, and invest the money in the squad.

However, unless Poch really wants to leave, Spurs should stick it to United and Real, and back the Argentine with as much spending power as possible!
