New report delivers big Mauricio Pochettino boost for Tottenham Hotspur
Tottenham Hotspur fans are dreaming of Mauricio Pochettino’s return to the Spurs dugout this summer. Now, a report from Goal Espana have detailed a boost – that Pochettino has asked to leave Paris Saint-Germain this summer. He has a contract until 2022, but wants to depart early.
Pochettino rejoined PSG earlier this season, having initially first wore the colours of the French club as a player. Spending more than 12 months on the sidelines, Pochettino joined his first club since leaving Spurs in PSG. But the Argentine has not impressed – losing the Ligue 1 title to Lille.
That is, despite winning 23 of his 34 games in charge. Now, the latest report claims he has asked to leave PSG early – only signing an 18-month deal when taking over on January 2. Pochettino has been strongly linked with Spurs, where he clocked up 293 matches as manager of the London side.
The report claims that the working relationship between Pochettino and Leonardo is seeing the Argentine looking towards the exit door. Spurs are not on their own in pursuit of Pochettino, though, with Real Madrid also interested. Spurs fans continue to make it clear they want him back.
Can Tottenham really convince Pochettino? Report is a big boost…
Pochettino would surely welcome a return to Spurs. He enjoyed a brilliant few years at Tottenham – the only thing missing was a trophy of some sort. Returning to Spurs would balance the ship and given the relationship between Poch and Harry Kane – it might convince the latter to remain.
The report is an enormous boost for Spurs as it is clear he wants to leave PSG and if he joins any club, Daniel Levy’s side will be at the top of the list. But whether Spurs can convince PSG to sanction Pochettino’s exit remains to be seen. This summer, the managerial merry-go-round is getting started.
