Tottenham look like they are finally out of the Premier League title race after recent defeats to Burnley and Chelsea.
Spurs are now nine points behind leaders Liverpool and it looks like their hopes have been extinguished until next season.
The Champions League is still to play for but domestic success is off the agenda.
Mauricio Pochettino’s future looks set to be firmly open for discussion this summer too.
According to The Sun, Real Madrid fancy their chances of poaching the boss.
The piece states that the Spurs boss has told chairman Daniel Levy that his burning desire is to win titles and that it might take him ten years to achieve that with Tottenham.
That doesn’t bode well.
At Madrid, he would be given the financial backing to challenge Barcelona each and every year.
Should Pochettino leave for the Spanish capital it could turn some of Spurs’ stars heads.
Danish playmaker Christian Eriksen has been linked with Madrid in the past and Pochettino’s departure would surely spell the end of his time in North London.
Spanish publication AS reported in January that Eriksen would reject Spurs’ offer of a new deal as his heart is set on moving to the Spanish giants.
If Pochettino leaves then Eriksen seems certain to follow.
The 27-year-old has contributed seven goals and 12 assists in all competitions this season and whoever replaces him would have big shoes to fill.
The summer looks increasingly likely to be an uncertain one for those of a Spurs persuasion.
