AC Milan to offer Pochettino a £300 million budget to entice him to Serie A

AC Milan are plotting an audacious move to tempt Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino to Serie A.

The Italian giants want the Argentine to take over at the San Siro, with the promise of a £300m transfer budget to help restore the side to former glories.

Milan are seven-time European champions, but have endured several seasons of mediocrity of late and are struggling to reach next season’s Champions League.

Current manager Gennaro Gattuso is under pressure following another underwhelming season, with the club now targeting Pochettino as the man to take them forward.

Pochettino has previously been linked with a move away from Spurs, with both Real Madrid and Manchester United reportedly interested before appointing Zinedine Zidane and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer respectively.

The Mirror are reporting former Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis, now working at Milan, will try to lure Pochettino to Italy to help rejuvenate the club.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy will be hoping to keep the 47-year-old at the club, with Tottenham likely to have increased transfer funds this summer having finally moved into their new £1bn stadium.
