Tottenham are bracing themselves for a summer approach from Real Madrid for manager Mauricio Pochettino.
The European champions are monitoring Pochettino, having sacked Julen Lopetegui in October and despite appointing Santiago Solari on a deal until 2021, are interested in making a move for the Spurs boss.
Tuesday’s 1-1 draw in Barcelona secured Spurs passage to the Champions League knock-out stages and saw Pochettino’s reputation grow further, having turned Tottenham into competitors both domestically and in Europe despite financial restraints as the club await their move into the new stadium at White Hart Lane.
Spurs did not sign a single player in the summer transfer market, and the hierarchy at the club face a difficult task to keep Pochettino at the club should an approach be made from one of Europe’s leading clubs.
The Guardian are reporting that Manchester United also hold an interest in the Argentinian, despite Jose Mourinho’s position not appearing to be under immediate threat.
The Old Trafford club were linked for a move for Pochettino in 2016, prior to Mourinho’s appointment at the club.
