Spurs to offer new deal to Pochettino
Tottenham Hotspur are willing to offer Mauricio Pochettino a lucrative new contract to lead the club into their £850 million stadium as reward for his impressive work that has attracted a number of suitors.
Pochettino further enhanced his reputation with the 2-2 Champions League draw against Juventus, in which Tottenham came from behind to dominate their hosts.
Real Madrid are interested in Pochettino, while the Argentinian's former club Paris St-Germain are also admirers. But Spurs are desperate for Pochettino to stay and believe he is keen to see out the project he started almost four years ago.
Having joined Tottenham in 2014 from Southampton, Pochettino signed a five-year contract in 2016 worth £5.5m a year, which means Spurs are under no pressure to try to reach an agreement with the 45-year-old.
But in May it will be two years since his last extension and Spurs are understood to be ready to hand Pochettino a pay rise and a new deal if he ignores the interest from Real and PSG.
Daniel Levy, the Tottenham chairman, claimed in Pochettino's book, 'Brave New World', that he would like "nothing more" than for the manager to see through his work over the next 10 to 15 years.
Pochettino responded by saying he would "love" to stay at Spurs for 10 to 15 years and "sign that contract".
