Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino will have plenty of options to choose from in the summer should he decide to quit White Hart Lane as Real Madrid, PSG and Man United have reportedly expressed interest in the Argentinean.

Pochettino is currently one of the most desired managers in football after leading Spurs to third and second in the last two seasons and beating Madrid 3-1 earlier this month. But despite interest from the European elite, he has insisted that he is fully committed to the North London club.

The 45-year-old said earlier this month: “For me, the most important club in the world is Tottenham and for me, it is the best club in the world.

“I need to feel like this. That emotion is real because I cannot fake it. I cannot translate that emotion to the players, I cannot translate that emotion to my chairman, to create the trust if you don’t really believe.

“Today, for me, Tottenham is in my heart.”

However, Pochettino might be convinced to swap clubs in the summer should he deem the project interesting enough,  and PSG might be the club that could feed that need of the Argentinean.

PSG have identified him as potential replacement for Unai Emery as it is understood they have given the Spaniard an ultimatum to get the club to at least to the Champions League semi-finals this year in their bid to conquer Europe.

Such a deal, however, will be dependent on Jose Mourinho’s decision on his future come the season’s end. The Portuguese is rumoured to be interested in the PSG job and the French side will also prioritise him over Pochettino should he decide to leave Old Trafford.  

If this happens, the Red Devils could end up snatching Pochettino in bid to fill the hole left by Mourinho’s departure.

However, there are no signs of the Argentinean looking to move any time soon with earlier stories linking him to an amazing 15-year extension to his stay at White Hart Lane.
