Spurs to offer Pochettino much-improved contract

Tottenham are set to offer manger Mauricio Pochettino a much-improved new contract at the club to keep him away from growing interest from Real Madrid, reports claim. The Argentine manager’s reputation was enhanced once again by Spurs’ 3-1 win at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, Tottenham’s first win away to Chelsea in 28 years.

In a concerted move to tie down all of their high-value assets, Tottenham’s two-goal hero against Chelsea Dele Alli, star striker Harry Kane, as well as Jan Vertonghen, Hugo Lloris, Son Heung-min and Christian Eriksen are all expected to sign up to new and improved contracts in the coming months, before and after the 2018 World Cup.

Real Madrid and, to some extent Paris Saint-Germain, are very keen on Pochettino as they consider life after Zinedine Zidane and Unai Emery, respectively, but Spurs have planned an especially lucrative new deal for Pochettino to fend off that interest, according to The Telegraph.

Spurs are desperate for Pochettino to lead the club into their new ground next season and believe the manager himself is keen to see out the project he started four years ago. Daniel Levy is prepared to make the Argentine one of the Premier League’s best paid managers. Pochettino joined the north London side in 2014 from Southampton, and signed a new five-year deal in 2016 worth a reported £5.5m-a-year. The report claims Pochettino would have to make it clear he wants to stay with Tottenham before the club would sanction a considerable pay rise in his contract.
