Pochettino will lose £12.5m if he quits Tottenham amid Man Utd and Real Madrid interest – The SunNovember 19, 2019
MAURICIO POCHETTINO would kiss goodbye to £12.5million if he walks out on Tottenham.
But it is looking like the best way for him to follow his dream of managing one of Europe’s top guns.
Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Manchester United are all keen on Poch becoming their next boss and keeping their fingers crossed Spurs sack him so they do not have to pay the North Londoners more than £30m in compensation.
But Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy will only axe the Argentine as a last resort as he does not want to pay him the £12.5m he would be due for being given the boot.
Spurs are 14th in the Prem after mustering just three top-flight wins.
Pochettino has failed to win a trophy since taking over at Tottenham in May 2014, but remains highly-rated and in-demand after guiding them to four successive top-four finishes.
He also led them to the Champions League final for the first time in their history last season when they were beaten 2-0 by Liverpool in Madrid.
And, despite their poor start, Spurs are on the verge of qualifying for the group stage of Europe’s elite competition again this time.
Pochettino, who signed a new five-year deal worth £8.5m in June 2018, had threatened to quit if Spurs had lifted the trophy.
Jose Mourinho is believed to be one of the candidates to replace Poch if he goes.
