One of the major parts of the Mauricio Pochettino era has been his side-by-side shots with players signing new deals. Spurs have signed up a huge raft of their top talent to new deals in the last two years, and it now appears that Pochettino himself is due a new mega deal.
Despite crashing out of the Champions League from a favourable position against Juventus, the Argentine continues to impress. An FA Cup semi-final awaits, as does a likely berth in the Champions League again following a 3-1 win at Stamford Bridge – their first in nearly three decades.
Indeed, The Daily Telegraph now claims that he’s due a major pay rise and a new long-term deal to stave off interest. Clubs like Real Madrid and former club Paris Saint-Germain have been heavily linked, and Spurs are seemingly desperate to tie down one of their most successful coaches in a long time.
With the club set to move into a new stadium, signing a new deal would be a major statement of intent that things will continue to improve at Tottenham. He is felt to be the major reason why the club has been able to find such consistency and form, with the 46-year-old currently in charge of the form team in 2018 – even ahead of Manchester City.
For Spurs, keeping their coach would be a major signal of their intent to keep improving and growing all the time, especially with him at the helm.
