Sorry Man United! Chelsea ready to offer £50 million and get Spurs Pochettino deal done and dusted!
Reports have claimed Chelsea are looking to beat off Manchester United for the signing of Tottenham boss Maricio Pochettino.
It is highly-regarded in that Uunited are looking to take Pochettino to Old Trafford in the summer, despite the fact Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made a terrific start to life as boss at Old Trafford and brought the positive vibe back to the club.
Reports have claimed United are massive fans of Pochettino and see him as the future of the club, after the Argentine turned Spurs into one of the best sides in the Premier League, and all indications suggested they had no real contenders for Poch.
However, reports on the Sky Sports website has now claimed Chelsea are making a plan B in case Maurizio Sarri does not live upto expectations this season and have taken a keen interest in trying to prise Pochettino away from Spurs.
Sarri made an instant impact at Stamford Bridge but results and performances have dipped since he suffered the first defeat of his reign against Pochettino’s Spurs side back in November, and they believe they can prise Pochettino away from Spurs with a £50 million offer.
But the former Southampton manager’s preference remains United, should he opt to call time on his five-year tenure at Spurs.
Could United or Chelsea prise Pochettino away from Tottenham?
Most Tottenham fans would tell you that Pochettino is going nowhere and he is staying at Tottenham, but Chairman Daniel Levy is a business man and will do business if United or Chelsea offer the right amount of money to acquire Pochettino.
The young Argentine has proven to be a huge success both in England and Europe, and if he had the funds that a move to Chelsea or United could offer, who knows what he could win.
