Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy has reportedly told the club’s boardmembers that he will reject any approach from Manchester United for Mauricio Pochettino. According to the Sun, Levy is determined to keep the Argentinian for at least one more season.
Despite caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s impressive start to his United career, Pochettino remains The club’s top target for next season. The report claims that United are ready to offer Pochettino a five-year-contract worth €50m, while they are ready to pay up to €20m to convince Tottenham to let their manager leave.
But Levy, a notoriously difficult negotiator, is ready to hold firm and is even ready to give Pochettino the final say in all transfers. Tottenham has been in good form this season and the club currently sits in third place on the table, six points behind league leaders Liverpool.
