Manchester United & Chelsea target to be rewarded by Tottenham for loyalty

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino is to be rewarded for his loyalty, in light of incessant links to Chelsea and Manchester United.

In recent days, the Argentine coach has emerged as a potential candidate to replace Louis van Gaal at Old Trafford and Guus Hiddink at Stamford Bridge, as the long-term successor to Jose Mourinho.

It’s easy to see why the manager has become such a coveted figure, having made Spurs title contenders after cultivating an entertaining style of play and a young squad of low-maintenance starlets.

Despite having three and a half years left on his contact, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is set to extend Pochettino’s current deal in order to keep him at the club.

According to the Mirror, Poch—who joined Spurs form Southampton—earns a basic wage of approximately £3.5 million, with that figure set to be increased should he commit to a long-term deal.

It remains to be seen whether the 43-year-old will agree to commit to Spurs and complete his mission at the club, or if he will be tempted by the bright lights of Manchester or west London.
