Tottenham are reportedly preparing to offer manager Mauricio Pochettino a new improved contract in order to keep the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United at arms length, according to the Daily Mirror.
The Argentine tactician still has three-and-a-half years remaining on his current deal, but has formed a strong understanding and working relationship with chairman Daniel Levy.
And Levy is keen to reward Pochettino for his good work in building a young squad that is on course to secure Champions League qualification for next season, as well as seeing the club make a profit in the transfer market.
Pochettino currently earns somewhere in the region of £3.5million-per-season, and could see his wage rise significantly should he commit to another long-term deal.
Levy has granted the 43-year-old free reign over the football side of things at the club, which is more freedom than he’s granted any of his previous managers and even has the final say over transfers coming in and out of White Hart Lane.
