Mauricio Pochettino could be ready for a spectacular return to Tottenham Hotspur after the PSG boss told the Ligue 1 side that he wanted to return to his former club.
Pochettino was dismissed by Spurs in November 2019, just months after taking the club to the first Champions League final, and replaced by Jose Mourinho.
The former Southampton manager was named PSG manager in January this year, returning to the club he represented on the pitch for three years, but things haven’t been going well for Pochettino or Spurs since then.
Although PSG failed to win Ligue 1 after Lille secured the title on the final day, Spurs fired Mourinho and finished seventh, only qualifying for the Europa Conference League, and ‘Poch’ could now return to north London to replace the man who replaced him.
According to Athletic, Spurs has been in discussions with the 49-year-old about a possible return and is interested in returning to North London.
French outlet TF1 confirms the news, claiming that the manager “wants” the return from Paris, although it is thought PSG has no interest in letting it go at this time.
Argentina still has a year on his contract at the Parc des Princes and the club would prefer to avoid another season of turmoil, following the recent dismissal of Thomas Tuchel.
This would mean that Pochettino had to resign from the club and the Spurs would probably have to buy the final year of his contract.
Despite failing to win the championship, or the Champions League, the PSG boss won the Coupe de France and beat Barcelona and Bayern Munich in the Champions League, before losing to Manchester City in the semifinals.
Daniel Levy still has a good relationship with Argentina, despite being fired, and Premier League fans need a much-needed relationship with fans.
The club’s performance on the pitch mixed with the collapse of European Premier League debates has not made him popular, and he also has to fight to keep Harry Kane at the club.
If Pochettino does not move to Spurs, Erik ten Hag, Roberto Martinez, Ralf Rangnick and Graham Potter remain on their wanted list.
PSG, on the other hand, could turn to Antonio Conte or Zinedine Zidane, with leaders Inter and Real Madrid leaving both clubs.
