The Argentine appears to be the frontrunner for the role after initially holding talks with the club last week.
Mauricio Pochettino Tells Paris Saint-Germain He Wants to Return to Tottenham
Search for New Manager May Have End in Sight
Tottenham’s search for a new manager may be edging towards an end.
The North London side have been without a permanent manager since April following the departure of Jose Mourinho. Ryan Mason was appointed as manager until the end of the season, winning four of his six games.
Spurs and Daniel Levy have continued to look for a replacement while Mason was tasked with steering the ship. The club have gone through numerous targets – Ajax boss Erik ten Hag was considered the early favourite, as well former RB Leipzig boss Ralf Ragnick.
Current Belgium manager was also on the shortlist of names to replace Mourinho, with the club reportedly beginning talks with the Spaniard.
However, it appears that a return of Mauricio Pochettino may be the preferred option. Talks between the two parties have already taken place.
According to Gold, the 49-year-old has told PSG that he would like to leave the club, despite only joining in January this year.
However, there may still be plenty of hurdles for Tottenham to cross. The compensation would likely be a world record fee, and the Argentine is under contract until 2022 with the option to extend that by a year.
As a result, it may prove a tough move for Tottenham to complete.
According to Jason Burt of The Telegraph, the return of Pochettino to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is unlikely. However, Tottenham fans will be hoping that they will be able to jump those hurdles and allow Pochettino to start what he wants to finish.
