Tottenham to ward off Chelsea and Man United interest in boss with bumper new deal

Tottenham Hotspur are looking to ward off interest from Chelsea and Manchester United in manager Mauricio Pochettino by offering him a new contract, report the Daily Mirror.

The Argentine has been lauded for his work at White Hart Lane this season as he now approaches a season-and-a-half in charge of the North London club.

His exciting young team are on course to qualify for the Champions League this season and have emerged as one of the most competitive in the country over recent months.

Off the field, he has helped rid the club of some of the expensive flops brought in following the sale of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid in 2013, helping chairman Daniel Levy turn a profit.

As a result, both Chelsea and Manchester United have been touted as potential destinations for the former Southampton manager should they be able to prize him away from Spurs.

The Mirror claim the 43-year old earns around £3.5m annually, though that figure would ‘significantly increase’ should he commit to a longer term deal.
