Report discloses Daniel Levy's plan to offer Mauricio Pochettino record-breaking Spurs contract

Daniel Levy reportedly wants to make Mauricio Pochettino the highest paid Spurs manager in history.

According to the Daily Mail, Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy is willing to shatter the club's record and make Mauricio Pochettino Spurs' highest paid manager of all time.

Pochettino, 44, took the reins at White Hart Lane back in 2014, leaving Premier League rivals Southampton to replace Tim Sherwood in the Tottenham dugout.

The Argentine's first season in charge was a promising one, as whilst he was saddled with a host of players who he clearly didn't want - the likes of Younes Kaboul, Vlad Chiriches, Paulinho, Etienne Capoue and Emmanuel Adebayor spring to mind - Pochettino did help bring through a crop of young players such as Eric Dier, Nabil Bentaleb and Harry Kane.

That youth movement has continued this season, with Dele Alli taking the Premier League by storm as Tottenham have turned from top four hopefuls to title contenders under Pochettino's guidance.

Unsurprisingly, Tottenham are desperate to keep hold of Pochettino and keep his progress going, and the Daily Mail report that talks have been held over a new contract for the Spurs boss.

It's stated that Daniel Levy is so keen to make sure that Pochettino stays, that he is willing to offer him a record-breaking contract, with Pochettino possibly being offered a deal to make him the highest paid manager in the club's history.

This has been Spurs' best season for some time, and even if they don't end up pipping Leicester City to the Premier League title, there is something special happening at White Hart Lane. Much of that is down to Pochettino, and it seems that Levy is ready to reward him handsomely for his exploits in his two years at the club.

Do you think Pochettino deserves to be Tottenham's best paid manager of all time?
