The Tottenham Hotspur boss recently said he would be happy to commit to the club for 10 or 15 years.
In recent comments published by the Telegraph, Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino admitted that he would be happy to sign a 15-year contract at the club if Daniel Levy put it on the table, but could the Spurs boss's plans depend on his chairman's long-term transfer intentions?
After all, Pochettino will know he is building an outstanding team in North London, but the prospect of remaining for the next decade and more will only be enticing if he is allowed to reap the subsequent rewards, namely watching this impressively assembled young side mature and ultimately succeed together.
While some Tottenham fans will be quick to point to their players' love for the club and the long-term contracts many are on, the decision rests with Levy as to just how long the biggest names will remain.
After all, a 10- or 15-year contract for the boss means current deals for the likes of Harry Kane and Dele Alli will have long since expired and, while new players will take their place, Pochettino will know the next eight to 10 years could see huge success if everyone remains.
Levy is a businessman and he knows Tottenham have some of the most attractive commodities in the game. It is a sad way to think but that is football and, if frankly absurd fees head his way in due course, saying no becomes increasingly less viable from a financial standpoint.
Hopefully Levy will know that success on the field outweighs potential business off it and, if the current crop of Tottenham players show the same kind of commitment as their manager, Spurs could be winning silverware both domestically and in Europe for years to come.
