Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson suggested that he doesn't envisage a scenario where Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino could turn down Real Madrid if the Spanish giants come calling in the summer, when writing his regular column for Sky Sports.
The Argentine has really risen to prominence as a manager since being appointed as Tottenham boss in May 2014.
The manner in which he has galvanised somewhat of a failing group of players and provided a platform for the club's youngsters to shine has been incredibly impressive.
Unfortunately for the Lilywhites though, his fine work has not gone unnoticed, with the 45-year-old drawing many an admiring glare from various parts of the continent.
Pochettino's stock within the game has never been as high, with his Spurs side now considered to be genuine contenders for major honours, both domestically and on the continent.
"I worry for Mauricio Pochettino. He is one of the most sought-after managers in world football and I don't see how he turns down Real Madrid if they come calling."
Tottenham travel to the Emirates tomorrow to take on Arsenal in the North London Derby, and if they leave their bitter rival's home patch with all three points, Pochettino's reputation within the game will grow even further still.
