According to The Sun, Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy is facing a huge battle to keep hold of manager Mauricio Pochettino amid interest from Manchester United and Real Madrid.

It has been reported by the British tabloid that United are ready to pay £40 million to secure the services of Pochettino next summer.

 

Spanish and European giants Madrid are also claimed to be interested in the former Southampton boss.

According to The Sun, Pochettino is frustrated with Tottenham’s lack of investment in the squad, with the North London outfit not signing a single player in the summer transfer window.

Worry for Tottenham Hotspur fans?

Pochettino has been superb for Tottenham since he was appointed the club's manager in the summer of 2014.

Spurs are doing well at the moment and are very much in the challenge for the Premier League title this season.

Tottenham could also progress to the last-16 stage of the Champions League this campaign, and Spurs fans should not worry too much about Pochettino leaving next summer especially if the team end up in the top four of the Premier League once again.
