If knocked down, today’s tell-all will get back up every time
With Ole Gunnar Solskær at the Manchester United wheel and Zinedine Zidane getting his feet under the table at Real Madrid for the second time, Tottenham Hotspur fans could have been forgiven for thinking they could look forward to a relaxing summer free from worry about the possibility of their popular, highly regarded manager having his head turned by another club. This may not be the case, however, as weekend reports suggest AC Milan are the latest European heavyweights to hitch their skirts at Mauricio Pochettino and will attempt to lure him to Italy with the promise of a £300m transfer kitty.
With Tottenham installed in their ridiculously well appointed new digs, Pochettino may not fancy a move to the comparatively shabby San Siro but any offer from Milan chief executive, Ivan Gazidis, would force his Tottenham counterpart, Daniel Levy, to loosen the Tottenham purse-strings and sanction the summer purchase of some expensive new players. As he approaches the end of his breakthrough season, Crystal Palace full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka is believed to feature on Pochettino’s wish-list, in a state of affairs that could spell bad news for Kieran Trippier.
