Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has remade his current club into a true Premier League title contender and UEFA Champions League regular. Since coming up from Southampton in 2014, Pochettino has improved Spurs to a club that is solidly among the best in the Premier League’s big six.

Spurs were the last team standing between the last two league champions, the last contender to get mathematically eliminated. His phenomenal work has been noticed by the biggest clubs in the world, and now White Hart Lane are looking to make sure he’s locked down on a longer term deal to make sure he stays put in north London.

According to multiple outlets, Spurs are looking to offer the Argentine a new big money deal so that he will be in charge when their new and massively upgraded White Hart Lane home ground opens up for the start of next season.

NBC Sports writes:

Tottenham’s impressive 2-2 draw at Juventus on Tuesday in the Champions League has further enhanced his pedigree as one of the brightest managers in the game today.

Pochettino signed a new five-year contract in 2016 said to be worth over $7.5 million per year, but the former Espanyol and Southampton manager is reportedly attracting interest from Real Madrid and his former club Paris Saint-Germain.

While re-signing Pochettino is a priority, the club is not treating this concern immediate fashion. It’s expected that the deal will be hammered out after the season has been completed.

As The Guardian points out, Pochettino “signed a new five-year contract in 2016 worth £5.5m-a-year, which means Tottenham are under no pressure to try to reach an agreement with the 45 year-old.”

With Tottenham re-signing several of their star players to new deals in recent years, and giving contract extensions to franchise cornerstones like Dele Alli and Harry Kane, the north London side is doing all they can to keep the club core in place moving forward. The key to retaining the nucleus could likely be making sure Mauricio Pochettino sticks around.

Spurs, currently one point behind Chelsea for the fourth and final Champions League slot in the table, will next travel to Rochdale for a FA Cup fifth round encounter.
