This is how much it will cost Manchester United to hire Spurs boss, Mauricio Pochettino – Radio Jambo



With tensions running high at Old Trafford, Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho’s job isn’t looking particularly secure.

The main target to replace him as manager next summer is Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino, but they will have to pay up to £40million for his services, according to The Sun.

The Argentine has done a good job at Tottenham, as they currently sit third in the Premier League table. Meanwhile, Manchester United are languishing in eighth.

If United’s poor form continues and they don’t qualify for the Champions League, it will actually be cheaper for the club to sack Mourinho due to a clause in his contract.

In May, Pochettino signed a new five year deal lasting until 2023 worth £8.5million per year, so Manchester United will have to pay out to hire him to the job.

He’s also turned down the job once before, when United instead hired Louis van Gaal, so he may take some persuading.

However, Pochettino has said that he wants to freshen up his squad in the transfer window. Spurs haven’t spent very much money at all compared to close rivals since Pochettino took over. They didn’t sign a single player in the summer window.

So if he’s not given the funds to sign his key transfer targets again, he may start to look elsewhere.

The current Spurs manager has also been a target for Real Madrid, who have struck a much needed run of form under new manager Santiago Solari.

Right now, Pochettino’s aims are to get his club into the new Tottenham Hotspur stadium, to qualify for the next stage of the Champions League, and secure a good position in the Premier League. It remains to be seen whether he’ll still be with Spurs next season.
