Manchester United could snap up Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino for £32million in complex deal, according to the Sun.
The fee United would have to stump up to ensure one of the world’s most sought after managers made his way to Old Trafford certainly isn’t cheap.
Pochettino was one of the top names on the bookies’ lists when the Red Devils parted ways with Jose Mourinho last December, but interim manager’s great start landed him the job full time.
The Sun report £32million would be the fee needed to buy the Argentine manager out of his Spurs contract, which still has over three and a half years left to run.
Then there’s the small matter of dealing with shrewd Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy, who doesn’t have the greatest relationship with Man United following the transfers of Teddy Sheringham, Michael Carrick and Dimitar Berbatov.
Levy will be desperate to stop his manager joining a fierce Premier League rival, but the Old Trafford club have shown in recent seasons that they are not afraid to splash the cash.
