According to reports, Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is set to snub any approach from Chelsea as widely speculated by different sources. Pochettino has been reportedly mulling over his options and his likelihood of an exit from Spurs was peaked when Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich told the club that he wanted the Argentine manager at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea are believed to be on the lookout for a new manager with Italian manager Antonio Conte set to leave the club after the finals of the FA Cup on Saturday. Conte and his men have suffered a disappointing 2017/18 season and Pochettino has been identified by Abramovich as the perfect replacement.
However, reports suggest that Pochettino will snub any advances from Chelsea as a confident Tottenham will make options available for him in the transfer market. Pochettino seemingly hit out at the Spurs hierarchy on the final day of the Premier League season as he insisted that the club needed to spend more to compete for silverware. He even hinted that he may leave the club if he didn’t receive any transfer backing from Daniel Levy.
It is believed that the Spurs hierarchy will back the Argentine in the transfer market and whatever hopes Chelsea had of wrestling him away from the North London outfit appears to have diminished, as he’ll be happy to remain with Spurs as long as sufficient funds are made available for the acquisition of quality players to enable him mount a title challenge
