Transfer balls: Spurs lose Pochettino to Manchester United in cut-price deal
Transfer balls: Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino, 44, has a £10m buyout clause in his contract, says the Sun.
SunSport can reveal any clubs looking to poach the Argentine will have to stump up the massive eight-figure sum to have any chance.
Can this be the same SunSport which in February pitted Pochettino in a head-to-head with Jose Mourinho for the Manchester United job, telling its readers:
[Spurs] Chairman Daniel Levy is a notoriously tough and difficult negotiator who is willing to stand firm on keeping the club’s best talent… Levy will resist United’s interest but is expected to demand £20m compensation if Pochettino leaves for United. However, a tribunal is more likely to set the figure at around £6m-£8m.
Such are the facts.
