Pochettino : Is chase by Chelsea and Manchester United
Blues boss Maurizio Sarri is already under pressure after only a season at Stamford Bridge following an alarming dip in form.
That will mean they start the search for another manager and they were interested in Mauricio Pochettino last summer before opting for Sarri who got his side off to a good start.
Abramovich can expect to run into strong opposition from Daniel Levy with the Argentine still having four years left to run on the contract he signed last May.
It could cost him upwards of £50 million in compensation and even then it might not be enough to get his man if Levy decides to dig his heals in.
Manchester United, though, are also in the race Pochetinno’s signature, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s start to life at the club could scupper those plans.
Solskjaer won his first eight games in charge of United before drawing his ninth with Burnley 2-2 earlier this week.
The Norwegian’s early wins, though, included the likes of Arsenal and Pochettino’s Spurs.
