Former Tottenham manager Pochettino is in advanced talks to succeed sacked Thomas Tuchel.

And AS suggest part of the PSG pitch to luring Poch is keeping striker Mbappe, 22.

Last season’s Champions League finalists are only third in Ligue 1 as they bid for a fourth title in a row.

And Mbappe is thought to have had a tricky relationship with Tuchel.

Ex-Borussia Dortmund chief Tuchel is also thought to have disagreed with PSG over transfer policy.

So although his Christmas Eve exit was a shock for its suddenness, a split at sometime this season always seemed possible.

Pochettino, 48, had been eyeing the Manchester United job since spurs axed him in November 2019.

But Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revived United up to third in the Premier League and booked a Carabao cup semi-final against neighbours City.

It means Poch is overwhelming favourite to take over PSG.

Football Insider claim he is still on Tottenham’s wage bill, at £8.5million a year, due to a clause in his contract.

So, while Real might be smarting if the Argentine moves to Paris, Spurs could be the financial winners.

Poch is already being linked with a January swoop for England midfielder Dele Alli, who is out fo favour at Spurs under current manager Jose Mourinho.
