Paper Talk: Serie A side eye £17m Pochettino release

Date published: Saturday 11th May 2019 9:14

Mauricio Pochettino is wanted in Serie A, Harry Maguire could wave goodbye to Leicester on Sunday and Manchester United will sell Eric Bailly to Arsenal for £30million, all in the papers.



Juventus want to make Mauricio Pochettino their head coach if the Argentine leaves Tottenham, according to Corriere dello Sport.

Pochettino, who has guided Spurs to the Champions League final, will hold make-or-break talks with Daniel Levy in the coming weeks to determine a plan for the immediate future.

Pochettino has previously been linked with Real Madrid and Manchester United, but both jobs have recently been handed to Zinedine Zidane and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, respectively.

The Italian paper claims though it may cost the Serie A champions £17million if Pochettino decides to quit and they are to land their man.
