Mauricio Pochettino has admitted that he will announce his future plans after the Champions League final against Liverpool.

The Argentine has done a remarkable job at Spurs but still remains without a trophy in his five-year stay in north London – something he will hope to rectify on June 1.

Manchester United and Real Madrid have been mooted as potential landing spots in the recent times, but it would appear that Juventus are now the form favourites for Pochettino’s signature – having just parted company with Massimiliano Allegri.

Pochettino, who only penned a new five-year contract with Spurs in the summer of 2018, has been paying very little attention to the gossip and has instead been focusing his mind on securing a first ever Champions League triumph for Spurs.

However, he has been hinting in recent weeks that he could consider his future if Tottenham overcome Jurgen Klopp’s men in Madrid.

Speaking ahead of the match, he told El Partidazo de Cope: “I will not make decisions about my future [until] after the final, it is important to know what the club’s future plan is.

“If we want to return to the Champions League final next year and fight with Manchester City and Liverpool for the Premier League title, we need reinforcements.

“City’s goal was to win the Champions League, ours to finish building our stadium.”

Pochettino, meanwhile, has confirmed that Spurs are set to take advantage of Real’s facilities ahead of the clash with Liverpool.

“Ahead of the final, we will train at Valdebebas and sleep in a nearby hotel.

“I asked [Real Madrid president] Florentino [Perez] to let us sleep in the sports centre, but he told me that I can only sleep there when I become the coach of Real Madrid.”
