It’s thought Pochettino and Levy still have a good relationship and the PSG boss has previously claimed he would be open to going back to Spurs one day.

The 49-year-old took charge of PSG in January but has struggled in the French capital. Pochettino’s men were well beaten by Manchester City in the Champions League semi-finals and lost the Ligue 1 title to Lille.

Pochettino is under contract at PSG until June 2022 but Goal, per the Daily Mirror reports that he’s made it very clear that he sees his future elsewhere and would like to leave the Parc des Princes.

However, the former Spurs boss has been linked with Real Madrid, who are also looking for a new manager with Zinedine Zidane leaving earlier this week.

Pochettino has previously spoken of Real Madrid being a dream job, meanwhile he could be tasked with rebuilding Spurs without star man Harry Kane, who’s been linked with a move away this summer.

talkSPORT’s Andros Townsend belueves the uncertainty surrounding Kane’s future makes a Pochettino Spurs return ‘impossible’.

“I don’t think there’s any chance in this world Pochettino goes back to Spurs without Harry Kane. It’s impossible,” Townsend told talkSPORT.

“In today’s market, what are you going to get for £150million?

Losing Kane would be an unenviable position for any incoming Spurs boss to be put in

“If we were having this conversation in a year’s time, I would believe it. I felt the way Pochettino left, it was kind of on good terms.

“Daniel Levy and he both kind of said they will go their separate ways and will see what happens in the future.

“I think it may be a year too soon. Pochettino hasn’t done what he wanted to do at PSG. Spurs have gone a different route and it’s failed.”
