According to the Spanish press, Mauricio Pochettino is close to joining Real Madrid and could take Kylian Mbappé with him.
While several rumors announced tensions between Mauricio Pochettino and Leonardo at Paris Saint-Germain, it has given ideas to other clubs. Tottenham had previously probed the Argentina coach to bring him back, but AS informed that he is now on pole to join Real Madrid.
Indeed, the Argentinian technician would be targeted to replace Zinedine Zidane. Mauricio Pochettino still has a year of contract with PSG and Florentino Perez does not want to come into conflict with the Parisian management. But the Iberian daily informs that Pochettino would dream of coaching Real one day.
Pochettino to convince Mbappé?
In addition to the Argentine’s admiration for Madrid, Pochettino has an indisputable added value: his complicity with Mbappé. The departure of Zidane could be a brake on the arrival of the French star, but if his current coach follows him to Real, this problem will be solved. Under contract until 2022 with PSG, Mbappé has still not renewed his contract.
