Barcelona to make move for Pochettino

Barcelona want to appoint Mauricio Pochettino, while there is plenty of news on Jose Mourinho's plans at Tottenham Hotspur. 

Barcelona want Pochettino 
The Sun reports that Mauricio Pochettino, fresh from leaving Tottenham Hotspur on Tuesday night, is a target for a host of top European sides. Bayern Munich are interested in the Argentine after they sacked Niko Kovac, but leading the way is Barcelona. Ernesto Valverde is under pressure at the Nou Camp and Pochettino could be the man to replace him. 

***: Pochettino was certainly making some controversial tactical decisions towards the end of his time at Spurs, but it was apparent that he was operating with restrictions which would have made his job untenable for almost anybody. Barcelona would be making a chance to their style if they appointed Pochettino, though, and that would be a big risk. 

Spurs contract trio to reconsider future 
One benefit of the appointment of Jose Mourinho is that they may now tie down three players who had previously been expected to leave the club for nothing in the summer, or for a nominal fee in January. Christian Eriksen, Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld will all soon be able to negotiate pre-contract deals, but the Mirror reports they are all keen to see what life is like under Mourinho. 

Mourinho wants to keep Kane 
Daily Mail believes that Mourinho has told Daniel Levy just what he wants to make the job a success. The Portuguese manager has insisted that the club do not sell Harry Kane. Mourinho met Kane for a one-on-one talk to discuss plans for the future, and the manager sees the striker as integral to his future plans. 

Mourinho’s Spurs plotting revealed 
The Telegraph reveals that Jose Mourinho’s trips to Lille over the past year were part of a plan to put together a new team so that he was ready to hit the ground running wherever he restarted his career. His choice of Nuno Santos and Joao Sacramento from the French club could be supplemented by sporting director Luis Campos, in order to aid him identify transfers.
