Reported Newcastle target Mauricio Pochettino

Mauricio Pochettino has a “good offer” at the table at Newcastle United, and OC Ardilis says the move is a “possible possibility”.

Pochettino has been out of management since Tottenham sacked him in November, just five months after leading the London club to the Champions League final.

The former Argentina international has repeatedly joined Real Madrid and Manchester United in recent seasons, yet Zinedine Zidane and Ole Gunnar’s Soulskayer appear to be safe in their respective roles.

An appointment has been suggested in Newcastle in recent weeks ahead of a possible new ownership, with the Tuniside Club, led by the Saudi Arabian Public Investment Fund, reportedly close to a ড 300 million acquisition.

Newcastle head coach Steve Bruce has insisted he wants a chance to take part in a new era, yet Pochettino will remain in England and talk about the possibility of running a club outside the established ‘Top Six’ in the Premier League.

In fact, the former Todenham player and Newcastle director – Ardils is advising his friend and the compatriot is now considering an offer after his gardening holiday is over.

“Mauricio is doing well in England,” Ardiles told the Mirror. “He is associated with Newcastle United.

“And when he spoke directly to that club, there were a lot of first-level people involved who made him a good offer.

“Mauricio was one [contractual] He had a relationship with Tottenham, but his condition was unlocked last Tuesday and he is free from coaching.

“Thus, he will listen to offers again, but Newcastle is likely to work again. He will have to think and wait a bit for everything to happen.”

Former Magpis boss Rafael Benitez and former Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri have been advised to make ambitious appointments at St James’ Park.
