According to several English media, Bin Salman offers him a salary of 21 million euros a year that would put him, again, among the best paid.
Mauricio Pochettino is clear that he wants to return to English football . After leaving Tottenham after a tough start to the season, the new owners of Newcastle, still pending confirmation by the Premier League, want the Argentine to occupy the bench at St James Stadium and are willing to convince him with a great salary to raise another historical English football.
According to several English media published this Thursday on their covers, Mohamed Bin Salman offers him £ 21 million for Pochettino to take over Newcastle .
One of the conditions that the Argentinean would put would be to have a good transfer budget available, something that with Saudi ownership seems not to be lacking.
As explained by Berbatov days ago, the figure of the Argentine would convince great footballers that the project is serious and Newcastle a reliable destination, not a megaproject that will be half done.
While his name is related to Newcastle, Mauricio Pochettino gave an interview to the British channel BT Sports to review his career at Tottenham, which he said he would like to train again. “It was an impressive journey that ended in a way that we did not want to end but, in the depths of my heart, I know that our paths will cross again.
It may be in five, in ten years, but before I die I want to return to training Tottenham. I’m sure from the day I left that my dream is to come back and try to finish the job that we didn’t manage to finish.
It was incredible, we were really close to winning great titles: the Premier, the Champions … We were very near.I want to know what it is to win a title with them because the fans are spectacular and for all the love we receive . It would be a good way to give back everything they have given us, “he said with some nostalgia.
With Tottenham in memory, now, look to the future and that seems to be in the north of England. “Our paths have separated. Now I only look ahead and I am really motivated with my next project,” he said. A motivation caused, it seems, by the future liner of British football.
From position 16 to 9
If he accepted the contract with Newcastle, Mauricio Pochettino would go from being the sixteenth highest paid this season, with the 9.4 million he received a year from Tottenham, to the sixth place in the ranking thanks to the 21 kilos of the Magpies.
The Argentine would remain among the 23 million Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid and the 19 that Ernesto Valverde received in Barcelona.
